Yes in case I didn't say it loudly enough:

ALL CONSERVATIVES ARE BAD PEOPLE.

You cannot support policies designed to harm vulnerable people and be a good person.

Don't like the reality, change your policies.

Agree 100% I know there are those that say 1/3 of our population can't be bad, but they are. I have enlightened a couple that called themselves fiscal conservatives, that means they want to feel good but refuse to do anything to help the less fortunate.

One third is pretty accurate if you read this (free) book by Bob Altemayer. It's a light read. At least in tone. To learn that there are so many people that wouldn't mind "a strong leader" is a bit unsettling.

Can’t agree. Can’t. You do you but I just can’t go there. You might ask yourself how does it end? Do you think if we tell 47% of the populace that they are bad period that they will have an epiphany and come to agree with you? Just don’t see the viable path

In my view, it's not about "good" and "bad" people. Most of us are somewhere in between and trying to do more good than bad. I think they are better described as misguided and/or ignorant.

It might help if we stopped using a polite word like "conservative" to describe people who support policies designed to harm vulnerable people.

I get the sentiment but somehow it seems they get to set the language.

It's true that's where the battle is.

So I propose we make it so "conservative" isn't a polite word. When you think about it, that's what that person and that stars wars person were objecting to.
