    Think about your philosophy. Whether you subscribe mainly to a political philosophy, religious philosophy, secular philosophy etc what is it that you don’t believe about that philosophy?

    For example, if you are a Liberal, what part of the Liberal philosophy that is normally attached to Liberalism do you disagree with? Are you a person who believes in socialized health care but you disagree with a woman having the freedom to choose? If you are a Republican, do you agree with trickle down economics but you disagree with the common party stance on homosexuality and marriage? If you are a Christian do you agree that Jesus died for your sins but you believe it is ok to eat shellfish?

    What don’t you believe about the philosophy of the tribe you identify with?

    I don't believe in the No nukes attitude. I agree with it on Fission but think that Fusion is the future. I am against anti-science from either side.

    I hate, despise, detest, loathe, abhor and execrate country music. Except for Taylor Swift (with the sound off)

    I don't believe anyone knows anything about the meaning of life. No ..... that's not true ..... I firmly believe that no one knows anything about the meaning of life.

    It sounds like you are very certain about what you believe about the meaning of life.

    I'm not really much of an ideologue, but I do try to adhere to stoicism, however, one can be too stoic and have it work against one's best interests.

    I'm a moderate myself. I believe there should be the option of socialized healthcare along with private options. I believe in the woman's freedom to choose but not in the third trimester. I don't believe in trickle down economics or plundering the rich. I believe in trans rights but they shouldn't compete in female sports. I believe we need much better border security, but also a pathway to citizenship for illegals, and greatly increased immigration for high skill immigrants.

    We moderates need to exist in order to temper the excesses of the extremist factions.

    No. Read what I wrote again. I am very certain about what others do not know about the meaning of life.

    I always knew that was a myth.
    That still sounds like you have a sense of certainty about at least that one aspect about the Meaning of Life otherwise you couldn’t know what other people don’t know. Ya know?

    I don't need to know what the meaning of life is or if there is one at all in order to realize that IF THERE IS A CREATOR IN ALL OF THAT POWER AND WISDOM he/she/it didn't write the bible.

    I actually could not choose any of the options offered in your poll.

    One of the only ideas that I do not believe in is the idea that our Creator ever really gives up on us repenting and being restored......
    I am biased though by the wording in Leviticus chapter sixteen verse ten where it appears that Moses may have been given a
    prediction about one of the leading "Satan's" eventually being restored to faith and obedience to the G-d of Abraham.

    Why is the name "Azazel" in Leviticus 16 verse ten in the RSV?

    Bingo! I believe in the dream and the Blue States. But red states are now the enemy. They would put a dictator in power tomorrow if they could. We have fought wars to defeat what they now represent.

    That happens to me sometimes. The car dealership replaced my infotainment panel and wanted to charge us $2000 for it and I was like, “oh well, Amor Fati,” but my wife was like “eff that!” And twenty minutes later they did the entire job for free.

    The way you guys imitate us, it's almost flattering. Well, it would be if it wasn't so goofy.

    Pragmatism is part of our culture, has been since the 1800s.

    You can see it if you know what to look for:

    Show me state

    Show me the numbers, etc.

    You can get by comfortably with a small number of assumptions...

    You're just butt hurt over something - who knows what.

    The bottom line is whether we believe in democracy anymore.

    And, what we have is a Republican party that absolutely opposes democracy in favor of leadership that has NO INTEREST in the law.

    Hitler was before my time.There are better, newer examples, esp. Communist and Soviet dictators. And of course, our current dictator.
