Do you believe that most people in the "other" political party (from yours) are intellectually or morally flawed?
...meaning, look at what the Democrats believe on major issues, and compare them to what the Church teaches. The Democratic Party's positions are completely against Catholic teachings.
@ optimist: I agree; in fact, they have no morals. Ann Coulter had it right in her book "Demonic". The entire Left is just pure mob mentality. And any devout Catholic who is voting Democrat is practically spitting on the Catechism.
If you can't see much difference between Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Romney, you are smarter than the average Demoplican/Republicrat. They are all statists with no regard for limited, constitutional government.
This is quite scary. How are we still functioning with this attitude?
I have some near and very dear friends who are Dems, What amazes me is that they are normally very intelligent people, they just have this one "brain fart" thing where they can't seem to see where this idiot of a President is taking the country.
I'm proud to be an independent from S.D.
And I'm catholic. It isn't because of their party, it's because of what they think as a party.
No offense. Democrats are great- but they are illmoral on my terms.
Really??? Come on, morally flawed based on policy differences? I think that sounds absurd. And I'm a catholic.
This is why I hate this planet.
Logically flawed, yes
People who say yes are what is wrong with America
I think the people in my party are flawed. It's called being human
Intellectually no. Morally - on some issues, yes.
I think it doesn't matter what party you are, what you believe in and what your morals are, everyone has their opinions and beliefs. It didn't make them right or wrong, it's all an opinion. So show some respect for each other.
I don't think most are, just the ones in that party's leadership
Honestly, I do. I just don't see the logic in not wanting equal rights for everyone, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexuality. It just baffles me.
I'm a liberal. I think gays should be able to get married without getting picked on. Animals are souls too. I don't think all conservatives think the same way as me about gays and animals, but some do. Morally flawed isn't the right word, because moral has many meanings depending on your thought
No..most people aren't so different if you take the time to talk to them about their political beliefs..
If liberals are so smart, then why do they rely on the government so much to live their lives? It only shows that they are to stupid to make personal choices and rely on other people's money for a living.
Republicans are statistically less intelligent. And this is just an opinion but I like to think that intelligent people have better morals.
No. An opinion is like an @sshole. Everyone has them.
Reading these comments simply makes me sad. And I always thought the SoH group was for the most part, more fair minded. Guess not. Being ignorant, and too lazy to look into an issue further than mass media or what pastor Jim Bob told you doesn't make you morally bankrupt. It makes you naive.
Having different political beliefs doesn't make people less anything. It just means they think about things differently. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

Nope, just manipulated by gifts and promises.
I think they might be "misguided"
Hmm... Interesting map. I think I'll head north.
In the case of Democrats it's not just what I think but reality
@Destroyer-- Wittlebaby is not a Republican or anything else he/she purports to represent. But he/she successfully manipulated you into drawing the desired inaccurate conclusion.
I believe dylansl sums up modern politics quite well, without going so far as to be insulting.
I am seeing a lot of grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors in a lot, I mean a lot, of the obvious republican posts. Wittlebaby is the most prominent example, well done.
I like the economic side of dem and the social side of rep but the system makes it hard to choose both
Alas the other party IS unworthy.
my near possible extinction. I think Im prone to suck the throw up of injustice directly down the throat my esophagus. The imminent feeling of death is soon intertwining the radical motion between my crap hole & the illustrious dispositions of unfortified non-achievers in which salvation is the end.
Rep2012 showcases all the evidence necessary
The two party system is a worm trying to suck the saliva of anal fluids out of my rectum. More words of freedum bull go down my throat than comes out. Libertarian spell free with a dom. This still doesn't explain my strong libertarianism. I feel like I'm trying to kick a gorilla off my throat from
rep2012 don't use that word...
Some of these comments make me sad. Religious=moron. Liberal=unAmerican. Really?
It's amazing how big some people act behind a screen.
@dylansl, Moderates / Independents are not indecisive, we just have a mixture of conservative and liberal beliefs.
Republicans are arrogant, democrats are cowards, independents are indecisive, libertarians are naive, statists are power-hungry...
You just can't win when you pick sides. Our first president said to not pick sides. And he was our best leader.
Morally yes, intellectually... Maybe
Just the leaders
Rep2012 Your comment only proves how crazy some Republicans are...
Dems are retarded, non American socialists. There dangerous and will be delt with accordingly.
Only the leaders and the fringe
Just because I don't agree with someone doesn't necessarily mean they're flawed. I'm a moderate ( dying breed), and often the most practical solution lies in the middle. That is, there are elements of truth (usually) to both positions.
The Partys have become a brand, complete with lame logos. Their sole duty and purpose is to market their brand and pit one group against another. I think it's ignorant to injest and spew whatever your Party is feeding you as truth without checking any facts.
it is not necessarily the other people it is there lieing party leadership that blow smoke rings up there brown ring then they believe it
