Is there truth in the statement "Republicans love America in theory and hate it in fact."
Same for democrats.
Yes, Republicans love America, in theory AND fact.
Their idea of America is much whiter and more christian I suspect. Dream on.
Dripping with bias.
Why? As skinner, I assume a republican, said below, and many republicans openly state, they do not like what America is and is becoming. Perhaps not as dramatic as "hate," and certainly not a bad thing.
I just don't like the way the question is phrased
Not my phrasing, I heard it and thought it was an interesting interpretation of the party
The statement inferred Republicans do not love America. Based on what? The viewpoint from oppositional parties. What did you think the results would be!? There is not a quantitative measure of the intent of a party, ANY party.
Because a party has a different method of improving a country doesn't make their love for the country any less legitament. The only way this statement would hold any water would be in the even a party was intent on destroying America.
Again, I think you look at the Republican Party today and they do not love what America is. They're calling for more change these days than liberals are. And again, this is not necessarily a bad thing.
Should I not ask questions if I think I know...
...what the results will be?
Both parties try to improve America, both have their own way of going about it. The goal is the same, improvement. I don't understand how anybody could seriously say 1 party doesn't love America without blatant bias for the opposing party.
Well then was the question based on political policy or general sentiment for the direction of America.
And who says I wouldn't say the same thing about democrats? Just because a question is asked about one party doesn't automatically mean bias toward the other one. However, there's certainly a difference in the tone of the two parties.
Because it was explicitly asked about a single party. Claiming a party "doesn't love America" is entirely biased. Because one doesn't understand or subscribe to the methods of a party doesn't mean a party doesn't love America.
Then answer "No" if you don't agree
I don't understand what you want. You want me to ask "Republicans and democrats" and never ask about a specific party?
You asked me why I though it was biased. So I responded. You don't have to change anything. You asked me a question and I responded.
But that's not bias, it's a question about the party. It's asking if there is truth in this perspective on the Republican party. I didn't say "Republicans hate America, yes or yes?"
The statement that a political party "hates America" is motivated by biased political opinions.
Saying "abortion should be legal" is a biased statement. So should we not ask people if they agree with that "biased statement"?
I never told you not to ask a biased question. I just identified this statement as biased and you asked why I thought it was so, and I answered you. I never told you to do anything differently.
Oh ok, that makes sense
False we are just appalled at what is happening to America
Not trying to be biased or rail against republicans, I just see this as an interesting insight into what conservatives today think about the country
