Here is my review of Rick Perry's recent campaign ad.
Julia, this seems to have the answers you are looking for.
Thank you so much. I get so confused. I'm a freshman in high school, and no one bothers to tell me anything.
I guess what originally confused me is people like Hank, who said that John was more liberal, and John (i believe) said he had never voted for a liberal candidate. (This was all on vYou.) From what they talk about when they talk about politics, it seems that they are both on the Democratic side.
If the above is all wrong, forgive me. I'm very fuzzy on the topic. I'm not legally allowed to vote, okay?
EDIT: After reading this, it is much more clear to me which is which. I am now going to be better educated when someone talks about left/right. THANKS!!
Okay, thank you, like I said, very, very fuzzy.
Wow, that is REALLY helpful.
I do like this bit: "On the U.S. political map, blue represents the Democratic Party (which generally upholds liberal principles) and red represents the Republican party (which generally upholds conservative principles)."
You'd expect it to be the opposite since red always symbolizes equality and blue symbolizes freedom.
I know, I get so confused. I don't understand a bit of political parties. I just believe what I believe and root (since I can't vote) for people I agree with.
Well it did used to be the other way around. The democratic party was conservative and the republicans were liberal.
This is too weird. Thank God my country's politics are simple: Labour are left, Likud are right, Shas are religious conservative, THEY'RE ALL IDIOTS :)
Well, that depends on what you mean by Liberal. Sure, they were for freeing the slaves, but they were also for kicking them back out to Africa to give whites more jobs.
Don't confuse me anymore than I am already confused. They barely know what they are, let alone we know what they are. :-)
After reading that, I want to know how anyone could honestly vote for Republicans. Honestly..
I did the same thing. I think you may be my new friend for sharing this. Meaghan's head desking comment that is.
Yeah, the head desk is felt around Nerdfighteria.
