Reader: The more liberal a place, the more awesome it is

Our post about the prospect of Denver hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention (the city is still in the running) included comments from the RNC Facebook page, including one that dubbed the Colorado capital a "liberal shithole." That phrase inspired interesting takes from lots of readers, including this one.

Scott Raile writes:

No such thing as a "liberal shithole." The more liberal a place is, the more awesome it is (and vice versa). I mean, where would you rather be: Vermont, or Mississippi?

I agree because I personally am not a centrist, I am just saying without political process a place has lost what makes the idea of democracy a unique and somewhat useful premise

...and even more ludicrous is the notion of self-proclaimed "serious Centrists" woefully attempting to claim some nonexistent high ground when even a brief overview of recent history has demonstrated that the most disastrous policies do not necessarily need to be the result of "extremist" ideology but rather from shrewd compromising.

Denver is "a liberal shithole" -- if one uses the word "liberal" in its modern sense of "reactionary".

its funny that extreme opinions dominate politics, Id rather have a state thats balanced than either of the extremes in all honesty because it allows for true discussion and noone feels alienated or obviously looked down upon for their opinions

@RobertChase You don't even know what Liberal means!  Your post is a classic example of projection.  When I read a post like yours, I can never tell if you are lying or just stupid.  Funny, that's the same question I used to ask about reagan.

You are wrong.  Your inability to see obvious differences does not mean they don't exist.  For example, all 5 conservative justices, the band of idiots, gave us Citizen's United.  All Liberal justices voted against that idiotic ruling.

This is the single dumbest post I've seen yet.  Remember when reagan said the Taliban were the moral equivalent to the founding fathers while he was arming and training them?


Conservatives are America's Taliban.
