Some of us, joe, believe the truth. You may choose not to, that's your right.
Sorry, nac. Everything you've posted is an opinion and is ONLY widely believed by nut cases like you. And worse, it's not even your opinion, it's the right wing noise machine's propaganda that you believe. Making you, I guess, a "faith-based" stooge.

Here some right wing "beliefs":

Man-made global warming is a hoax.

Corporations don't need to be regulated.

The economy is driven by investors not by demand.

God wrote the Bible.

The rich deserve lower tax rates than the non-rich.

Anyone who is poor is so because they're lazy.

President Obama is a: socialist, nazi, communist, Muslim, going to take your gun, wants to won your children, is satan, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.

Voter fraud is rampant.

Sex education causes pregnancy.

Women SHOULD be paid 77% of men.

Women should not have rights over their bodies.

Money is more important than people.

The planet is 6,000 years old.

I could go on for quite awhile but will merely point out that the world the righties believe in looks very similar to the Middle Ages.

As is your custom, you brought up a host of nonsense that I did not say, while ignoring everything I did say.

If "everything I wrote is opinion," feel free to refute it with facts. But pulling unrelated deflections out of your azz does not refute my points, nor does it add substance to the conversation. Frankly it only makes you somehow look even more like a petulant child.

I've explained this to you before, and you didn't understand it... I'll explain it again, even though I have no reason to believe it this time:

The fact that I'm not "left wing," does not make me "right wing." As far as I'm concerned, both of those wings have gotten us into the mess we are in. While its true that I've never voted for a democrat for president, it's also true that I've never voted for a republican either.

To me, dems are arguing that 1 + 1 = 3 while the reps are arguing that 1 + 1 = 1.

Just because I can see that YOUR math doesn't add up, doesn't mean I agree with the other idiot with bad math that fights with you. I have the ability to think for myself. You should try it some time.

And still you won't answer. I guess we can assume that at least some of those items are what you believe.'Cause you sure don't express ANY progressive (with a small p; i.e., favoring or advocating progress, change, improvement, or reform, as opposed to wishing to maintain things as they are)ideas now do you?

Ok fine, I'll address your childish nonsense.

I don't know if Man-made global warming is a hoax or not.

Corporations need to be regulated, the extent of regulation is what an adult would discuss about it.

The economy is more complex than you have described, and cannot be summarized in a useful way in one sentence.

I'm pretty sure that the bible is the work of man, but I don't have one handy - so I cant check for an author credit.

I do not believe that "The rich deserve lower tax rates than the non-rich."

I do not believe that "Anyone who is poor is so because they're lazy."

Your nonsense about the President is too idiotic to address.

I don't know if "Voter fraud is rampant" or not. I voted once, I don't know what anyone else did.

Sex causes pregnancy.

I do not believe that "Women SHOULD be paid 77% of men."

I do not believe that "Women should not have rights over their bodies."

Money more important than people? Depends on the person.

I don't know how old the earth is. It was here when I arrived, all I can definitively say is that its older than me.

Satisfied?

Another in the series "What's Wrong with Righty"

A strong belief in a hands off approach to economics (laissez-faire free markets) is tightly linked to the rejection of scientific facts such as climate change, according to research published in Psychological Science in late March.

Those who rejected climate change appeared to be more accepting of conspiracy theories in general. Belief that the moon landing was actually staged on Earth, that the government allowed the 9/11 terrorist attacks occur so they could invade the Middle East, and other conspiracy theories predicted rejection of climate change.

“This finding suggests that a general propensity to endorse any of a number of conspiracy theories predisposes people to reject entirely unrelated scientific facts,” Lewandowsky and his colleagues said.
