Because Conservatives have nowhere else to go.

American Conservatives are hated by pretty much the rest of the world and more than half of the U.S. There is no place that American Conservatism exists except for parts of middle America. They're viewed as the fat, ignorant, red armed simple folk in flyover country who listen to talk radio in order to hear about stuff that they know nothing about, but hear buzz words which make then into angry idiots. They live to be angry about stuff. When was the last time anyone listened to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity, and felt good about the U.S. afterwards. Never. Glenn, Rush and Sean know their audience, and feed them as such.

They love words like "liberty" and "freedom". Words they know nothing about, but their masters throw them a peanut every so often and they eat it up. They believe they are the "real" Americans. "Real" being the moronic masses who think that Obama is a terrorist muslim born outside of the U.S.

Don't pay any attention to the Conservatives. They're the champions of Joe McCarthy, Pat Robertson, and G.W. Bush. A.K.A. Morons of the highest regard. They're the kind of people who believe that if you're poor in the U.S., it was your own damn fault.

Heartless, brainless, and soulless. They're a stain on the U.S. that we're doing the best to get rid of. No one likes a moron.

WAs a Obama supporter? Most libs believe in the betterment of all man kind. Cons believe in everyone for themselves. No Libs have a love and hate relationship with America. ><

I believe it started with the Vietnam War. The ppl that spoke out against it were not Americans. We should just go along with a war, that in essence was going into a place that we wanted under pretense that the citizens of that country wanted our help.

The reason we lost that war was because of the traitors (charlie's= s. vietnamese who were helping n. vietnamese) that have come to America and we have paid millions of millions of dollars to those ppl. I have heard them dis-respect our country then talk about us. Even to this day they black market our money back to Vietnam.

That is where it started. When we protest a War that we are in because of power & greed, that put our children's lives at stake, we are considered Hating America.

Because we care about all the poor children that they didn't want to be aborted. We see nothing wrong withthe government stepping in to help these poor kids, since their parents surely don't do it. They would let them sink or swim, or let churches be the only source or charity where the kids can get some conditional love. They only care about the suburban "good-ol' boys" network. We embrace the diversity in our USA, but they think it threatens their power.

We can see when our country makes a mistake (Iraq, GWB) but they would support anything a Republican president could do, whether it's starting a war with Canada or allowing insurance companies to consider injuries from domestic violence to be a "pre-existing condition" that's not covered. They may put more American flags on their bumpers and lapels, but that's just lip-service. We realize that the USA is part of planet earth. They think we live in the world alone, and since most of the rest of the world is "going to hell anyway" they don't care what effects we have on the planet.

I do realize that there are some really radical left wingers who really do think the USA can do nothing right, but the cons generalize and exaggerate and say that all democrats

are marxists, which is a logical fallacy. Compared to Europe and Australia, our Democrats are right of center, but when our govt steps in to prop up a large company like GM, they start screaming socialism. Of course, they didn't say this when Bush bailed out the airlines after 9/11.

Ray-here... Gee I thought you would be flattered that we care... and I am SURE YOU PERSONALLY WOULD .. if we were taking and agreeing with points you made....

I think because we sit back and look into america from the outside... many things are of interest to us...

I find the health care issue extremely interesting... the fear, the paranoia, the misinformation... and the times that we and other nations with Socialised health care are thrown up as examples of HOW IT DOESN'T WORK.. so BUD, that's one reason why we take an interest because it is important that YOUR people are informed of the truth and not the B/S.

I think even many of the aussie Liberals ( who are more like your republicans, they are our conservative party) would argue the benefits of a nationalised health care system.

NSA~~ you are actually paraphasing a mis-representation of a speech that was reported as being made by our previous prime-minister John Howard.. now I wasn't a John Howard supporter... BUT EVEN HE DIDN'T SAY THAT .. and the same speech was dragged up again recently but this time attributed to Kevin Rudd... AND I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A LINK TO PROVE IT... JUST HAVE TO CHECK MY PREVIOUS answers.

Why Do Conservatives Consider Liberals To Hate America?

Because all the left do is blame and attack America . They find fault with almost everything and anything that America does and stands for while they praise the rest of the world. They act like the rest of the world is some kind of damn utopia where everyone lives together in harmony and everyone is tolerant and there's no racism and woman have rights and gays are all excepted "all except for the United States". Which is lying B.S propaganda. The Europeans are so full of themselves in pretending that they live in such a tolerant non racist society. This might be the ideal which they want to reflect and fools themselves with but the ideal usually doesn't reflect the reality. I know for a fact that racism and insidious racism is a big problem in France.

Conservatives hate the liberal "version" of America.

Liberals hate the conservative "version" of America.

Not America itself.

Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Fox (Faux) News. These are all their noise making lie spewing sources. Hannity openly lies on television, Fox twists the facts to make them look bad. The search and surveillance he dropped is a good thing. I recently heard a Conservative complaining about it. It's a communistic invasion of our privacy.

Liberals and Conservatives are like two brothers in a frontier cabin with Natives approaching. The conservative brother grabs his gun to great the Natives and the Liberal brother gives them the benefit of the doubt and goes unarmed. Who is right and who is wrong when confronting the unknown? Don't know until after the fact do we?

Neither one of them has proven to always be right and neither one of them is always wrong but apparently they are hardwired differently and will forever disagree.
2009-09-18 00:41:42 UTC
Same here I've been called Unamerican once but I think they fall for the stereotype of a Liberal I Love My Country The U.S But I guess They Do That Because they see the Definition of a patriot/true american in a different way
2009-09-18 17:54:05 UTC
Yes conservative thinks libs hate America. I say America isn't perfect but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else Why don't you support Obama. What have he done to you? :))

For many years the Republicans have considered themselves more patriotic than Democrats. When a Republican is in the White House, Republicans consider dissent as subversive and even treasonous, but when a Democrat is in the White House the Republicans suddenly realize that dissent is patriotic 8^)

Republicans have really coarsened and lowered the level of political discourse in the US. Since they usually have their own party in the White House, they have come to think of the presidency as their property. So when a Democrat wins the presidency they feel they've been robbed, and they don't believe he is legitimate. They refuse to cooperate with a Democratic president because that would only hand him a victory and validate his presidency. So they reflexively disagree with anything he says or does or wants. Everything he does, they find some reason to be outraged about it. And they take any chance to bash him.

For years now 'liberal' was a bad word, it was the word Republicans used to dismiss anyone they disagreed with or any idea they didn't like. Now the word is completely worn out, so now they use words like 'socialist', 'communist', 'marxist' and even 'fascist'. And these words are interchangeable to them; they can't tell the difference anyway.

The garden variety leftist attacks our country with every breath, oblivious to the fact that their ability to speak out, to acquire their toys, to travel and protest and whine, are provided by the very system they despise. They know only hate for those who disagree with their Utopian vision of unchecked liberalism. They immediately label as racists any who counter their nonsensical ramblings with the logic of protecting our sovereignty and future. They want but one thing...for their fellow travelers to control Congress and the White House. o_O

"liberal in the American sense not Australian"

Isn't it a shame we always have to explain ourselves?

"I was a big Obama supporter."

Yeah; me too BUT, ultimately he's just another USian, eh?

He'll look after USian interests first at any expense.

2009-09-18 00:27:25 UTC
Because Conservatives are hypocrites. Every time they condemn a democrat, there has been a republican who has done the exact same thing before with their full support. I really don't understand why republicans can't see this.. its hilarious....I can cite thousands of examples and it still wouldnt make a difference.
2009-09-18 14:22:50 UTC
You lie. LOL! Just kidding. We don't hate America. :/
2009-09-18 00:20:46 UTC
You're the first liberal I've seen post here at Y/A who does love America.

Gd on ya,mate!
2009-09-18 04:28:31 UTC
Liberals in the US act like they hate everything America stands for.
2009-09-18 01:05:39 UTC
In general, Liberals are constantly attempting to change the fundamental way of American life. They seem to have a need to change America into Europe West.

If those Liberals want a European life, or Canadian life, then to paraphrase Kevin Rudd They can exercise an American freedom. They are free to leave America.

Here is the American version:

I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on 9/11 01i , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans.'

This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the Language!

Most Americans believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture...

We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.

This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great American freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.

If you aren't happy here then LEAVE.

Thank you Kevin Rudd.

I dont think they hate America. I think they take too much responsibility. They think everyone who cannot afford something needs them to get it for them. That would be ok but they also think the rest of us should pitch in too. I have a problem there. You want to give yours away, cool, but dont come after mine.
2009-09-18 01:23:20 UTC
Go to an American university and you'll see why.
2009-09-18 00:30:44 UTC
The american liberals are not liberal at all. They support the same big government and empire as the 'conservatives', who themselves, are not conservative.

Everything America is, has been and was founded on goes against the grain of what today's "liberals" stand for. This is a fact that isn't even in dispute by their own side, but they're so damned open-minded that they can't even take their own position on their own argument.
2009-09-18 19:23:05 UTC
IDK but some cons thinks they're more patriotic and Mr./Mrs. know it all. Clearly the last eight years is proof that we don't need more of that. :)
2009-09-18 00:25:03 UTC
Now why in the hell would we care how an Australian feels about us?
2009-09-18 00:19:04 UTC
Because disagreement can only be one of two things in the mind of a self-absorbed idiot.

Stupidity or evil.

Many liberals fall into the same trap.
2009-09-18 00:26:44 UTC
haha well becuse you dont understand our constitution. barrack says it is imperfect and has flaws and needs to be changed. and his blind sheep follow not to mention they seem to do what the opposite of americas best interest.
2009-09-18 00:22:41 UTC
They think they have all the "right" ideas - you know, like Jim Crow laws, Military-Industrial corporate wealth-building and war-mongering, Prison-Industrial complex creation, making the rich richer, etc.
2009-09-18 02:56:25 UTC
because marxism is destructive to societial health and obviously your an obama supporter as your not here and you dont have to live through this train wreck.
2009-09-18 00:23:12 UTC
Mostly because if they could they'd rewrite our Constitution to whatever Karl Marx says.

Our nation spread capitalism...throughout the world....and to Australia.

I refuse to spread joy, wealth, safety, security, and peace (through wealth) to the rest of the world...

Then be hounded for it.

Karl Marx was an idiot. The founders of our nation said he was an idiot before he existed.

We're Americans because we're free and we're not willing to give it up.

Liberals do hate America. Mostly because they have no understanding of what actually happens when Marxs ideaology is used.

Because their more left leaning individuals push socialism over individual freedom, liberty, and responsibility.

Because liberals are openly stating they should exterminate republicans.

"we need to get rid of all republicans, and by that i mean they don't deserve life itself.

there incredibly stupid and stubborn and nothing will change them but death"
