Just a PSA: Open Your Mind, Not Your Mouth

I have a confession: I tend to associate the terms “conservative” and “republican” with bigotry, racism and misogyny. I know that all republicans are not like that, and I'm working on adjusting my views. However, every time I log on to CNN, many of the comments make me stand by my incorrect views. I think that many of the small-minded people who attack “liberals” tend to associate “liberals” with lazy, uneducated minorities and welfare recipients.

A liberal is a person who is “open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard non-traditional views.” Where in that definition does it say “person of a lower class who wants nothing more than a handout and does everything in their power to get over on people”? None.

While I'm not a political person, I don't understand how a person can strongly dislike someone who is open to new ideas. As times change and technology advances, tradition does not always apply. Chill the fuck out, conservatives. I know that tradition means a lot to you, but at some point, you have to open your mind. And if you can't do that, at the minimum, shut the fuck up. Sheesh.
