Thought experement part 2 "The Left"
Original post made by M on Aug 7, 2009
Just as before I would like to know why exactly you did not like McCain. The same rules apply as in the last challenge. Was it because of his age? Was it because he is not a member of your political party? Just as before please no canned answers, party tag lines or sound bite worthy quotes.
This time I do want to make it clear, that this is not meant as an attack on either camp, or any individual or their beliefs. The reason I ask these questions is because I hear so many people simply repeat what they are told on the news, or what the politico blogs prattle on and on with. This leads me to think that regardless of intent people are not thinking for themselves in many cases. I could go on and on about the psychological mechanisms at play which causes this kind of "group think" but I'm quite sure that is beyond the scope of this simple topic, and nobody is all that interested in such things. So without further excessive verbiage please do tell us what you did not like about McCain.
