  3. 3. Which of the following statements are mostly true for you?

    • I'm socially liberal primarily because I believe in human rights and equality, and I trust the state governments less than I trust the federal government in enforcing these rights nationwide.
    • I'm socially liberal primarily because I find social conservatives either racist, ignorant, selfish, backward, or otherwise repellent, even if I don't always side with my fellow social liberals.
    • I'm a centrist/moderate primarily because the country is so partisan, the fringes so vocal, and the proposed legislation often more ceremonial or attention grabbing than practical. A country as diverse as we are should be bipartisan and accept that the center should rule.
    • I'm a social conservative primarily because I think foreign values are diluting the purity of our American values. These American values are best protected by keeping the federal government out.
    • I am socially conservative primarily because I believe in civil liberties and the right to discriminate, the right to keep my earnings free of taxation, the right to profit, the right to run my business and my life the way I see fit.
    • I am socially conservative primarily because of my religious upbringing.
    • I am socially conservative primarily because my parents are or primarily because the community where I was raised was.
      0
    • I am socially liberal primarily because my parents are or primarily because the community where I was raised was.
      0
    • I share the same social political views as most of my family.
    • I share the same social political views as most of my current community.
    • I have had the same social political views for at least the last five years.
    • I would not be surprised if my social political views changed drastically in the next 10 years or so.
    • I read social political material and news that contradicts my own opinions so that I can learn alternative view points?
    • I am prone to mimicking the social political views of political figures I admire, such as Bernie Sanders, Ron Paul, Donald Trump, Elizabeth Warren, Ted Cruz, etc.
    • My social political views are formed primarily through experience, contemplation, and research rather than through the words of an individual such as Sanders, Paul, Trump, Warren, Cruz, etc.
    • I believe I would have the views I have today even if my parents, residence, community, income, gender, sexual orientation, education, etc. had been vastly different.
    • I believe in the separation of Church and State, and the First Amendments statement against the establishment of a national religion.
    • I believe that any violation of the separation of Church and State, be it the overt influence of the Religious Right, "In God We Trust" on coins, "So help me God"'s use in the oath of office, are probably unconstitutional.
    • The country would be stronger, more advanced, and more beneficial to the human race if both major parties were socially liberal rather than if both parties were socially conservative.
    • None of these apply to me.

Not really. But if simple single-cause declarations of major political shifts and scapegoating are your thing - I'm not sure what to say.

Reagan believed in tearing down walls.

Trump wants to build them.

Reagan called America the last best hope for all people all over the world, a shining beacon of freedom and a city on a hill.

Trump views us as a broken has been overrun with the browns that needs to be "made great again".

Nuff said.

Well put.

Reagan also wasn’t a big fan of Russia.

The completely unnecessary driving up of the American debt that was a big part of his plan to end the Cold War was probably the biggest flaw in his Cold War endgame strategem, though.

Indeed, but no one ever said winning a war was cheap. We don't criticize the debt gained from WWII or Cold because we won both.

Calling the Cold War a "war," in the classical sense, is erroneous. It ended up playing out more like the Colonial Era battle for the world by the Great Powers prior to the World Wars. The "Cold" adjective was actually applied to make this distinction - as opposed to a "hot" war, such as a World War. This distinction is not just semantics. And the horrible things done by both sides, and the puppet regimes and uprisings propped up in proxy nations by BOTH sides, were morally just as horrible as the Colonial Era.

Obviously, but that doesn't mean that such a conflict can't be won just as a classical war can be won.
