How can liberals be more tolerant, when they are so often intolerant toward the free speech of anyone who expresses a conservative opinion on any particular issue? Would the Buddha encourage such extreme partisanship?
More in U.S. Say They Are Better Off Than in Past Elections:
A majority of Americans believe they are better off now than before Trump took office.
How is the left going to win over these people by insisting on taxpayer funded abortion and countless gender pronouns?
The Buddha taught the middle way, and the left is getting more and more extreme.
Why is Donald Trump such a polarizing figure? He represents both everything that is great and everything that is wrong about America. Instead of fanatically hating or defending him, why not just respect the office of president and be thankful that we live in a country where even the low-income enjoy a higher standard of living than a vast majority of the world’s people? What attitude would the Buddha want us to have toward our country and president?
The pro-life argument is simple. If we can’t trust a politician to defend the right to life, the most fundamental human right, then we can’t trust that politician on any other issue. One might disagree with that argument, but it’s worth noting that Buddhism has traditionally opposed abortion as the taking of an innocent life. Even if you support abortion, why should my tax dollars pay for it? All the major 2020 Democratic candidates support repealing the Hyde amendment.
