I didn't think you were attacking me... I think we understand each others character. Taking offence to you would be like taking offence to Derek (which a lot of people do) but when you get to know his character a bit more you start to realise that generally he's just being Derek.Trader Pat wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 2:22 pmWasn't having a go at you James I was quoting Derek and you happened to be part of the quote. Sorry if it it came across as an attack on you.jamesg46 wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 1:40 pmMost people do, they're just unaware, especially the left... I mean dont get me wrong, im not left or right leaning... but instantly you have to be more susceptible to gullibility if you're not conservative.
Anyway, I'm not sure how many times I have to explain it before it soaks in, but just because I write something doesn't mean I believe it to be fact. The reason I'm interested is because (if/could/may) have an impact on market activity.
Interesting idea though, if we're still talking about America how can the left be more gullible than the right? The right is where the evangelicals live, they make up about 25% of the electorate and you won't find a more gullible group of people than them. The right is where most of Fox News viewers come from and they've pedaled rubbish for years and have the highest viewership and ratings. Then there's right wing radio stations and YouTube channels that deal in conspiracy theories and worse.
There are obviously gullible people on both sides who believe what they want but its hard to make a case that the left is more gullible than the right.
I want to respond to your second part in more depth but I was confusing Liberal & Conservative with Left & Right, which in general im assuming is the assumption.
Anyway, what I meant by it is the definition in the screen shots above. The rest of what you say is a whole other debate, one I'd have very little chance of winning.
