Do you think it's possible that online Republicans get most of their opinions on liberals from trolls?
There are tons of trolls in this section posing as liberals to affirm conservative view points. The odd thing is that many of the Republicans in this section believe they're serious.
Do you think many Republican opinions you see online are just reactions to trolls?

There are a lot of responses here that are affirming my opinions of Liberals, by Liberals.
All they can do and do so is reference Fox News, which they watch more than Conservatives do. I've seen and heard Liberals in the outside world do the drama-queen hyper emotionalism when confronted with a differing opinion.
Or there's the extreme question about a scenario that would never happen. And Liberals have demonstrated that you cannot bash Obama ever, but it's best to bash Bush for having done the same thing Obama carries out and continues from Bush. Also, you cannot believe in God unless it's somehow connected to Allah, the non-god. And we are not allowed to judge a culture that kills its people over ridiculously small infractions in comparison.

I doubt it, although some might be fooled. The trolls on both sides of the conservative-progressive (they aren't liberals) battle are pretty obvious to rational people.
Not all conservatives are any more rational than the progressives but they do have an innate edge on them. Conservative philosophies are usually more pragmatic than the progressive too often fairy tale idealism.
PS: I am a true liberal. See below. Most progressives and some socialists today fraudulently call themselves "liberal" and falsely call true liberals "conservative" so they can steal the true liberals' label.
PPS: Too many true liberals also have their fairy tale ideals. Regrettably for us, practical realities of today's still-grossly-overpopulating world forces some progressive policies.
True liberalism advocates: individual freedom, weak government, and free markets. Conservatism advocates: moral responsibility, strong government, and protected markets ("neo-cons" have adopted freer market policies since they now often have international businesses). Progressives advocate: social concern, omniscient government, and controlled markets. Socialism advocates: social responsibility, omnipresent government, and collective markets.Source(s): For decades I studied philosophies, cultures, and social institutions. I began that because of confusion resulting from my military experience under the shadow of neo-Marxist anti-military and anti-capitalism indoctrination in the universities. I continue a forty year quest wading through the huge pile of stinking crap a wide variety of bigots dumped on top of truth hiding it from nearly everyone's view. The pile was made by blaming people they don't like while excusing people they do like regardless of where the fault really lies.

You toss the likes of atheist hippies under a bus and what you have are those who by their rhetoric really believe 20 million unemployed is ok, $16 trillion in debt is ok, the longest stagnant GDP performance in history is ok. To these cranium challenged, all of this and more has to be ok because standing up and calling it what it really is would be frowning at their Obama, and they lack the honesty to do that. They offer nothing in any response. They bash your comments even linked by government links and offer no specifics as to why they disagree. How can they, they support the government, then when elements of the government contradict their view, they now rhetorically dispute the government.

As soon as a person thinks up somethihng, some other person will go around doing it.
People are inherently idiots :P (most of them that is)
If they notice the truth isn't as they view something, they will try to make it so.

Gee Wally, you look to know loads in regards to the americans, do you know that nobody ever wins the Afghans over. The occupiers all leave sooner or later. Afghanistan is for the Afghans. Declare victory and get out or proceed to die.

Liberals are the biggest hypocritical group in the world.
"George bush put people into Guantanamo, killed people with drones and waged an illegal war, so he is a war criminal!!!"
"Barack Obama put people into Guantanamo, killed people with drones and waged an illegal war, so he is a respectable world leader deserving of a Nobel peace prize!"
Liberal logic 101, yes, they are that stupid.
