It dosen't necessarily make him conservative, just shows that he is awake enough to realize what must be done

Or are we still reviving the stereotype that liberals are flowery, druggy, anarchist sissies?

MY Liberal friends BEFORE you answer that question DO NOT project your self image onto Bono. Just becuz you THINK Bono should think or act exactly like you should think/act..ect.

the liberals here...ok...well, i don't think it's faked and i'm a "liberal" here. so, that's one that's not falling into your stereotype. remember when fym was taken away? remember why it was taken away? from people saying such inane things.

i don't think bono should act and or think like me. in fact, i'm pretty pleased that he, as a 40 some year old man with a wife and children isn't going around acting like an 18 year old female.

Point taken Lilly, well said
You are a person first- who is not afraid of diversity as Bono is not afraid..
I dont think it was inane
or
mean
Only an observation having witnessed live performances of Bono for 20 yrs.

Peace-

As long as you don't credit any quote of value to Barbara Wah-wah of ABC News, I will let everything else slide.

It's okay. You made a good point anyway. When voting, no matter what the party line, people should vote for who they honestly feel will be the best choice for president, who they truly believe will do the best job in office.

Anywho, yeah, that's okay about your reaction-I've been known to come across rather strongly when I'm talking to people about certain issues in the past myself, so....

I don't think Bono has become more conservative. I read an interview somewhere (sorry I can't remember exactly where) in which he said he is actually MORE angry now at the injustice in the world than he was when he was younger. I think the difference is he has learned that in order to get anything useful accomplished you have to work with those who have the power to change things, even if you don't agree with them politically. I think it shows a lot of maturity on his part. I think a lot of politicians, both on the left and the right, could learn a lesson from him.

I think that doesnt mean that he likes Conseratives less.
I think when he was younger..he might of said- "Its all the Conseratives fault" Just a blanket statement.
He doesnt say that NOW He used to though
Sure he's angry at the injustices in the world:idea:
Arent we all?
Now that he has developed friendship w some Republicans..genuine frienships- I see a different Bono from say 1983-1985.:idea:

And yes I do agree , polictians can learn alot from our friend.

It was my understanding that what Bono does isn't influenced by his need to lead a political career.....His life is dedicated to simply making the world a better place to live. I see him as a leader, not a follower (liberal or conservative.)

He has the same goal that I set for myself in the 80's

See
20 years ago he couldnt stomach the thought.
Now I think he has changed a bit in regards to being more openminded and unafraid of diff polictal philosophies- as WE ALL should be
