Realists have a firm grip on reality and can see things for what they are, not what they are told they are. Realists have their own views and do not fall victim to propaganda, misconception, or titles!
1. There is the Pessimist who believes the glass is half empty!

2. There is the Optimist who believes the glass is half full!

3. Then there is the Realist who knows it is just half a fucking glass!

Realists are the only people in the world that truly understand the earth and what needs to be done to make it better. They do not fear the majority that will undoubtedly be apposed to any action politically that would work

Right-wingers and Left-wingers may call a realist a Fascist but this is not true, a Realist purely understand that certain measures must be taken to prevent problems from occurs, usually going to the source. A realist will take inspiration from the working of nature.

Realist are not blurred by politics they are fed daily.
My realist statement of the day is:
"How do animals teach their young to stop doing something that is wrong? They strike/bite them when they do that certain thing...the young then understands the consequence of this action and does not do it. So making corporal punishment in schools filled with many potential irritations illegal was ridiculous, schools aren't failing the children our government is not disciplining children and they are growing into undisciplined adults. (Criminals)

A person who's personal and political views transcend the petty right-wing left-wing mentality and understands how things really work in the world.
Someone who acknowledges that humans are terrible by nature and that the only cure for everything is one of the population-destroying meteors that passes between the Earth and Moon twice a month.

Realists believe that reality is completely ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, linguistic practices, beliefs and our perception.

Those who profess realism, also believe that truth consists in a belief's correspondence to reality. We may speak of realism with respect to other minds, the past, the future, universals, mathematical entities, moral categories, the material world, or even thought.

Realists further believe that whatever we believe now is only an approximation of reality and that every new observation brings us closer to understanding reality. Realists also believe that a common understanding of reality brings peace and is the basis for morality.
Realists are members of The Realist Society of Canada and read the Conscientia.

A realist (by definition) is a person completey unbiased. Something we should all stride for. There are people that are so biased that literaly nothing can sway there way of thinking. If they think the sky is green god himself couldn't make them think any differently. Unfortunately nobody on earth is a full realist because we all have some level of bias. But we should always stride to be as close to reality as possible.
A realist see things as they are with zero bias and deal with the situation as is.
Some people see a glass half emty or half full, a realist sees a glass that has a milk level perfectly between the top of the glass to the bottom.

Someone who knows that the SHTF is enevitable although it is unknown when this is going to take place. Realists can often be identified by their gear, it's usually simple yet effective. Examples of realist gear are MRE's, practical firearms, tents, lanterns, Etc.
Liberal Dumbass: Gee Mr. Realist why do you need guns? The government can take care of you. Plus guns are dangerous and only crazies have guns.

Rupert the Realist: Because it's impractical to keep a cop in my pocket and people like you drive me crazy. Now get off my porch before you learn the reality... OF CASTLE DOCTRINE!
