Like I said, we hunt them lib-rails down like the commie scum they are, rip their balls off with plastic forks and feed 'em to 'em, then we lynch 'em. Then we nuke the f'ing Japs a couple more times just to be sure; while we're there we'll even it up with the slopes in Ko-ree-er an The Nam. How 'bout them sand-pounders too... they need more glass in them deserts don't they? As for the Injuns, we done took care of them back when a man was a man and Sam Colt did the talkin.

When we're done, THEN we KILL WHITEY!!!

I'd call myself liberal. But I don't fit your description very well, so I think one of us isn't using the term right?

I'm sure your just stereotyping based on your own experiences, fair enough. I really wish people would stop using liberal and conservative in such twisted ways though. Like the neo-cons they don't seem that conservative, except maybe socially.

Anyway, I'd just like to point out I consider myself liberal but I don't think your responsible for any of those things. Especially things that happened when you weren't even alive.

This is a bit of what I do think and why I consider myself liberal:
1. I think indian gambling isn't fair, I think gambling should either be legal for everyone or no one (state wise)
2. I believe we should find a way to have a universal health care system that works (or at least try!), in my mind it would be one that cut the insurance companies out completely, but I'm open to anything that would work well.
3. I think capital gains and dividends should be taxed at the same income rate as a persons salary.
4. Legalize drugs (based on age) and tax them, take the tax money and use it to pay for rehab programs, public awareness, etc.
5. Abortion, I'm against making it illegal, if we're going to focus on anything in that area I think we should make smoking and drinking illegal while pregnant (or at least focus on that first)
6. Guns - while most people think liberals are against guns that sort of goes against the definition and it's stereotyping, I would say it's maybe more correct to say the democratic party is against guns. I am for guns, I own a gun.


Just thought I'd try and show what I believe and what I think being liberal means.

Cheers - feel free to resume the pitch forking!

Liberals have a long history of involving us in wars (WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea) and account for 90% of the dead US troops in foreign wars. So their pacifism claims are pure BS. Owning guns is not a liberal problem, it's a Liberal problem. The south was dominated by the Democrats for a Century and used guns liberally against blacks. Being young you have probably been brainwashed into believing that it was Democrats who brought about the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60's. It was quite the opposite.

There's the rub. Political Liberals are not liberal at all, but believe in using govt to punish everyone who disagrees with them. Since you believe in imprisoning women who maybe have a beer once in a while if they are pregnant you definitely are in the running to be a liberal. Especially if you believe the fiction that the govt can provide free healthcare (or free anything) to everyone.

Thanks for pretending to know what I believe. I never said ANYTHING about imprisoning women for any reason. Yes being liberal on the subject of drinking while pregnant would mean leaving it alone, let them do what they will. I'm not sure where I stand as far as making it illegal, I'd say leave it my point was more than if they trying to do thinking about making abortion legal I think they should try and do something about chain smoking mothers first. It was just on my mind since I read about Britan's youngest mother - 11, chain smoking.

Obviously the government can't provide anything truly for free it all comes from taxes, etc. But I think we could still and should provide health care for everyone besides just the hospitals. Currently I believe current government spending per person on health care is more than many countries who have universal health care.

As far as pacifism claims I'm not really sure what your talking about. Being a pacifist and a liberal are two seperate things neither inclusive or exclusive. I never claimed to be a pacifist, though I was against the war I wouldn't call myself a pacifist.

You say you want it against the law for women to drink or smoke if they are pregnant. Therefore there must be some sort of penalty for breaking that law. In our society refusal to follow laws ends you up in jail. It's not rocket science. You can't have it both ways. That's why I use the grandmother test to measure laws. Is it worth locking your grandmother up in jail (or worse be declared incompetent and locked up in a mental ward)if she refuses to obey some law?

Jail (or worse), brute force, is ultimately the only way the govt has to enforce compliance. This is a basic libertarian viewpoint.

What gives anyone the right to make such judgments? Are you willing to undergo the same punishment you wish for others? Does a law really benefit society and is the benefit enough to outweigh the loss of freedom and wealth to individuals? Does one person really have the right to take someone else's money for some program that can't be proved to work or has even been proved destructive? I assure you I consider these things very thoroughly before I support govt action. I have no superior moral right to claim ownership of the fruits of someone else's labors. We've spent about 1/2 million dollars for every Katrina victim so far. Is that enough? Or is it just more money down the tube? All that money is extorted by force.

We can't solve every problem caused by personal irresponsibility and as our current election is showing the most crooked people in our society are those we're tasking to run it. I guarantee you when these clowns are done with healthcare it will suck for everybody. Years of observing the 'liberals' and 'conservatives' in action has driven me completely away for both failed philosophies.

There is an alternative - fines. I think the government is much more fond of fines anyway If anything that's what I was thinking. If they could afford to smoke they could pay the fines, if they don't you could garner their wages or something, don't go all the way to jail.

However those are great questions to ask when making laws, I really just brought up the whole smoking while pregnant thing as a counter point to pro-life laws.

Anyway great questions. I think we have way too many laws.

That represents the worst possible reason for creating a law and a typical Liberal mind set. Your aim is not to protect the health of an unborn child, or the health of the pregnant women for that matter, it is merely an excuse for a money grab.

If you want to create a law there has to be some justification for it. In this case it would be to counter the proven health impacts of smoking and drinking during pregnancy. An appropriate incentive would be education and assistance in quiting, with community service as the punishment for breaking the law.

Your version is "we don't care if you do it, we'll just use it as an excuse to take some money off you".....In essence the whole point of is to take money off someone, funnily enough, it is typically low education, low income people who are most likely to exhibit this behavior in the first place and they would be the least able to suffer loss of any income.

Basically you extort and feed off the very people you as a liberal claim to represent.

Do continue please.............

And if you don't pay the fines? It's still jail. It all hinges on the fear of incarceration. Or worse. You pay so you don't spend a few weeks months or years getting raped and shivved by Bubba. It's still the threat of violence to enforce laws no matter how they try to sugar coat it.

BTW. Isn't a woman's body her own business? Here we see the illogic inherent in Liberalism. A woman is to be punished if she drinks or smokes while pregnant. But it's fine for her to kill the baby... no one can tell her what to do with her body. What if she decides to sell sex? Isn't that her own decision? Why then can't she drink or smoke? My head begins to spin.
