If you notice...only the white people are carrying American flags. I bet they are liberals!


... The civil rights act of 1964 passed because the huge majority of Republicans voted for it while a majority of Democrats did not.

... I guess the Republicans were considered the liberals back then. Indeed, the vast majority of African Americans were Republican.

... Then came the plantation policies of the Dems... and look at American inner cities today.

... But the white dudes holding the flags, certianly liberal for their time, party irrelevant.

...


Hilarious. I didn't get the "plantation policies" reference though. Everything else was a genius parody.


... For your reference.

That was great- I really liked this as the primary point: "The welfare system enslaves the poor on a subsidized, legal plantation"

You'd literally have to be a Nazi to consider that a valid comparison.

I feel honored to be in this thread. As for liberals being evil, not really. Liberals are people whooo:

A Dictionary wrote:1. favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs.
2.
( often initial capital letter ) noting or pertaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform.
3.
of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism.
4.
favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
5.
favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression: a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers.
6.
of or pertaining to representational forms of government rather than aristocracies and monarchies.
7.
free from prejudice or bigotry; tolerant: a liberal attitude toward foreigners.
8.
open-minded or tolerant, especially free of or not bound by traditional or conventional ideas, values, etc.
9.
characterized by generosity and willingness to give in large amounts: a liberal donor.
10.
given freely or abundantly; generous: a liberal donation.
11.
not strict or rigorous; free; not literal: a liberal interpretation of a rule.
12.
of, pertaining to, or based on the liberal arts.
13.
of, pertaining to, or befitting a freeman.


That's it to it's definiton. Jay, I think that you're just considering the radical democrats. Not every Demo is a Liberal, just like not every Republican is a conservative (and vice versa). They carry a high correlation I imagine, but I don't think it's fair to people like me (liberal) and other to just group us in with a bunch of extreme lawmakers (i.e, the Happy Meal Toy problem). I define myself as a liberal because I'm really open-minded and support equality yada yada yada that whole thing, not because I'm out to control people's lives or anything silly like that.

Godwin's law, ftw.

As to things liberalism lead to:
Equal Voting rights
Fair worker compensation
basically general fairness

Things the modern term "liberal" leads to:
Frivolous law suits
Legally mandated discrimination against majorities
socialist policies, such as the welfare state
mass political corruption


that's about it.

It's not what it is, it's what it has become. Liberal used to be a good term but it has morphed into something sinister, something that small children all over the world run from. (and many sane adults)

Liberalism: The haunting fear someone, somewhere, can help themselves.

I personally view it as people who want all kinds of crazy "rights" all the while trying their best to limit the rights of others. ie. San Francisco has BANNED Happy Meal toys in their city! (It might cause kids to eat the food and GAIN WEIGHT!) So of course the libs came up with a solution.... :roll:


With that definition and example, I agree that to a certain extent that some people of a "liberal orientation" can be extreme (just like neo-cons!).

So, is jay mistaking Liberalism for liberal extremists? Has radical liberalism become the norm? ...?

The philosopher. He likes to describe things as A and B. For example, his famous "A is A". Or, "If A can be said of B, then A is of the category B." (On classification, I think that was subject 5 or 6).

You've just described the Republican Party, Jay. In fact, not only that, you have just described the Religious Right sector of the Republican Party.

Ah, you have a problem with affirmative action - I see - While it's not a perfect system, you can not call it legally mandated discrimination against majorities.

Oh, the whole world hates you, whitey? It's such a hard, tough world for the cracker, isn't it?
