hey i'm a liberal and i don't consider it a dirty word....conservatives can call me a liberal all they want and try to make it sound as bad as possible and i will yes, "yep, i'm a liberal...proud too." i think conservatives are kinda cute in their own narrow minded ways
views: pro environment, pro space, pro choice (because i respect and love my mother, my wife and my daughters, i am pro choice....i respect them enough to know that they will make decisions in their lives based on their beliefs and values and situation...and i love them enough to stand by them no matter what they decide), pro marriage for all (same sex and non-same sex....marriage between myself and my wife has been great...why would i deny that to others....or as my mother told me when i was a young man, "Love is so hard to find in this world, never close your mind to love no matter where you find it"...of course, she may have thought i was gay and was trying to let me know that she would be ok with that
anti--death penalty....a person is allowed to be insane, filled with rage, filled with jealiousy, a person is allowed to make mistakes, to seek revenge, to hate....society should be better than that....society should be better and held to a higher standard than the individual...society should never be vengeful or hate...we can not say it is wrong to kill and then kill...just my view..
i believe people have a responsiblity for their actions, i believe we should be more courtious as a society (hell, i don't want respect from strangers, they don't know me enough to respect me, i would just love people to be more kind), i don't believe in God, but have absolutely no problem with people who do...if God makes them stronger, better and happier, Great....i believe in social services (my mother went on welfare for 3 years when i was a kid....she went back to college, got her teaching degree and taught learning disabled middle school and high school childern for over 22 years before retiring....a great investment for the government...because of her, i work with children with heart disease and my brother works with mentally disabled adults)....i beleive in marriage and freedom of the press and that we should give more than we take....i believe in loving your friends and that college should be free...so should technical training, because not everyone should go to college (some people don't like school), i don't want to tell people what to think and believe, nor how to live their lives....and i don't want them telling me what to think or believe or how to live my life (though i don't mind heated and lively discussions about valves and such from time to time)...we can all learn from each other and grow as a person and as a society and as a world...heck, i might even learn something from a conservative someday (just haven't yet in my 40 plus years :eek: )....g
should be some fun responses to this
