    The Iraq War is about as liberal of a venture as the US has done in its history, the only people who supported that war as it went on would be identified as "right conservatives."

    Defining marriage as between a woman and man and enforcing that in gov't policy and keeping marijuana illegal are both strong stances of President Obama, a man who's only outspoken support seemingly comes from "left liberals."



    I'm no genius, but these seems like sort of common sense things to me, why can't others figure this out?

    Because their politicians of choice dont let them figure it out on their own.

    Politicians don't control free will.

    I think it more has to do with the image the 2 things entail. Democrats prolly feel their party is smarter and more high brow, so they want that image. Republicans prolly feel their party is more moral and tougher, so they want that image.

    Most murkins aren't smart enough to use free will or vote.
    They let loons like Hannutsy and Limbaloney, or George Loony and Carlos Estaves( Charlie Sheen) do their thinking and voting for them.
    That's how merica lost it's "A" and became the first fourth world nation........ now known as murkastan.

    If God created trees, shouldn't it be liberals calling conserve-ative Christians 'tree huggers'?

    Yes, I do.

    Labeling people is a good way of turning off your brain so that you don't have to listen to them.

    The vast majority of people who claim to be liberal or democrat are also christian but I get what you're saying.

    got no problems at all with terms. As used to paint the complexity of an individual or group's politics, they are problematic.
