    When a conservative decides to buy a hybrid car he goes and buys one.
    When a liberal decides to buy a hybrid car he wants everyone to buy one.

    When a conservative decides to stop eating meat he stops eating meat.
    When a liberal decides to stop eating meat he wants everyone to stop eating meat.

    When a conservative decides to donate hard earned money to a worthy cause he donates to a worthy cause.
    When a liberal decides to give to a worthy cause he wants everyone to give to a worthy cause.

    Wanting others to do the things that you do is normal and fine but liberals go one step further.
    They get government to force you to do the things they do and that’s what makes them dangerous.

    When a liberal is against gay marriage, they don't marry a gay guy.
    When a conservative is against gay marriage, they bus Mormons in from Utah to protest and pass laws against it.

    When a liberal believes that Evolution is wrong, they home school.
    When a conservative believes Evolution is wrong, they petition their school boards to "teach the controversy"

    This isn't a conservative/liberal thing. This is a human thing. For whatever reason, human beings have always had a desire to make decisions for the greater good - even if other don't agree. I could go on and on with all the things that conservatives want "for the good of everyone" that I don't agree with. Take off your partisan blinders, and realize that EVERYONE is looking to control your life - not just liberals.

    Doctor,
    With all due respect you have it backasswards. When a liberal is in favor of gay marriage they want everyone to be in favor of gay marriage and they will go to the big daddy government to get it done, and that was my main point. When a liberal loses at the ballot box they run to the courts to get their way. I think the use of our court system to override the wishes of the American people is wrong and should almost never be done and I see liberals willing to do this on every issue that pops up.
    That was my only point.
    maybe you should remove the partisan glasses.

    No, my friend - it doesn't work that way. No liberals are trying to force you to marry a gay man. Liberals wouldn't be going to "big daddy government" to get it done if it wasn't already made illegal by conservatives looking out for everyone's "family values".

    If what you were saying is right, why did Bush pass the "Defense of Marriage Act"? Isn't that "going to big daddy government"?

    Anyway, my goal was not to get all hung up on one single issue - there are plenty of others. Let's look at a few others.

    Do you see many liberals trying to force people to recite prayers in school?
    Do you see many liberals trying to force teachers to teach "the controversy"?

    I've been watching liberals push God out of schools my whole life. I do not see liberals forcing people to "recite prayer in school" but I don't see conservative trying to force it either. Maybe you should re-examine your boogeymen.

    What about all the boogeymen you posted in your OP?

    Who's forcing you to be a vegetarian?
    Who's forcing you to buy a hybrid car?

    The biggest difference is that Conservatives want to conserve the status quo, whereas lefties will try and change something if they think it needs changing (and sometimes even if it doesn't)
