    You have to wonder how many Beck followers are convinced by his fake tears.

    What you so called liberals and progressives don't seem to understand is that no one is saying we should turn the clock back and live in the past.

    The point is that we should cultivate and encourage attitudes that we have abandoned. And before one of you libbies accuses me of wanting to turn back time to slavery, let me stop you right there. I, being a true classical liberal believe in liberty for all and that includes economic liberty as well as civil liberty.

    Can you not fathom living in today's society with all of our modern comforts and technologies while still holding the idea that government has become too big, too expensive and too intrusive?

    Can you not have faith in your fellow citizens that would allow you to believe they can make their own choices with no help from government?

    Can you not think that many of us neither need nor want the government micromanaging every aspect of our lives?

    Can you not believe that if we all could have government minimally involved in our lives that we would all be better off?

    But this thread is typical of the dimocat/progressive tendency to reduce an argument to the ridiculous. It seems dimocrats and progressives cannot envision their or anyone else's life unless the heavy hand of government is inextricably bound to all aspects of daily life.

    Thing is if you are under 80 years of age you never lived in such an America as an adult, the New Deal came about in the 1930's (thankfully),I would not want to be a member of the U.S. working class back in the days of the robber barons. Back in those old days the conservatives pine for we had a military draft(government intrusion in our lives) communist witch hunts(government intrusion) These good old days conservatives seek never existed.
