    Thought exercise #2 Which is which?

    There are two exclusions to make this interesting. All answers must be true or false.

    You are in a chat room talking to a conservative and a liberal. You are allowed only one question to figure out which is which. The question must be about 'love' (Exclusion marriage). What is your question?

    You are in a chat room talking to a conservative and a liberal, the liberal voted for Obama, the conservative McCain. Same task as above, but this time the question must be about 'history' (exclusion American presidents). What is your question?

    You are in a chat talking to a conservative, a libertarian and a liberal. Again you are allowed one question about 'freedom' to figure out each. What is your question?

    Optional answer: If we added a socialist would the question work too?

    Please answer before engaging in the usual negative feedback. If your question is already asked, try another? Easy?

    1. Which do you love more "God & Country" or "weed"?
    2. Do you think Clinton should have been impeached?
    3. Would you reduce the number of Federal Departments or increase them, if reduce, name them? (the libertarian would cut more than the conservative)

    LOL - yes, thanks and loved your replies. See if anyone else answers. And do you think these things say anything about what we believe and why. And who answered T and who F. Guess we could figure it out which again says something about what we believe.

    question #1: You love visiting San Francisco more than Fort Lauterdale, true or false?

    question #2: You found the 1960s a good time, true or false?

    question #3: The Constitution is protecting your freedom more today than in the past, true or false?

    love - (T or F) (que - do you think?) People like Bill Ayers or Saul Alinski love America as much as any flag-waver or military member?

    history - (T or F) (que - do you think?) Whitaker Chambers framed Alger Hiss as a communist spy?

    freedom - (T or F) (que - do you think?) You can advance the cause of freedom in a country like Iraq by invading it and killing its people?

    These questions probably delineate differences between Ls and Cs much more than between many Ds and Rs, many of either party are not much involved in ideology or philosophy. I know ardent Ds who would probably surprise a Liberal with their answers of at least two of these propositions?
