I am a 'Liberal,' as the term goes in the USA.
I believe it is my right to be friends with who I want, regardless of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, income bracket, or
I believe it is my right to have access to information from sources free of political pressure from Governments and Corporate powers..
I believe it is my DUTY, as a Patriot, to question the Government of the United Kingdom, and its BLATANTLY unsavoury dealings around the world. And
asking questions gets you labelled a Liberal these days, so thats me.
I am pro choice regarding abortion. I feel that if the baby cannot be looked after properly, or the mother or the baby will suffer physically or
mentally, or if the child is the product of things such as rape, then it is perfectly within the mothers right to choose.
I believe in ACCOUNTABILITY. This goes for Politicians, Corporations, Civil Servants, EVERYONE. Conservatives in the US do not seem to believe in
this, and neither do the centre-right PseudoSocialists of the UK's New Labour, and they defend their corrupt leaders to the hilt. This in spite of
blatant lies and corruption.
I believe Religion has no place in Politics. We all know what happened when two leaders imagined their 'God' told them to start a war...
I believe Corporatism has no place in Politics. We all know what happened when a bunch of tycoons pocketed key politicians in the US and UK...
I believe in Science. I believe that Science can be a better aid to us in key issues such as Global Warming than just simply taxing people. I believe
that the BILLIONS that Governments and Corporations spend in setting up a new oil field for example, could present us a realistic cleaner energy tech
in a pretty sharpish fashion, or even, for starters, cleaner versions of what we have now. On this front, I would encourage fellow 'Liberals' to go
and see my good friend, Loremo, at www.loremo.com...
, and also, see Loremo's stats at www.loremo.com...
. I also
believe that Stem Cell Therapy is going to improve many lives, an example being it will help improve sight to those with sight difficulties, and maybe
even give sight to those who are blind.
I have compassion, something I find most Conservatives lack. The Pro Life Crowd, I feel, are hypocrites, and I bet most, if not all, would change
their opinions were they placed in the situation that many women who visit Abortion Clinics face. The Pro War Crowd, I feel, are hypocrites, and I bet
most, if not all, would feel anger and resentment towards a foreign nation that came to their country and bombed their cities and towns, and harmed
their children through indiscriminate use of force, destroyed their nation's infratructure, let loose many hundreds of terrorists and criminals into
the streets, and placed a meaningless, impotent puppet government in power. The Anti-Poor, Anti Social Support Crowd, I feel, are hypocrites, and I
bet that they would want help from their government and fellow citizens if their luck was down due to no fault of their own.
I believe in freedom of religion. Faith is a spiritual thing, if you don't feel the touch of whatever God is the hottest one to follow this century,
then you don't feel it. To say you do when you don't is just you lying to yourself.
Lastly, I believe in being allowed to determine my own destiny, being allowed to aim for the goals I want to aim for, as long as they are socially
And that's me, as a Liberal.
