I have had more than my fair share of debates with you.. and every one of them has been a pleasure. While not always on the same side of the coin; the
mutual respect is consistently apparent.
As far as being liberal... Well, I dont know what the heck I am.. I see conservatively(traditional conservative; not neo-conservatism) on some issues
like; small govt. But then I see some things on a more liberal approach like; gay marraige. And On a myraid of other issues I likewise fall on both
sides of the coin.
I take each and every issue on its own and make my decisions accordingly... I cant stand either party at this point(going on 15 years now).
I really find myself more of a constitutionalist than anything else(especially given that I feel that both parties are aginst the constitution; as it
restricts their power, IMO).

As for the people that label Bush a war criminal some of them may be letting there emotions over ride logic it happens to the best of us at some
Ill raise my hand on this one...guilty as charged.... As much as I try to remain objective; I too become emotionally over zealous against
"Bush"(which to me is just the face of the many in his cabal of felons)...ooops did it again..lmao.
Buyt seriously I do get alittle emotional sometimes about this stuff. I just cannot stand anyone or anything that tries to usurp our constitution...
And you must admit with over 750 signing statements it does raise those questions. Especially with over 150 constitutional challenges..
I dont want to get into a debate about Bush on this thread as this is not the topic... I just though I would elaborate on xpert11's point. I also
added one explanation as to why my emotion gets affected.
I dont personally know any "conservatives" or "liberals'... most of the people I know are like me in that they judge each and every topic by and
on its own merit.. not according to what the parties dictate to the masses. Besides Who the hell really knows what defines these two catagories
anymore.. they seem to be alot different then back in the eightees.
But regardless of which side you choose(if you choose a "side") then you should be proud of it... But one must beware when doing so as to not end up
like a parrot. One cannot let thier individual opinions be overrun by said party.
But I have rambled on long enough...
thank you for your time,
