Liberalism leads to:
Dissolving of moral standards.
Marxist ideologies that bring everyone to a standarized poverty.
Disregard for religious tradition.
A "greying" of the people.
Destruction of culture and national identity.
Apathy and appeasement.
Tolerance of degenerative lifestyles.
Stronger centralized governments.
And Totalitarian government regimes (most dictatorships are "Liberal")
Destruction of personal liberties such as:
Right to bare Arms.
Freedom of Religion.
But hey, Jesus was a Marxist alright.
Ruining the nation, the world, all while atop a self righteous pedestal of self glorification and lofty moral opinion.
Strengthening of the moral standards of Peace, Justice, and Personal Freedom.
Socialist ideologies that reduce the power of the Elite, leveling the playing field so that all citizens have a truly equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of their upbringing, race, or gender.
Again, Jesus was Liberal, and if you actually read or listened to Liberal commentators, you'd find most are very spiritual people. Expecting our leaders to live up to the Separation of Church and State outlined in the Constitution does not Atheism create. If you believe that, you believe a lie. Look up Americans United for Separation of Church and State--It's run, primarily, by Christian clergy.
Teaching tolerance of others' religious viewpoints and education to the fact that a certain sect of Christianity is not the only "valid" religion out there.
A little Racist, are we?
Define "Culture". America is a Melting Pot. This concept is based on the fact that our "Culture" is fluid and in a constant state of change. If you think our "Culture" is all white picket fences in suburban WASP-land, always was and always will be, you're gravely mistaken.
Liberals tend to be more politically active than Conservatives. And, if you consider all Diplomacy to be "Appeasement", you're clearly terribly misinformed as to the complexity of world events and socio-political issues
Anti-homosexual as well as racist? Wow, you're on a roll!! Are you really Reverend Phelps?
The biggest fear-mongers in the U.S. right now are leading the Republican Party.
Government is a necessary component of civilization and the only way to guarantee freedom.
No, most are either Fascist, or puppets created and propped up by other nations (such as what the U.S. does around the globe).
Bush has done more to shred the First Amendment than any President in history. He's the one tapping your phone, checking your bank records, reading your mail, opening your emails. You accuse Liberals of destroying Free Speech? We're not the ones using the Justice Department to quash legitimate dissent.
I know of NO Liberals who want to take guns away.

Hmm, that sounds pretty.. but it has nothing to do with what I said lol.
Sorry, I already loose 30% and more of my paycheck to Income and Medicair AND Social Security.. under a Socialist universal Healthcare system it would be 60-70% of my paycheck GONE.
For lower quality care.
Equal poverty for all..
Hmm, not quite. Liberalism = disregard to religion, preference of Science and atheism.
Right, thanks for proving my point? No more Christmas, lets educate people about other holidays even though it has nothing to do with yours!
Not sure how you got that, as I was not referencing race. I was implying a destruction of social and cultural differences to emphisize socialist agendas.. no different then the blue factory uniforms of the Old Bloc states..
I define it as American Culture,
and seeing as the invading culture of Mexicans is simply Mexican as they are not Americans, but Mexicans,
no, I will continue to say Liberals prefer a destruction of culture.
No you just fight over different things.. Lets see, ah yes, the neo-nazi march in DC. Freedom of speech protected, 5 liberals arrested for assaulting the marchers.
i was implying drugs,
and degenerated choice life styles like popping out babies for a living because bleeding heart liberals want to pay them to reproduce their ignorance offspring.
1. It's both parties.
2. The Republicans are Liberal?
That would be incorrect, it is the fast road to totalitarian governments.
Mm.. wrong. Study some history mate.
Remember "conservative" has more to do with social values and personal freedoms,
Liberalism relies on big governments, and a totalitarian government must be big..
To the ultra left is a Stalin or Mao type government,
to the ultra right is Anarchy.
Actually the liberal idea of big governmnet, big brother, and socialist social programs leads to the problems you point out.
By the way again:
Bush is a Liberal.
That was a joke right? Seriously? You ARE JOKING RIGHT?
As I said, Racist. And, you should note that Libertarians, the Far Right, advocate open borders and unrestricted immigration (at least they did when I was one).
First, it's BEAR arms. Second, I know of NO Liberals who want to take guns away. If anything Bush has taught us just why the Second Amendment was written in the first place. But there's some common sense that comes into play here. Why does a private citizen need machineguns and anti-tank weaponry?

From you "Bush has taught us why the Second Amendment was written" comment I assume you are talking about using our 2nd Amendment right to protect ourselves from tyrany. Right there is the answer to why a private citizen needs machine guns and anti-tank weaponry. You answered your own question quite well.
Oh, and just to educate you, since from your "I know of NO liberals who want to take guns away"
it is clear you've never heard of these people, here's just a couple liberals who have stated goals of zero handgun ownership in AMerica (hell, some even want no firearm ownership at all, let alone handguns.)
James Brady, Sarah Brady, Michael Moore, Tom Diaz, Ted Kennedy, Washington D.C. Mayor Fenty, former Congressman from N.Y. Major Owens (who proposed a measure to repeal the 2nd Ammendment), Senator John Chaffe of Rhode Island.
I could continue ad infinitum listing names of liberals who have attacked firearms above and beyond the mere "common sense" gun control measures that, while I refute their constitutionallity to begin with, the general public has shown a willingness to bend over and accept.
