1. Not true but liberals care much more about how others think of us rather than doing what is needed. I seriously doubt a Liberal President would
have got us involved in Desert Storm. Think about it.
2. Recent Liberal Presidents do have a clear record of reducing our military's effectiveness and budgets. Go look.
3. They definitely do more to control enterprises than Conservatives. The World in general thinks Democrats are more trade protectionist than
Republicans. In that case Liberals get lumped with Democrats.
4. I don't think they hate our Troops. I do however think that they don't support their efforts once we as a nation, have committed our Troops in
harm's way. They are too fickle for me and most of the military.
5. Most Liberal leaders think that they know what is best for the public, to me that smacks of elitism, but same can be said for both parties.
6. I guess I would clarify that to be "Traditional Family" values. And Liberal are definitely the majority of the Pro abortion side, which is
decidedly Un-Family Friendly, if you get my drift.
7. Your statement afterward has little to do with the whole tax issue. Both parties raise taxes, it's a rather moot point. It does seem Conservatives
want to limit taxes where Liberals just want to Tax "the right people".
8. Take Late Term Abortions and Abortion in general, you can't be for them and claim to be a moral person.
In its second, normative and universal sense, morality refers to an ideal code of
conduct, one which would be espoused in preference to alternatives by all rational people, under specified conditions.
9. Take the Joe the Plumber line "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that
they've got a chance at success, too". Obama's talk of "spreading the wealth around" doesn't make me think of personal responsibility.
10. It's not that Liberals are wimps. They just tend to not be steadfast when there are problems or setbacks. The Recent Iraq war is a case in point.
Liberals voted for it, but once things got tough, they wanted to just bail, regardless of the ramifications. Look at the Vote for Desert Storm, it
wasn't nearly as unanimous as you would think (52-47 in Senate and 250 -183 in the House). It will be very rare for the Liberal to support an Armed
Classical Liberalism is much different from Modern Liberalism in the U.S., on that much I agree. They are worlds apart, save the name.
