And see, everything I've listed above are things that Liberals think are fine.

Boy, I sure wish I could live in a world where all the complexities of politics, economics and society can be summed up into such a simple phrase: "Blame Obama."
Alas, I do not.
I do appreciate your one line post, though. Gives us so many things to constructively discuss.

95% of blacks voted for Obama... because they agreed with his politics? That's a rather high number don't you think?
Who are the people trying to push SOPA? Liberals
who are the people pushing racial division in this country? Liberals
American can't find jobs but who are the people trying to pass immigration reform? Liberals.
Oh sweet raptor baby Jesus you can smell the liberal propaganda off this one a mile away.

I'm really interested in this liberals hate individualism and want conformity line. Where is this coming from?
From my experience this really seems like bizarro world.
Conservatives have been attacking us "liberal hippies" who reject social norms forever. You guys cling on to social norms way more than us. It's not even close.
You guys are against gays for not being "normal," You guys say they are going to ruin your "normal" society by not conforming to heterosexuality. It's always conservatives who feel under attack from other cultures like "talk English or get out" "MUSLIMS!" "Chinese are taking over". So many of you would only be happy with absolute assimilation. Conservatism keeps the war on drugs alive. Who is trying to make the bible the law of the land? It's certainly not liberals. Is there anything less individualistic than establishing a religion as the law of the land? I could keep going on so many issues.
Conservatives talk a big game on small government, but that really only applies to keeping government out of YOUR life, you don't care if they are in mine though. If I want to marry a man or get an abortion, or do drugs, all that talk goes out the window. Some conservatives want to ban condoms. You don't want government taking your guns, you just want them dictating peoples sex lives.
Please explain, what are liberals really doing that ends individualism?

Liberalism is by definition conformist. It's certainly sold as the opposite, but it's not in reality. Liberalism is so very tolerant that it becomes diabolically intolerant of anyone not speaking the new "one" language and new "one" code of morality, do what thou Wilst. Liberalism has pleasure as its highest truth, and as long as it can indoctrinate the masses to love pleasure, it can control them by simply threatening that somebody (I.e. a conservative) will come along to take away that pleasure. It can say "they will prevent you from murdering your unborn babies!" and the crowds stand up and applaud because, by golly, they can continue to uphold sex as a greater good than the life of innocents without ever realising what they are actually doing. Liberals fight against God-given laws yet can't even fathom that the laws they've been given, and come to love, are from the occult. Go figure that those who fight Christ in these last days of the end of the age don't even know that they are doing it. But I will add, all of this applies to many conservatives as well.
Ummm....your really quite sure about that?.....Really? Now, I've done alot of study/practice in meditation techniques and you might just be surprised that it is possible to access and utilyze BOTH hemispheres at the same time...It's really an astounding/unifying experience...you should give it a try sometime......

This is exactly why I am an Independent with some libertarian leanings
Don't be so sure of yourself; no offense intended, but no individual: I repeat, NO INDIVIDUAL, can use both sides of their brain simultaneously.

Again the fact of seeking why something is wrong/bad/irrelevant is a trait of the conservative mind. The liberal mind would tend towards considering the possiblities while acknowledging the limitations of the study.
This is complete BS.
Provide your data suggesting the conclusion you have made about the two is valid.
Especially your definition of the liberal mind. I have read studies indicating some validity towards your view of conservative mind but as to your concept of the liberal mind . . . a complete fabrication.
The definition you give better suits scientific pursuit rather than liberal. There is a strong current of conservatism among the scientific community in regards to towing the line that has been established and fighting new interpretations of material phenomenon and their source.
