Then by definition. Your not a liberal. The liberals do nothing but grow the federal government and take your rights away. And it seem more and more, so are the republicans. Hell there all going liberal. And no, I did not like bush brain. Or his father.
I'm not so sure dems. and republicans are so far apart as they use to be. They are both a little too far left for me.
Bush brain took away our 4 th amendment, and the dem's are working on our 1st and 2nd, and 13th amendments. None of them are representing what the public wants, and they all need to be kicked out.
The term liberal has come to define those who are far left. They see things as gray and when they agree with it, that thing is right. They often contradict themselves and don't care, even when they have a choice.
BTW, I once called myself a liberal Democrat, then I went to Republican, now I just consider myself conservative and traditional. I will vote for any candidate who is conservative and traditional in thinking, or for the best candidate who fits my values the closest. There are no perfect candidates, but so far the only ones who come close are Republican, so I vote Republican most of the time.
I think most Libertarians would vote for Republicans if they had to chose between Dem or Rep and therefore they are actually enabling the rise of the far left Democrats because they have thinned out the Republican vote. They have every right to do that, but I doubt most realize the unintended consequence of voting for candidates who have NO chance of getting elected.
I think it is odd that the Democrats have gone far left and are winning and the Republicans are going very moderate here lately and are losing. That tells me that the Republicans have disenfranchised many voters and have lost their fringe voters, mainly the Libertarian types and those who are upset because Republicans no longer stand for anything decent or honorable. They have gone the way of the Democrats and how they will say what they think you want to hear without caring what they are saying. I hope we get some conservative candidates running in the next election or two.
