A liberal is someone who doesn’t tell his kid “what was good enough for me is good enough for you.”
Liberals wrote the second amendment, along with the other original nine. To liberals, being a British subject without the advantages granted to those on the home island wasn’t good enough, so they fixed the problem . . .
The people who seek to roll back our liberties – liberties as in ACLU, as in liberal – are not liberals. They are statists.
To equate the two is the same as equating imply and infer, which you likely do. It’s like equating heard and said.
I’m about done with this blog. I’m a centrist, and dislike the bashing of same. Centrists are the only ones who actually DO anything in government, rather than simply voting the party line. For most blokes, you might as well just call roll.
Not every gunnie is a conservative, long live the status quo, let’s limit government except in the bedroom ultra-rightist.
Lots of us believe in liberty. Not in the Patriot Act and “free speech zones” of your recently ousted “God in the White House.”
How did I get here? I was born here, in California in the peace and love sixties. Did you ever have some hic in a pickup threaten you with an axe because of the length of your hair? I did, when was eight. That was in ’70.
I picked up a gun pretty darned early, believe you me. But I never sided with Rush Limbaugh, Sam Yorty, Dr. Laura or Sarah Palin.
Labels are divisive. We as a community need to not quibble about who hates the I idea of same-sex marriage or who approves of Social Security, while acknowledging that it’s in need of repair.
So cram the damned labels. The truth about guns does not reflect the truth about the people of the gun and while I do believe your work to be vitally important, I want no part of your approach to that work.
