    What it takes to be a Liberal...

    It appears that to be a Liberal a thinking person will qualify in at least one of the categories in the list:

    1. The person is "power hungry" and seeks to rule over others.
    2. The person covets other's belongings.
    3. The person is selfish.
    4. The person is a hypocrite.

    Has anyone found this not to be the case?

    Looks like you're defining a "conservative" .
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    I also notice that the liberals resort to name calling rather that just sticking with the facts. This also leads to the hypocrisy (#4) in that it was the liberals that began the phrase "end the politics of personal destruction" - yet we see how they resort to personal destruction when they cannot defend their views with logic and facts...

    Your #2 is a good demonstration of #2. The very term "Big Business" has a negative connotation. Why? Because "Big Business" is accused of having lots of money and not giving it to them. That desire to own the money which belongs to "Big Business" is called coveting - liberals are coveting "Big Business'" money. And the coveting of the money that doesn't belong to them leads to anger and hatred against "Big Business". Ironically it is anger and hatred which opposes peace and love - another hypocrisy of liberals wherein they are for 'world peace' and everyone loving everyone while being angry at "Big Business" because of the coveting. Good job in pointing out how easily liberals start falling just by coveting the money of someone else.

    Not in particular - just trying to see if there is a liberal who doesn't fall into at least one of those categories...

    O K, how about this:

    #5 A liberal is someone that thinks society (that is people in general) is not smart or wise enough to take care of themselves; so someone should (or a law needs to be passed) to take care of them and make decisions for them. And oh, BTW that someone should be me...

    My opinion: Liberals are about control (controlling others), at the same time their lives are a mess. The are also not about taking responsibility for themselves...

    Coveting means wanting something that someone else has. Not willfully sharing is called selfishness.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    Don't liberals want the money that "Big Business" has? Aren't they trying to pass a Windfall tax to get some of the money? Aren't they cursing "Big Business" for failing to give that money to them in the form of pay raises, bonuses, or taxes?

    In clarification, I was referring to 'sharing their money with everyone' as 'sharing it with liberals who profess to represent everyone'. Those that are affiliated with the AFLCIO is an example. In rereading how I phrased it I see where you are coming from... I'll go back and clarify it.

    more like a neo(nazi)conservative, as said earlier.

    This defines all groups.








    The are also not about taking responsibility for themselves...

    This I agree with, but again represents all groups(Bush finally admitted wrong)
