    Freak of Nature

    Caught "Meet the Press" this morning. Listened to Senator Lieberman. A Liberal most assuredly NOT in favor of cowardice. Must be a freak of nature.
    The views and opinions posted here are my own. They do not reflect the corporate policies of my employer and will most likely get me fired at some point.

    Could either of you explain those comments? I'm just curious to your though process here. Thanks!
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    The American Revolution was an extremely Liberal Idea . Free Men ruled by nobody was and is a Liberal Idea.

    I am a member of this site, too.

    It was a simple question. Feel free to not answer.

    One could argue conversely that The American Revolution was the result of extremely liberal ideas about how much taxation and burden the English Colonies in America should have had to bear.

    I do see legitimacy in acmanko's premise though, when it is used in the context of being a socially progressive reform.

    You would see a pattern.

    My thought process: Years ago I was a registered, voting Democrat. As the years passed, I began to notice patterns of retreat and entitlement I was not at all comfortable supporting.

    Then the Reagan Administration slapped us all. Hard. Some of us learned from that ass-whipping. The concept of seeking out solutions was like a breath of fresh air. Even when some of those 'solutions' eventually failed. At least an attempt had been made.

    Now I see Senator Lieberman. Certainly NOT a Reagan, yet also a man not afraid. While I disagree with much he supports, I admire the man's courage of conviction. His willingness to act. While the bulk of his Party are still placing blame, he's actually trying to solve problems. There may be a lesson in there somewhere.....

    That's a good analogy dave. You and I must have shared the same experiences with Reagan, although I shudder to admit I was a dem too.
    I respect guys like Liebermann who put the considerations of their conscience and constituency ahead of popular opinion polls and elections.
