    So one who doesn't think rights come from some sort of deity is automatically a collectivist?

    ask the left, "are rights endowed by the creator"........they will say flat out.........NO!

    they believe rights are created by man, a collective body of people, the collective mindset.

    collectivism is the opposite of [individualism], ......which is what america was founded on.

    under collectivism..... no individual rights exist because the collective decides what they are, and the individual is subservient to that collective.
    All of that is wild exaggerated over generalization.

    The GOP doesn't really give flying **** about personal responsibility. That's not an opinion, it's documented fact.

    It's not belief. There us no such thing as a left that shares complete unified beliefs. Same goes for the right. Most people are some combination of the two, depending on the issue. But even if there really was a unified group of people of any significant number, so what? Are you afraid to merely argue the points? Over generalizing is often done to avoid any real arguments. There is no other real or honest reason for it.

    Obama, during the campaign, made some offhanded comment about how properly inflating one's tires improves gas mileage. John McCain ridiculed him for it, even though he was right.
