Why people cannot discuss an issue without the constant pot shots against "liberals" is beyond me. Sure, I realize the notion of being a conservative is sold as identity by the Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys of the world, but it's really not as if there are these two monolithic groups no matter how a person might want to simplify the world down to that level.
I happen to hold views that are liberal on some issues and more conservative on others. It is this game so many hacks play where they try to force everything into some grand bad liberal/good conservative schism (or the other way around) that reveals nothing but doggedness and conformity. Life is a whole lot more complicated than a cowboy movie despite the way various posters try to make it.
