    As to your blanket statement about conservaTIVES, being behind every blah blah blah, however, I would say you are wrong. In areas such as environmental regulation and gun control,it is liberals who seek to reduce liberties. They see these as justified restrictions due to the greater good, but restricts what an individual can do nonetheless.
    Apparently 'conservative' isn't the only misused term. Anyone who wants to reduce liberties isn't liberal, no matter what you or they say. And I don't know if 'liberties' is the right word when it's environmental issues you're talking about.

Likewise, I wouldn't sit through this moron's ignorant drivel nor give credibility to it. He doesn't deserve my attention or my presence.

    So anyone who demonstrates themselves to be intolerant should lose equal treatment under the law? I think I could actually get behind that.

    So where does your right to equality come from?
