    I did express an opinion, not don't have an opinion either way. I have far more respect for those who's political lean doesn't blind them to reality, such as your statement that liberals are not concerned about freedom...

    Ahhh but the devil in that is who gets to decide what is 'right' and what is 'wrong'.

    But again, I don't think people will care "how much" is being done if all that is being done is eliminating freedom.
    The avatar picture is a joke... (if you ever pay attention to my stuff, you will see I have a huge sense of humor)

    Actually, what motivates the majority of people is comfort and security. Sad but true, people tend to not to do much else but pay lip service to higher principals. Plus nobody ever agrees on what the higher principals aught to be anyway. I believe this is why all societies inevitable end up taking a middle path between the stronger ideologies inherent within that particular culture.

    Then you will not respect me - but that's alright because I stand up for what I believe in and would rather be hated for that than liked for what I'm not. I don't cave in to pressure to "compromise" what I believe in - what is right and wrong.

    Liberals really do hate freedom and it's obvious from everything. They also want to turn America away from God.

    That's one of the biggest lies I have ever heard. The evil one doesn't get to decide anything.

    Society is constantly changing. Both for the better and worse. People can be taught the truth.

    heh, yeah, good luck with that whole truth thing.

    Society is obviously changing, as ideologies change, and society is always trending towards that ever changing middle.
