I don't support state-sanctioned marriages, period.If you are as socially liberal ('probably' moreso than me, as you claim) I seriously doubt you would have quoted my post and given a lame attempt at dimantling it. It is more likely that you would have at least agreed with something that I wrote, or at least sympathized with the positions. In addition, you felt the need to add 'spare me the partisan talking points'. Since my 'talking points' (your words) were unabashedly liberal, perhaps we can dispense with the smokescreening altogether. If you are truly more socially liberal than me, feel free to illustrate where exactly you are. Gay marriage? Don't Ask Don't Tell? Where, exactly, are you more socially liberal than myself?
I don't see DADT as a social issue.
I support the full legalization of drugs and prostitution.
I believe in the separation between Church and State.
I dunno, anything else?
I wouldn't be surprised if I was, which is why your reference to conservative rhetoric is off the mark.Feel free to use my quotes in this thread or any other to show me where you are 'probably moreso' socially liberal than me.
Gay, straight, polygamous...whatever.
Just don't expect the government to validate your lifestyle by institutionalizing it.
What liberal social policies would I be againstAnd yet, the fact remains that you did have a problem with my grade of Obama; furthermore, you went on to further attempt a rebuttal against my liberal position. No, I think you're against liberal social policy for the most part, not the speed at which it is being implemented. Otherwise you wouldn't have taken issue with my post, or started in with the 'liberal this' or 'liberal that'.
Couldn't I just take issue with your general idea of political action?
I had major issues with his health care ideas and stimulus plan.... And i mean major. But none the less we are doing better.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

He gets a few points off just for allowing Rev. RicKKK Warren to speak at his inauguration.
