    Smug Alert!

    And Rights comments are not about all liberals. Its about people who are likely to take time off work, or its the Daily school so lets be serious take off time from college, to travel to a comedic fake rally put on by a comedic fake news show because they're so much better and smarter than those silly tea partiers and going there shows they're obviously intelligent and cool. Its likely hyperbole and over exaggeration, with a purpose, and the smelling their own farts thing definitely seems an allusion to the South Park episodes depiction of the "progressive" San Francisconians (franciscons? franciscoites?)

    I know and love several liberals.

    I find them harder and harder to find, though, because so many who call themselves liberal aren't liberals at all as far as political philosophy is involved.

    That still has nothing to do with loving/not loving someone. One can still love someone who will on occassion engage in self-satisfied, self-congratulatory behavior. We all have our faults.

    No, the loving bit is more about me being curious - and knowing you can't play "people in a box" with someone you love. Or at least I can't.

    Because they then become individuals, and not "them".

    A number of relatives are liberals, including my grandmother on my moms side. My best friend is probably best described as a moderately conservative democrat. My fiances dad is pretty much a hippy.

    Well I don't feel that it is currently appropriate for me to answer the poll but I know* it is quite possible to like/love another with a different political lean. What happens is that you know that certain topics cause particular reactions that are predictable and so the prescription is to talk about all else. This isn’t so bad, unless the parties in question are obsessed with their political lean. Intellectuals can find a way around it but on the plus side it can be viewed that some debate is stimulating and not negative necessarily.

    One of my best friends STILL thinks Obama is doing a great job. I just don't talk politics with her. Problem solved.

    That's why I come here, so I can argue with people I don't like. :

    Please show me what part of my statement indicates anything about all liberals? You might want to read a bit more carefully in the future, as this is the second time you've misconstrued something I said and started a thread on it.

    And as to the question in your OP, probably 70% of my friends and most of the people I love are liberals, many of whom are far more liberal than the average person who calls himself a liberal on this site.

    Tucker said it was a South Park reference, but Right said nothing to indicate he was not serious.
    I also said nothing to indicate that I was referring to all liberals, but you didn't pick up on that either.

    That's got to suck, Even my liberal friend thinks Obama has screwed up royally and the Democrats are ruining this country. He just hates the ultra-religious-right Republicans much, much more.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
