    well your profile says liberal and from California--SO I assume it was reasonable to take you at your word. but you normally are an articulate poster-what is your definition of american liberalism?

    liberalism as practiced by the American left is a claim that most americans need government direction and guidance in their lives
    Not really. As Redress said, you're just demonizing liberalism.

    Most people can take care of themselves while some (the elderly, disabled, etc) cannot, and need help at times. Our current economic crises is because the American people spent more than they made, and didn't save, and even then, social security is a safety net for people. Mandatory health care is to address the obvious foundational problems with our health care industry, and gun control is to make it harder for psychos to get guns.

    To be frank, I've never really thought about it. I've always just considered what I've thought, and what people around me thought, and I really suck at drawing large conclusions from huge amounts of data. Redress could probably give you an answer; I can't.

    I don't think this should be a difficult question. I still think the only reason Biden got the nod was as part of a secret agreement with Obama to drop out of the race. Obama needed the Dem voters who were more sexist than racist, but they were all going for Biden. Obama knew he wasn't going to win in the three-way. Also, imagine what would have happened if Biden had won in 2008 and enacted his plan to divide Iraq into three weak nations among cultural landmarks and then leave it. We would be back in there already fighting WW3.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    gun control is a complete failure and why did libs ban EVERYONE from owning certain types of guns (its already illegal for crazies to own any type of gun if they were adjudicated mentally incompetent)
