    I define these two groups as follows:

    LIBERAL: Someone who thinks you are responsible for everyone execpt yourself


    CONSERVATIVE: Someone who thinks you are responsible for your own actions

    A liberal is someone who thinks he should help those who are less fortunate than he is.

    A conservative is someone who wants to protect his own possessions.

    So how come liberals want to kill all the babies from disenfranchised single moms and take children from families at 2 or 3 and put them in state funded childcare?

    Yep... a conservative wants to protect.... life, liberty and not have the few dollars they make taken to kill the babies the liberals are wanting to 'help'.

    Big Government vs Big Business.

    I think I prefer the latter. Big business has provided me with a pretty good livleyhood over the years. Never worked for the government. I think The Late Great Ronald Reagan said it pretty well.

    "Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem"

    </font>[/QUOTE]Liberals don't want to murder the children. The poor mothers want to murder the children they can't afford to have.

    Why do conservatives think the lives of unborn children are precious (and I agree) but want to murder 100,000 innocent Iraqi cililians?

    A liberal looks at a glass of water and says it's half empty.

    A conservative looks at a glass of water, and says it's the liberal's fault it's half empty.

    A neocon looks at a glass of water, and says we need to invade a small nation.

    Don't forget us conspiracy theorists who look at it and wonder if any liberals, conservatives, or neocons poisoned it... ;)

    Seriously, conservatives go for the traditional and liberals go for the new. Both are valuable sometimes and disatrous other times.

    The liberals and fundamentalists lie in the same bed. Just on opposite ends.

    Liberal = Bill Clinton

    Conservative = George W.Bush expanding on Bill Clinton's policies.

    Actually, Clinton never dreamed of being as liberal as Dubya turned out to be. Hillary, maybe. Not Bill.

    My concern is to be neither liberal nor conservative, but Biblical. I guess I would be considered extremely conservative, but I see an inherent danger in allowing 'conservative' values replace to biblical ones.

    I will not post my definition of a liberal lest I get kicked off the board for flaming. [​IMG]

    It all depends on the issue being discussed.

    No, it doesn't. Conservatives have principles. Liberals have lust for power.

    Liberals have a lust for social justice... conservatives have a lust for 'just us'.

    Social justice only for the groups that liberals support. There is no desire in liberal groups to stop abortion and extend social justice to the unborn child. Nor is there any desire to extend social justice to groups that oppose liberals. In other words, liberals are biased.

    Poor examinationm of Exodus.

    21:22-23
    If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life...

    A fetus is not given the same status as a human life; death to the fetus carries with it a fine... harm to the mother Eye-for-Eye. As one out of seven women in the world die during childbirth, and that the presence of unwanted children is a burden to those already present, how can one deny her this choice?

    As for the rest... silliness. Liberals are steadfast supporters of Civil rights for all groups, including conservative ones. The right wing however...

    New American Standard Translation:

    "If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she[21][Or an untimely birth occurs; lit her children come out ] gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined as the woman's husband may[22][Lit lays on him ] demand of him, and he shall pay as[23][Lit by arbitration ] the judges decide.
    23 "But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life,
    24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
    25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise[24][Lit welt ] for bruise.
