Liberals love thinking they know what is best for everyone and using the government to force that belief on everyone else, of course religious conservatives have some of the same bent but that is at least being restrained by the judicial system unlike progressives desire to control every other aspect of someone else's life.

It is not the governments role to protect you from yourself. Stupid should hurt.

Jesus, why is it always the same demographic who make these ridiculous assertions??

You don't see any liberals on this board goes, "Why are right-wingers against happiness and sexual satisfaction?"

That's because we are smart enough to know we don't need to ask questions when we already know the answer.

Leftists want a class of who they think are the smartest people (who always happen to be Leftist, by the way) to rule over the people they consider to be less intelligent.

What a hoot, but they LOVE having slaves make their cheap toys as their rights are denied at the human level.

That and they NEED the iron fist of government to institute their disastrous policies since any sane person would reject them outright.

Sorry Beagle, but an ox won't plow a field without a driver.

OWS was pure textbook self governing anarchist.

Many observers were mostly bothered by the hangers on. Many were not aware the the NYC police were bringing newly released prisoners to the OWS site and emptying the van every day. I saw more about the crazy person pooping on the car than was ever printed about what OWS was doing.

How can the leftist believe they are the only people fit to tell everybody else what to do, while simultaneous thinking that the group can decide on its own what the group wants?

I am right of center. I am the parent of two left of center women. One married a socialist, the other took up with what would be a card carrying communist if he would take the test. But he decided not to because there is so much infighting among the various factions.

IMO, the right is too focused on individual rights and the left does think somebody should have some control over business. Especially the businesses fouling the air and water.

What a hypocritical thread.

How have the conservatives felt about California when, through ballot initiatives, they have self-governed.

It really isn't about self-governing, it's about whether you like or don't like the policies brought forward.

Had voters in the UK voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU the "right wing media" would have not made a fuss, at most it would be respectful disagreement. But when voter in the UK go against what Liberals want the left wing media (which now includes mainstream media) calls voters racist, old, uneducated, etc. When you attack voters in a fair election you are attacking the system of democracy.
