Dims approve of men going into women's bathrooms. If that's the definition of freedom, than they can have it. I just call it for what it is... Weird.

Neither. Both are willing to deny constitutional rights when it suits their agenda.

Too difficult to answer. They both want to control you.

The dems want to control what you can say. They want to keep you from making “too much” money. They want to prevent you from buying weapons for protection. Some even want to tell you what you can eat and drink.

The republicans want to tell you how to live your life too. Well, the religious right, not all republicans. Who you can marry. What kind of sexual acts you can perform in your own home. Whether or not you can have an abortion, etc.

Neither one really values freedom as much as they want you to believe.

Another bait thread intended get the Rs and Ds to argue. Is this thread an attempt to sow discord within the USA?

Every single person in the USA values freedom. Even people that don't vote and people that vote but aren't in the R or D party. Heck, the non-party/independents are growing faster than both parties anyhow, so it's not even an R or D issue.

The country is based on freedom and freedom is valued by all. Even 16 year olds that are too young to vote value freedom and want more and more of it. Ask their parents and their teachers.

I have to agree.
There are many examples of both parties attacking freedoms. The Patriot Act for example. Calls to ban guns.

The collective doesn't value the individual. The choice is easy.

Until the GOP stops wanting to control women's uteri, it's a very clear answer. Their claims to the contrary are pure hypocrisy.
