Instead, they are steeped in the mythical "fairness" and "equality of outcome".

We conservatives know that liberty and freedom cannot be granted by a king or a ruling class, but can only be endowed by our creator (or natural law) as a unalienable right.

That being said, they fail to understand those words.....except in the sense of "freedom" to kill babies....or "freedom" from any responsibility......or "freedom" to express your sexual desires.....or "freedom" to take the property of some to give to others.

NEVER do lefties seek liberty from an overbearing, overreaching centralized federal government.

I, and people like me, do NOT have an agenda, unless you call getting back to our constitutional foundations "an agenda".

We use Teabaggers as punch lines. Liberty and freedom are under assault by Republicans. Think of how free we were under Bush/Cheney.

What percentage of African Americans would you say are part of "the left"?

Do you think they ever used words such as "liberty" and "freedom"?

Your OP is based on absolutely no factual data ... just your own opinion ... which happens to be completely wrong!

again you are off your game today alpha. defending a woman's freedom to control her own body just as a man gets to do is seeking liberty from the overreach of the government.
