A little fun with semantics from this lefty clown. What she misses is that conservatism=classical liberalism whereas today's liberalism=reactionary liberalism.

Is this a High School essay?

A public school teacher?

A prof of "higher education"?

A celeb?

"Liberals are simply open minded"

Now that is drek, so of the most close minded folks that I have ever met are liberals, there words simply drip vitriolic hatred that would shock the average person.

Ms. Morris needs to understand that we as
conservative, tend to be more interested
in "separating the rotten apples and oranges"....JJ61

Paula Morris is a self-described person with a "socialist perspective" in this letter she wrote to the Socialist Worker:

"("Values") and beliefs should have nothing to do with politics." Did this person actually write that?

What's hilarious is the last statement in that paragraph accusses conservatives of wanting a dictatorship - a government where no one is allowed to stand for anything!

"Liberals are simply those who view things with an open mind."

Someone should ask Clarence Thomas or Samuel Alito if they agree with this statement.

I used to live in Park Forest. When I would vote in the primaries there would be about 15-20 voting booths for the Democrats with long lines and one booth for Republicans. When I would stroll in and ask for a Republican ballot the judges would all be surprised and laugh that a Republican finally came in. LOL!

What an idiot. She's is probably getting worried about a 50-50 split, having realized one side has most of the guns.......

Conservatives want to CHANGE Roe v Wade. Liberals want the status quo.
Conservatives want to CHANGE Public Schools. Liberals want status quo.
Conservatives want to CUT TAXES. Liberals want to RAISE taxes. Both favor CHANGE.
Conservatives want to drill in ANWR. Liberals want status quo.
Conservatives want to CHANGE from Sadam to free elections. Liberals want status quo.

More unsubstantiated proclamations of dogma from the priesthood of the Church of the Left.

Wonder if she knows that George Soros used to rape entire countries for profit? Doubt she'd care, as she doesn't seem to care about Hollywood lefties that make millions off movies that spew garbage and propaganda to millions of impressionable youngsters.

We sat and watched as the United States went backward and threatened to become a fascist government. That means business controlling government.

This line cracked me up...if she bothered to look at the definition of fascism, she would see that it describes the Democratic agenda for this country. See below:

a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

Problem is that not every conservative feels comfortable with classical liberal ideals. In fact, many that post here in this forum do not: there the same ones who secretly feel that this author is fairly spot on in places. In my opinion, this author is not stupid...I think he wrote this with a purpose in futhering the divide in the GOP between the more libertarian wing and the more paternalistic/morality wing. This is a brilliant play on the Left's part.

Corporatization has become the new tyranny.

I'm not aware of any corporations that have ninja clad agents with three letters on the back of their jackets that will break into my home with flash bangs at 0300 and kill me because I cut a half inch too much metal off the barrel of an old shotgun.

Forgive my language, but what a dumb C U Next Tuesday.

"Liberals are simply those who view things with an open mind."

Yeah I can't help but notice the open minded attitude being demonstrated by liberals on college campuses when conservative speakers are invited to give their point of view !!!
