Bingo. It's shame we can't have a major party that's across the board for freedoms. Americans are too divided on a few simple social issues.

There is no major party, but there is Ron Paul.

If more liberals
were this well thought they might actually pique my curiosity and interest. And *gasp* I might even vote for someone who believe this way, in spite of being a "liberal."
I hate how political labels can sway a person one way or another. I really don't care if a politician professes to be a republican or democrat. What matters is if they're going to stand up for our constitution. ALL of it. It's too bad Ron Paul ended his campaign for the presidency.

Like Randy, I have never understood how some of my fellow "liberals" take the views on firearms that they have. I have never for a moment thought that if guns were outlawed crime would drop. It will not. Ever. Its a human condition.
That said, just from a quick glance at some of the comments posted ABOUT "liberals" in this thread give me understanding about why they are so defensive. As a "liberal" it is hard to state your case and position when others are quickly setting up as many straw-men as possible so they can be quickly knocked down. Its aggravating.
I'll stop now as I am pretty sure that we are not supposed to be going on a political rant....
