    LIBERALS - believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need.

    Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve problems.

    CONSERVATIVES - believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals.

    Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

    Heres a sample of your republican beliefs in action. How about 8 years of Reagan, his unemployment record vs his own approval rating for 8 years.


    So much for right wing ideology.

    "The market economy involves peaceful cooperation. It bursts asunder when the citizens turn into warriors and, instead of exchanging commodities and services, fight one another." - Mises, representing the Austrian School of Economics

    "If we suddenly had a threat of war, had a military buildup, you’d be amazed at how fast this economy would recover." - Krugman, representing the Keynesian School of Economics

    So much for left wing ideology.

    ‎2008 Obama "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation”

    Obama unconstitutionally declaring war on Libya: "There will be times..when our safety is not directly threatened, but our interests and our values are..we should not be afraid to act"(1)

    So much for left wing ideology.

    "Gurgaon..has 26 shopping malls, 7 golf courses, apartment towers, a sports stadium, 5-star hotels and 'a futuristic commercial hub called Cyber City [that] houses many of the world’s most respected corporations.' According to 1 survey, Gurgaon is India’s best city to work and live..It thrives because in the absence of gov't the private sector has stepped in to provide transportation, utilities, security and more"


    So much for left wing ideology.

    You forgot the opening theme music that fits perfectly with the pure mythology you are spreading


    And I might add the mythology part pertains far more to the latter term than the former. Ever study those 2 terms in their historical contexts? No? I believe you!

    LIBERAL: A woman has the right to decide what happens with her body. A fetus is not a human life, so it does not have separate individual rights.
    The government should provide taxpayer funded abortions for women who cannot afford them.
    The decision to have an abortion is a personal choice of a woman regarding her own body and the government must protect this right. Women have the right to affordable, safe and legal abortions, including partial birth abortion.

    CONSERVATIVE: Human life begins at conception. Abortion is the murder of a human being. An unborn baby, as a living human being, has separate rights from those of the mother.
    Oppose taxpayer-funded abortion. Taxpayer dollars should not be used for the government to provide abortions.
    Support legislation to prohibit partial birth abortions, called the "Partial Birth Abortion* Ban"
    (*Partial Birth Abortion: the killing of an unborn baby of at least 20 weeks by pulling it out of the birth canal with forceps, but leaving the head inside. An incision is made in the back of the baby's neck and the brain tissue is suctioned out. The head is then removed from the uterus.)

    Sorry, but you just used the Nazi Card which means that you have lost this debate.
    Anything else you submit will be meaningless.

    Actually it is a proven theory.
    Who ever is first to use the Nazi Card means that they have nothing left to debate with.

    Same here.
    Sounds like republicans want to pay child support for 18+ years, rather then giving the woman a right to chose if they can't afford to bring up a child.

    Baba-- As am matter of fact, a theory is never proven or it would not be a theory, but a fact.
