    Since a couple of our resident liberals feel it necessary to start inane threads like Christianity and Communism(or whatever the hell it was), I'd like to get their take on something very important and that is what is their idea of freedom. I ask that they do not be cowards. Have the courage to post honestly. Yes you'll get flamed(probably) but I'm really interested in the subject of liberals and freedom.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Either the liberals on these boards aren't on yet or they're cowards.

    They are probably sleeping in since most liberals dont have jobs.
    Liberals are proof that evolution is only a theory. Nothing that stupid could evolve past a monkey.

    Freedom doesn't really exist except in anarchy. We've never been a purely 100% country. Government, as a a necessary evil is at it's most basic level restricts freedom with the very founding; that is one of the government's (any government's) main purposes, that and the defense of it's people. Freedom isn't truly definable...I think o freedom in terms of security, and in knowing I can do what I want within reason. In many way as such we aren't a free country.

    Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Anarchy actually is very restrictive of freedom - you must constantly be on the guard to protect what is yours. Minimal government increases freedom.

    Liberals aren't going to tell you what their idea of freedom is. Not without lying about it, anyway. To them, freedom is the right to reach deep into everyone else's pockets and take whatever they deem "necessary" that they don't want to earn for themselves. Of course, they can't admit that because it's stealing and people would object to stealing. And freedom is being able to disarm our society so that the stealing is that much easier for them. Freedom is being able to drive religious people underground so that they can't have any say in community standards and expectations of behavior, leaving them "free" to wallow in immorality and decadence.

    Of course they don't want to talk about their idea of freedom because the truth is ugly and stiffens resistance to their agenda. So silence or lies are all you get when you ask questions like that.
    The government cannot give anything to anyone that they did not first take from someone else.

    As opposed to your single digit IQ, compared to you, he's a genius...then again compared to you, a cockroach is smart.
