BTW, remember when Wilbur used to deny being a liberal?
I still deny it, I just don't bother too here anymore, since "liberal" here is defined as "anything but freeper-like-conservatism".BTW, remember when Wilbur used to deny being a liberal?

I don't.believe in anthropogenic global warming (and support economic austerity programs that redistribute wealth in order to deal with it),
You may have me there but when I disagree with his actions, there are plenty here to bitch about it so one more doesn't really make any difference.defend Obama at every opportunity,
I try to avoid Palin stuff so no on that one.parrot MSM talking points about Palin,
Got me there. I oppose capital punishment. But then again, I'm Pro-Life and see an inherent inconsistency to being that and supporting the Death Penalty.oppose the death penalty,
I don't.seek therapeutic remedies for crime (rather than understand behavior as a moral choice),
I don't. And when I defend a certain religion when you advocate suppressing it, you get tetchy.support the suppression of religion
I don't.and side with pretty much every enemy the US has while being unable to utter an unapologetic or unqualified expression of patriotism.
Yet, I am still a "liberal" here. I think Wilbur has a valid point.
Even libertarians have to admit the existence of market failures... C&T is a particularly capitalist, free market economics way to address some forms of market failures... namely externalities generated by pollution.Let's see... You favor cap and trade,
Though I've repeatedly said, I'm skeptical of the strategy being applied to CO2, even though I'm not opposed to C&T in principle.
Party affiliation has nothing to do with scientific facts or theories. Its possible to believe AGW and be the most republican republican that could possibly exist.believe in anthropogenic global warming
No, really don't.defend Obama at every opportunity
The intelligence level of Palin, again, has nothing to do with party affiliation.parrot MSM talking points about Palin,
Actually, opposition to the death penalty can be said to be true to very essence of libertarianism - entrusting a government to choose who lives and dies is anathema to many libertarians.oppose the death penalty,
Huh? I seek effective remedies for crime, whether that be punishment, therapy, or something else.seek therapeutic remedies for crime (rather than understand behavior as a moral choice),
But of course, all the consequences of said remedies need to be accounted for, including power entrusted to a corruptible state... a death penalty for jay walking would probably be effective at stopping jay walking, but also effective in bringing about tyranny.
Atheism and anti-theism is strong in the libertarian world.support the suppression of religion
You'll have to be more specific.and side with pretty much every enemy the US has while being unable to utter an unapologetic or unqualified expression of patriotism.
And you are making it plainly obvious, that you don't even know what a liberal (or libertarian) is!Oh, and you accuse everyone to the right of you (which is pretty much everyone here except for Wei, KS and Arroyo, although he has his lucid moments) of being a Freeper. If you aren't a liberal, you do an astonishing imitation of one.
