    I was driving down the road today and this quote popped in my head. It struck me how easy it is for a liberal to make this assertion, and here's why:

    1) No one with different political views to yours is trying to disarm you, your family, your neighborhood, your country.

    2) No one with different political views to yours wants to tax you into oblivion, nor does anyone with different political views to yours try to convince you of the absolutely absurd notion that we, as a society, can tax ourselves into prosperity.

    3) No one with different political views to yours is trying to get a program passed that will prevent you with the force of law from going to whatever doctor you wish to go to.

    4) No one with different political views to yours is trying to subvert your authority as a parent by making abortion available, without your knowledge, to your kids.

    5) No one with different political views to yours is taking up Senate time to try to silence your liberal radio personalities.

    6) No one with different political views to yours consistently puts forth the notion that producers of society are obligated in any way, constitutionally, ethically or morally, to pay the way of non-producers.

    7) No one with different political views to yours embraces socialism and communism to the extent that they share stages with their practitioners at protest rallies where every aspect of the American way of life is excoriated as murderous, greedy, tyrannical, criminal, tortuous, racist, sexist and religious zealotry.

    8) No one with different political views to yours is Hell-bent on destroying the singular American culture and replacing it with multiculturalism, even to the point of denying Christians rights and long-standing traditions, while giving Muslims free reign as regards the same rights and traditions.

    9) No one with different political views to yours has ever outlawed a car or a motorcycle or a power plant or a refinery or a logging operation, or any number of private endeavors, or fought to deny your country the right to harvest its own natural resources for energy, all because of an unproven theory that your politicians have seized upon to further grow government and reduce liberty.

    10) No one with different political views to yours has sought to free captured terrorists from a safe offshore prison camp so they could go back to the battlefield and kill more Americans.

    I just came up with these 10 things off the top of my head. It's but a small sample of what I know liberalism seeks to accomplish. Of course you don't see your ideological adversaries as enemies. We're the ones trying our best to uphold the culture and traditions that make you what you are; a free American. We're the ones who, even though we strongly disagree with much of what you believe in, have no interest in codifying into law that our ideology be practiced at the expense of you not being allowed to practice yours. We're not your enemy because we don't try to conquer you, we simply disagree and allow you to disagree with us without bringing the power of government in to force you to adapt to our way of life. When liberalism, as an overall ideology, can say the same thing honestly, then the people who practice it will cease to be my enemies.

    Yeah, it's real easy for you to say that you have no ideological enemies. It ain't that easy for us though.


    PS: And just as a point of clarification, it's a rhetorical "no one" that I'm referring to above. Don't think you've caught me in a major faux paux if you can think of a couple or three conservatives who would be on your side of some of those issues. And I don't take for granted that you personally are on the other side of all those issues Ishi. It's generalized going both ways, and, in general, the above depicts a small part of liberalism quite accurately.
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Because I like guns so much that I don't like to be without one- or two.

    One may also quote Psalm 1911: "And yea, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I will fear no evil for I go cocked and locked. My Glasers and my Hydra-shocks they comfort me."
    Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat. There ARE things to be feared more than death. The fyrd is a Constitutional imperative.

    According to the US Dept. of Justice in 2005 71% of all 911 calls for violent crimes, police response time exceeded 6 minutes. 28% 6 to 10 minutes, 34% of that total 11 minutes to 1 hour, 3% within 24 hrs, 2% of the total exceeded 24 hours and its slowing down. To quote Ektarr 9-1-1 -- When Seconds Count . . . The Police are only Minutes Away!That's why I carry a gun.
