Damn... Just Had This Thought... Maybe We Do Have More In Common Than We Think...

Liberal: I DO NOT want the government to have a free pass to bypass our rights and possibly kill us.

Conservative: I DO NOT want the government to have a free pass to bypass our rights and possibly kill us.

Centrists: I DO NOT want the government to have a free pass to bypass our rights and possibly kill us.

Maybe ???

3. I think the difference is - what rights are we talking about.

Liberal - everyone has a right to heath and happiness
Conservative - I have the right to health and happiness and if my happiness infringes on your rights - so be it.

Centrists are imaginary numbers.

4. I think you might be on to something...

question is do any of those groups want the government bypassing someone else's rights--you know maybe for the greater good.

You think the Conservatives (teabaggers specifically) might have wanted to see some skull busting when it came to Occupy protesters? They seemed to really hate them. Or maybe terrorists?

How how about Liberals, any groups come to mind for them--teabaggers maybe? I don't know any, this is just a question..

I think for the most part the answer to the above is no. But there are some that get carried away...those are the ones we need to keep our eye on..

5. Well

I get necessary support when I get my disability. That ethnic slur down the block is collecting welfare and I can't stand it!

That's usually how it goes. Look at the Ron Paul debacle. He's all for market solutions until they don't go his way, then he appeals to government to make things right.

I don't tend to find liberals in that kind of hypocrisy as much. It usually requires more doublethink and mendacity. The closest you get is a pacifist asking someone to protect them from violence with threat of violence. But it's rare to find such ridiculous stereotypes in the wild.

6. One common thread does not a sweater make

Having said that I am one of those that would love to see the day we aren't picking and choosing our friends based on a R, a D, or anything else. Just love, and yes, I am a dreamer.

7. HUGE K&R The greatest fear of oligarchs and authoritarians

is that we will figure out that they are dividing us into battling groups and oppressing and stealing from ALL of us...

....And unite to stop them.
