8. Not sure I really care anymore
If I stand against intrusions into the lives and choices of others by complaining about laws that limit choice I get called a libertarian here.

Here on a progressive board I find people willing to throw freedom out the window for the sake of health care costs (trying to control what you eat/smoke/drink/etc), folks who think the government should control and make choices because the average adult can't/won't make the choices those people feel is best for them, etc and so on.

Standing on principles of freedom and such has went out the window.

We won't lose our freedoms - we will give them away with a smile on our face thinking we have saved others from themselves.
