"However, I guess I'm also "liberal" because I believe in the freedom to choose what I do and how I live -- and I feel no need to try to tell YOU (or anyone else) how they should live, as long as they obey obvious laws and mind their own business."


It wasn't conservatives that in many states stopped buisness owners from allowing folks to perform legal activities on their propoerty(aka smoking)

It wasn't conservatives that came up with the idea of 'hate crime' legislation. Deciding what was in your mind should effect what actions you perform and what your punishment should be.

It wasn't conservatives that started the entire idea of historic preservation of propoerties and stopped property owners from treating their property as they wished.

It isn't conservatives that shout down every conservative speaker at public and private functions or 'pie' theose they disagree with

It isn't conservatives that decided my daughter should learn how to put condoms on cucumbers and learn about 'alternative' sexual choices.

It isn't conservatives that determine I can not choose what schools my tax dollars go to, in order to educate my children

The list goes on and on. Your definition might have meant something about what 'liberals' are in soime time long gone by, but it has nothing to do with how liberals govern, nor with how the judges they put in place rule.
