That doest mean you agree or support it (of course it could mean that) It simply means what I asked. What are some of the ideals of liberalism/ left leaning thought that you get?
For example. I am sympathetic to gay marriage.
Given the things said around here, I know plenty of you are sympathetic to price controls, unions, wage caps, socialized medicine...and a lot of other issues.
So, who is first?
Abortion...although a personally repugnant procedure, having the GOVERNMENT tell a woman what she can/cannot do with her OWN body is even MORE repugnant.
Fix Reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason than of blindfolded fear. -- Thomas Jefferson
