How can you read that and think it applies to liberals more than conservatives?

When I read that I think of the Republican party's desire to make a Christian nation and remove the separation of church and state.

I think of morality laws like the war on drugs and the abolition on prostitution and gambling, and the opposition to gay rights.

It makes me think of the rampant xenophobia in the Republican party that thinks wityhout question that America is the greatest country on Earth and everyone should have a flag lapel pin on them at all times. It makes me think of the Republican party's stance on immigration and how conservatives feel about foreigners, muslims, and anyone that doesn't speak english as a first language "destroying" this country.

Libertarians can be either pro-choice or pro-life, it goes back to what you consider life to be. For those that consider life to begin at conception, they believe that the government interfering with abortion is like them interfering with any other murder. To them, government has to protect life.

However, many Libertarians are also pro-life, but don't think the government can mandate a pro-life agenda. I find that many Libertarians are wholly disinterested with the trumped up abortion debate, though. Myself included. I don't care about it, but for some reason it seems like every political debate has to come down to it.

"Liberal = fascism"

Ughhhh.

Wikipedia's definition of fascism: Fascists seek elevation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people through national identity. They are united by suprapersonal connections of ancestry and culture through a totalitarian state that seeks the mass mobilization of the national community through discipline, indoctrination, physical training, and eugenics Fascism seeks to eradicate perceived foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture.

Comparing light bulbs to abortion isn't really a fair comparison

There's no doubt that BOTH major political parties want to make certain decisions by the citizenry be optional and other "choices" be mandated. They are BOTH for bigger government in the noun and verb form of the word. Saying "Ya can't have it BOTH ways, Democrats" is walking through life with blinders on.

mykunter, of course that wouldn't get posted, it's retarded.
Even on the internet, a sea of retarded political jabs, a post from Craigslist that makes veiled threats against Palestine, believes healthcare is a luxury, and assumes right-wingers have automatic ownership of the police, military,pharmaceuticals, Wall Street, the US flag, national anthem, history, the concept of Capitalism, Christianity, greedy CEO's (not the good ones?),rednecks and Alaskan soccer moms,
is actually going to stand out as the special needs kid in the class.

@Andrew155: Uh, Ron Paul is Pro-life. Which, to me, contradicts Libertarianism. I still like him though...

"Pro-intervention" LOL. This makes them look bad, you could just as easily troll mindless Republicans too, though. Something like linking Pro-life and Pro-death penalty stuff.

Everyone is full of contradictions. It's almost cliche to say, but Ron Paul is one of the only political factions that doesn't appear to have many contradictions.

Politics is interesting, but dumb.

and who's surprised? I think both sides are guilty of this in one form or another.

We need more Libertarians.

For the record, I'm pro-choice, pro-transfats, pro-soda, pro-whatever kind of light bulb you want to use and a democrat.
We're not all hippies.

Okay, so turn this around. If Republicans are so outraged by the "nanny-state", then why are they against choice in this case? (I know, I know, dead 'babies'.)

Though to be fair I hate nanny regulation, if it's not demonstrably reducing danger to other people than those engaging in the activity.
