Ok but liberals must sometimes give their own money? Also, what if there is a disaster and republicans are in power, does that mean they will never allow taxes to be used to sort it out?

Confused by what a Liberal is in America - the other day people were criticising Liberals for suggesting you do things for others and contribute to society and community.

Finker, you certainly are confused. The person who suggested that we should VOLUNTARILY help others was a conservative. The liberal is the guy suggesting that we should pass laws that let the government take money from people who earn it by force and under threat of imprisonment so liberals can give give it away to their friends and supporters, like Solyndra and the ObamaPhone lady.

P.J. O'Rouark said it best: "A liberal is someone who would gladly give you the shirt off of someone else's back."

More proof that things are basically the same as they've always been.

I prefer the speech from Guess Who's COming to DInner which says that your parents decided to bring you into the world and therefore they actually do owe you something.

"You listen to me. You say you don't want to tell me how to live my life. So what do you think you've been doing? You tell me what rights I've got or haven't got, and what I owe to you for what you've done for me. Let me tell you something. I owe you nothing! If you carried that bag a million miles, you did what you're supposed to do! Because you brought me into this world. And from that day you owed me everything you could ever do for me like I will owe my son if I ever have another. But you don't own me! You can't tell me when or where I'm out of line, or try to get me to live my life according to your rules. You don't even know what I am, Dad, you don't know who I am. You don't know how I feel, what I think. And if I tried to explain it the rest of your life you will never understand. You are 30 years

Lol, what a self-righteous ass. Pretty rich too coming from the generations of squandering.

I owe the world about jack & poo. That's what tax is for. You can't even die for free.

"You didn't build that"

Obama didn't write that speech.

The last paragraph was cut out, "You're a cog in the machine, a worker who needs to be mindless and never think for itself. Do what you're told, and never have fun."

Every generation is a disappointment to the previous one - except maybe the generation that went through WW2. (OK, mum?)

But this was bad advice. Visit the sick? When I'm sick the last thing I want is a visit from a bloody teenager.

@finker
as far as I can tell, a liberal is anyone who a republican disagrees with. A republican is anyone a liberal disagrees with.

Actual content of the opinion is immaterial when you can blame something on "the other guy".

Mr Fart, I concur. The election of Obama shows how rare this attitude is.

oh god, don't let the liberal democrats see this, they would do everything in their power to sue whoever wrote and printed this.

Presenting it this way guarantees that the advice won't be listened to. Becoming a responsible adult is something you have to learn through experience. A few nudges in the right direction can help, and some conversations at crucial points...but in the end it will either click for them, or it won't.

And after that there's not much you can do to change them.

@ Bremir - no I won't call you "immoral". It is a moral obligation to your community to give-back but the fact you do not grasp that isn't "immoral", it's just sadly ignorant.

Bless your heart.
