Thom Hartmann Show: Callers Share What Freedom Means to Them: What Makes Me a Liberal Democrat

This is the perfect subject to blog about for me, because it goes right up my ally, in what Liberal Democracy and Liberalism is to me. What it means to be a Liberal and why I'm a Liberal, Individual Freedom, the ability for people and we are talking about adults, juveniles has less Freedom under law. And thats a good thing but the Freedom for free adults to live their own lives, until they take the Freedom of innocent people to live their own lives away. Thats what Freedom is and the number one job of government, if not only job of government is protect the Individual Freedom of free adults. And to expand the Freedom for people who deserve it but don't have it, because they simply don't have the Freedom to live their own lives, because they are dependent on Public Assistance to survive. That we are all judge at least under law, as individuals and not members of groups, what Dr. Martin King said, by the content of our character and not by the color of our skin and that includes. All Americans whether they are minority or majority and thats where I come down and covers everything from Economic Freedom, where we would have the Freedom to be as successful in life. Based on our production an qualifications, as well as Personal Freedom, where again we have the Freedom to live our own lives.

What I just wrote I believe would offend just about every Progressive and Neoconservative, who reads it. And I'm not trying to sound partisan here but Progressives and Neoconservatives simply have a more Statist approach when it comes to individuals, that government main job is to. Look after and protect people even from themselves and its the job of government to prevent people from making what they call mistakes, even if that means protecting people from themselves. Progressives as it relates to living a healthy lifestyle, controlling what we can eat and drink, as we've seen up in New York and Neoconservatives at it relates to issues like pornography. And homosexuality and unfortunately many others, they have different approaches but their goals are the same, use government to protect the people, not just the innocent from the guilty but the innocent even. From themselves at times so America is safe as possible.

If Progressives and Neoconservatives had their way, America would be at least the goal would be for America. To be a very safe and dull country, where Americans wouldn't be allowed to make mistakes, because our Freedom would be so limited, where Uncle Sam would have a lot of authority. In the country to protect Americans from themselves, thats not what Freedom is and what it means to live in a Liberal Democracy. Liberal Democracy, which is really what Liberalism is about, is the Freedom to even make mistakes, as long as your mistakes don't hurt innocent people.

CBPP: "Mitt Romney Budget Proposals Would Necessitate Very Large Cuts in Medicaid, Education, Health Research and Other Programs

Romney Budget Proposals Would Necessitate Very Large Cuts in Medicaid, Education, Health Research and Other Programs — Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

The Romney Budget is essentially the Ryan Budget but the way to save the Safety Net, especially Medicaid. Medicare, Social Security and so fourth, is not by gutting them but making them real Welfare Insurance Programs, only intended for the people who need them, Self Financed, so they don't put so much pressure. On the rest of the Federal Budget, including the National Debt and turning them over to the States to run, along with reforming the Defense Budget and Tax Code, there's the deficit vanishing and we can finally. Start paying down the National Debt, once we obtain some real sustaining Economic Growth.

AlterNet: Opinion: Lynn Stuart Parramore- 'Are You Ready For a Post Masculine World?'

This piece was originally posted at FRS Daily Journal: AlterNet: Opinion: Lynn Stuart Parramore- 'Are You Ready For a Post Masculine World?'

Men who needs them? A Far-Left pipe dream where men are not even welcome, or where masculinity disappears, or where all men are essentially gay. I find it ironic that people on the Far-Left who are so anti-male man-haters, tend to be somewhat dykish even and have masculine characteristics themselves. Even though they claim to be anti-masculinity. They see football, boxing, interest in cars, tools, gambling, checking out attractive women and I could go on, but I have other things I would like to accomplish in my life, but they see all of these activities as somehow sexist. Even though a lot of American women, straight even, like football, boxing, cars, tools, gambling, etc and are some of the most feminine, beautiful and sexy women you’ll ever see.

It is not so much masculinity that the man-hating sexist Far-Left doesn’t like. Well they don’t like masculinity, but it’s male masculinity and male heterosexuality that they don’t like. But if women are a Dyke, no problem, because she’s just being who she was born as. According to Socialists on the Far-Left who don’t like masculinity when it comes from straight men. You’ll never see straight men, or women who are to the right of Socialists, democratic or otherwise, which is only most of the world, try to put down female femininity. Because we love women, especially straight women. At least coming from a straight man. We love who they are and how versatile that they are. That they’re cute, beautiful, well-built, funny, but they’ll also stand up for themselves and watch sports with the guys.

There straight women who like sports and there are straight men such as myself, who like soap operas. If they’re funny, well-written, well-done and seem to have some broader point other than, ‘who is Jake going to stab in the back now.’ Or whoever the character is. Without straight men and yes we tend to be masculine which is a common characteristic about straight men and something that straight women tend to like about us, we would have a country of gay men and overly adorable and feminine straight women who never grow up. We would be a national day care center and kindergarten class. With no one to fix the cars when they break down, police the streets, defend the country and so-forth. Because all the men would be makeup artists, or clothing designers. Well I guess the dykes could handle the male responsibilities. It would be a strange universe where everyone who enters who use to live on Planet Earth would think they drank too much, or got too high the night before.
