    Death of liberal politics


    What's your point? I dont get it. There are basic things that any goverment has to provide. I think my ideas are pretty basic. Do you want to drive on a beaten trail or get taken over by a random country or have thieves and murderers in the streets because nobody got together and took care of basic problems?

    It doesn't even have to necessarily be "goverment", you could call it something else, but the point is that it's an institution set up for protection and ensuring the "pursuit of happiness" for it's citizens.

    If you are calling me a socialist you are a complete jackass.

    On the other hand if your just smarter than everyone else, well I have something yet to teach you. Why don't you try coming down to everyone elses level and explaining things in stupid terms so us stupid people can understand what it is you are saying.

    Part of communication is making sure your ideas get communicated accurately. Your response makes no sense at all.

      it was sarcasm - aimed at people other than yourself, actually. you and i probably agree more than disagree.

      many who would call themselves conservatives these days would call your list of things govt should do overly broad and bordering on ar even actually being socialism.

      myself - i don't think your list is all that bad.

      that said - that list could easily include healthcare.
