Quote# 9858

Some time ago, here at TOL, I started a thread which sought to re-label Liberals and Conservatives.

I stated that we, as Conservatives, should be called the Liberals, because we seek to liberate people from bondage, from oppression, and to liberate their God given rights.

It is the Liberals who are the ones who seek to conserve those things.

So, let it never be said that it was the right-wingers who lynched blacks, they just had the wrong label. They were very interested in 'conserving' or 'restricting' people's God given right to life.

Surely this is all redundant. Both words, 'conservative' and 'liberal' can be neatly encapsulated by 'ungood'.

Love Big Brother.

Nate!

Stupid far-right liberals.

Edit: also, how come conservatives don't seem to generally care about conservationism? And why doesn't discussion involve a discus? This sucks.
