Back here in the comments section, we have a bit of ideological philosophy that is so breathtaking in its eye-rolling dumbfuckitude, well ... we'll let commenter "Skip" speak for himself:
You know, I'm becoming increasingly convinced that the left is afraid of freedom, not just the right. It would make sense - freedom implies the need to make decisions for themselves and take personal responsibility, something they pathologically seem incapable of.
That's us Lefties, all right ... worrying about accidentally running into "freedom" around every corner. That would, of course, be us Lefties who are advocating a withdrawal of military forces from Iraq so that they have the freedom to run their own country and not be continually killed by American troops.
And who keep promoting the "freedom" to worship (or not, as the case may be) whatever the hell religion we want (or perhaps none whatsoever), without some ignorant, fundamentalist goombah ramming their particular deranged superstitution down our throats or trying to codify it into law.
And who continually defend the freedom of people to marry whoever the fuck they want, even if those people turn out to be (gasp! horrors!) the same sex. And so on, and so on. Yes, Skip, that's us -- purely terrified of the very concept of freedom and stuff like that there.
Tell me, Skip, are you really that retarded? Or are you simply a clever, progressive plant whose job it is to make conservatives look like the stupidest life forms in this galactic quadrant? At this point, I could be persuaded either way.
