jptorisky, I agree with what you are saying here, but one thing that bothers me is the "labeling" of people.

You're right, it's not always the case. But far more liberals believe we are the ones at fault in this war rather than islamic extremists. Also, liberal organizations like CAIR (council for American Islamic Affairs) and the ACLU are defending these terrorists as well as illegal immigrants.
Right Wing, Left Wing, Liberal, Conservative... all labels, when all we are is simple people with minds of our own. I don't go by a label, and therefore, I don't like for someone who doesn't even know me to label me.
Bush was SUPPOSED to be conservative, but that went out the window a long time ago, even Condi said that in her interview, because Conservatives are not supposed to be so wrought up in WAR and lost lives, that the only answer she could give is that they were "thinking" with more liberal thoughts these days... (Pre-2007)
Whether you like it or not we are all labeled. That is the way the country works. I am not saying all liberals are evil but I am generalizing their ideals. No one agrees whole-heartedly with their party's beliefs. However, there are some central values that all share in common with each other. You can't argue with that. I also believe that Bush is not truly conservative in his actions either, as is evident by his massive spending.
I think that this whole nation is slowly moving to the left and it is the unraveling of our country. No one is held responsible for anything anymore. Government will fix everything. Family values are a thing of the past and heaven forbid anyone mention the word, "GOD"!
