OK, I hate Conservatives. Now we're even. Let's look at the dictionary definition of liberal and conservative:
Liberal:
1. relating to or having social and political views that favour progress and reform
2. relating to or having policies or views advocating individual freedom
3. giving and generous in temperament or behaviour
4. tolerant of other people
5. favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
6. favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression

Conservative:
1. favouring the preservation of established customs, values, etc, and opposing innovation
2. a person who is reluctant to change or consider new ideas; conformist

Very unfortunate, political races are won by who ever has the most money. This means, only the rich or super rich can run. What ever happened to, "by the people for the people" ? The common man can not affored to run against lawyers and doctors and corporate heads, union bosses and the like.

Based on the definitions, I can see why leftists increasingly call themselves Progressives,'cause they sure aren't tolerant of other's who dare have opposing views!

Everybody missing the point in politics these days. If you sit back and look at what’s going on. It seems that political races are about nothing but raising money and not about what the candidates are standing for or even what party they’re from if that matters anymore. The whole system as it is now is shameful. All that money collected and spent on advertising (buying votes) could used to feed hungry people, go to help pay off the national debt, build and upkeep our roads. All candidates tell you what you want to here anyway, why put all that money into it!

Kane? The guy that couldn't decide whether he wanted to be governor of this commonwealth or the head of the DNC? That Kane? Yeah, he certainly did Virginia right while pandering to the national party to further his political career.[insert eye roll here]

So they can continue telling you what you want to hear. We're doomed because money will never be extricated from politics. NRA outspends gun control lobby 11 to 1, and thwarts even the most modest proposals to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Politicians have only self-interest.

"Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is made up of 550 mayors around the country, wants the background check to include the records of all felony convictions, domestic violence incidents and people with mental illness and a drug history. Secondly, it would like to require “occasional sellers” of firearms, such as people who sell weapons at gun shows or through ads, to be required to conduct background checks."

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2011/01...

"NRA’s rhetoric has convinced gun owners that the “gun-control movement” seeks to ban all guns. Remove this rhetorical obstacle, and gun owners would be much more likely to support measures designed to break up illegal gun markets — which is also a step toward diminishing the power of the NRA."

The first is already being done, the second is gun control group's attempt to address a problem that doesn't exist.

Tell me, how many weapons have been bought from private sellers at gun shows that were later used in crimes?

What law would have prevented Jared Loughter from buying a gun?

Umm, yes that IS the ultimate goal of the gun control movement.

Maybe if the Brady's, etc, toned down their rhetoric, maybe if inner city mayors weren't trying to bankrupt gun companies through frivilous lawsuits, etc, etc, people would find your agrument that the NRA is pushing paranoia more believable

from same article:

"Finally, the NRA has successfully argued that gun-control laws are ineffective while it also works to ensure there is little to no government funding for scientific research on the effectiveness of gun-control measures. Supporters of gun control have to win the effectiveness argument if we hope to win at the ballot box. Although existing research in the United States may be slim, the plunging number of gun deaths in other post-industrial nations with reasonable gun-control laws is strong evidence in support of a national policy."
