According to yourself, what is a 'liberal' as opposed to a 'conservative,' and is one the reciprocal of the other?

There a little know equation which very accurately describes government: Liberty = 1/government.

Liberty and government are reciprocal quantities, i.e., the more of the one equals the less of the other.

When they are in equilibrium, both are equal.

If liberty =1, and if government = 1, then the result is equal, i.e. 1 divided by 1 equals 1.

If government increases by twice, then liberty is diminished by twice.

In order that there be more liberty, then of necessity government MUST be smaller. Conversely, if government gets larger, then liberty diminishes in direct proportion.

So, do 'liberals' want more, or less government?

And what of 'conservatives?'

So based on your logic, a place like Somalia offers much more "freedom" than the United Sates.

Planning on moving where there's more freedom?

There's little or no government in Somalia.

So prove your conviction (and your "logic") and walk the walk, son.

Now I understand your stupidity, idiot breath. You're big on ASSumptions. Karma is a______ and Here's the one are not the same posters.

So either you are trying to back away from your claim that I said it is illegal to hunt moose in Canada, which I never did, so you are looking for a way out by hiding behind your claim that we are

or you are a complete and utter idiot who makes unfounded ASSumptions

Its a myth that the NRA represents gun owners of America. They represent gun and ammo manufacturers. All of whom profit immensely from the fear mania generated by the anti gun control crowd's claim that gun control means the gov't is going to seize your guns.

You get BS info from the anti-gun crowd and believe it. The NRA represents it millions of members. Yes, the gun and ammo manufacturers support the NRA, but nothing like its members do.

The government is not going to seize guns, but there are many elected officials that openly admit they wish they could. That is why this POS's need to be put in their place.

That is the talking point. But, in reality, 90% of those polled support expanded background checks. That is 1,110 people. Less than 0.000005% of Americans. Which probably blows the 90% of all Americans claim out of the water.

If 90% of ALL Americans wanted expanded background checks Senator's phones, Email & snail mail would have been swamped. None of this happened. So the agenda belongs to the push pull poll buyers (as with ANY poll). Lies, damn lies & statistics.

Your website isn't coming up too good. And if you'd read post #4080, you'd have seen me make these two cites:

Â• Quinnipiac University poll, March 26-April 1, 2013. "Do you support or oppose requiring background checks for all gun buyers?" Support: 91 percent. Oppose: 8 percent.

Â• CBS News poll, March 20-24, 2013. "Would you favor or oppose background checks on all potential gun buyers?" Favor: 90 percent. Oppose: 8 percent.

IOW, if you don't like the conclusions then just blame statistics. If you DO like them, then tell us how great, how SCIENTIFIC statistics are.

Not half as much BS as we get from the PRO-gun crowd and the lobbyists at the NRA.

The NRA wants to help its supporters sell and buy guns, whether to Joe Hunter or Jose Drug Gang Assassin. Money talks, that's their rule.
