Wow, way to set up a false bogeyman liberal straw man and then mock it. Name the show. Provide a transcript. That's way too pat a set of issues to have come up in one conversation.

It's also amazing that you managed to completely invert liberalism and the American Right. Liberalism is about providing the largest variety of choices of life to individuals consistent with the overall welfare.

The American Right isn't about choice, though. It's about dictating moral behavior and freeing up business behavior. If the American Right were really about choice, they wouldn't be so deeply embedded in the Fundamentalist Christian Right, who are the most anti-choice (in every sense) people in the country.

Oh, and there are liberals (a lot of them) who actually live by the rules that they propose others live by. In fact, I live by rules that are more strict than those I would expect others to live by, but that's my choice, and I wouldn't impose that choice on others.

The Sean Hannity radio show. The date is the same day I posted my article, November 18, 2004. The show ran from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM on 1040 AM Radio. I assume you to be able to look for the transcript at your leisure.

Contrary to what you may think, it isn't liberalism that provides the largest variety of choices of life to individuals. It is freedom. That freedom extends to the so-called "Fundamentalist Christian Right" as well as the liberals.

I appreciate your thoughts and respect your opinion, and based on your last paragraph you're not as liberal as you may think.
