ask the Southern liberal
 
Anyone want to ask a Southern liberal anything? I live in a super-red state. The last time my state went for a Democrat was 1976. Fire away!

Do you find a difference between a southern liberal and, say, a northern one?

From your posts, I would probably consider you a more pure liberal than some southern liberals, whom I would actually more consider moderates. (Kind of like my neck of the woods--coal country Northeastern PA-- where I would be considered a raving liberal as opposed to the left leaning moderate I consider myself.)

Is your family liberal or conservative? If conservative, what influenced you?

Do you prefer Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Allman Brothers?

Do you think there is any politician out there that either Obama or Clinton could choose for their ticket that might swing your state Democratic?

Have you ever run bootleg whiskey?

If Obama is the Dem nominee, who has a better chance of carrying the Hispanic vote in your state? Obama or McCain?

Yeah, I'm pretty much a pure liberal. My whole family is liberal.

The Allman Brothers. I hope Obama picks a Southern running mate. I've never run bootleg whiskey. If Obama is the nominee he has a better chance of carrying the Hispanic vote.

1976 Jimmy Carter


My question:
Do you agree in the increasing intrusive power of the federal government over the States and the lives of the American citizens?

One example is the No Child Left Behind legislation pushed and made into law by President Bush.


Thank you

I'm for government intervention as long as it's for the welfare of the citizens.

Who should decide what is best for the welfare of the citizens?



Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.

Um, the citizens, that's what makes it a democracy.:huh:

Is it frustrating to be around people with views so radically different from yours? Do you feel like you need to repress your views sometimes because they wouldn't be popular in your community?

Yes. It's frustrating to be in such a conservative place. The local newspaper is very conservative. The governor is a Republican. We don't have a lottery because of the Southern Baptist Convention. All of this really pisses me off!:mad: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

I guess you mean a pure democracy.

The majority is always right.

Right?

I don't like it that the Southern Baptist Convention runs my state.:censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

Please post, a few things you think, how these Southern Baptists run your state.
