  • @the430movie “Gotcha Legislation?” I am not sure what that is. Again, I do not know exactly what Jefferson would have to say today about the medical care issue, but he often looked to Europe for inspiration. Let’s talk about legislation; do you believe Jefferson would have approved of the “Patriot Act?” Where were the same town hall and Tea Party protesters when that abomination was passed? Jefferson would be considered an “Elitist” and singled out for not being Christian.

  • @timpipe In particular those that degradate the founders principals… You must be one of those Secularist…. and Agnostic…. Even Jefferson who was not god fearing in the such realized that a principaled nation is not that of ideology but of value and virtue… How do you explain someone that saves you from near death??? Where does that come from? Is there a scientific Ivy league explanation for humanity??

  • @timpipe are you talking about how true liberalism has been perverted under the present liberal…. it has a totally different meaning than of that which is today… If you consider “Gotcha’ legislation a will of the people such as this healthcare, then you fall in line with those that have perverted it…. I am well aware of changing times, as how things are already grafted in… Its up to us to stop the Cancer and kill it… So come up with something other than talking points!

  • The Preamble to the United States Constitution has to be the most epic sentence ever written.

    leave it to the horrid youtube crowd to have a liberal / conservative argument on a children’s video about learning the preamble to the constitution. absolutely pathetic. you all gave me my laugh of the day for sure. i showed this to my students and they read the comments, they were like, “what losers argue about the schoolhouse rock preamble?”

  • Lynn Ahrens sings (and I think she may have written the song too)

  • liberalism
    Political and economic doctrine that emphasizes the rights and freedoms of the individual and the need to limit the powers of government. Liberalism originated as a defensive reaction to the horrors of the European wars of religion of the 16th century. Its basic ideas were given formal expression in works by Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, both of whom argued that the power of the sovereign is ultimately justified by the consent of the governed.

  • that stupid girl if it wasnt for her we or children would be able to vote

  • WE THE PEOPLE of the United States,
    In order to form a more perfect union,
    Establish justice ensure domestic tranquility,
    Provide for the common defense…

  • Fascism is not a liberal institution. It is authoritarian by definition, which is the antithesis of “liberal.” Fascism and communism have nothing in their purest form to do with each other. And as soon as Wendy’s is government run, I will worry about this country becoming “socialist,” but not before. A democratically elected representative government was a “radical” idea 200 years ago, by the way.

  • Conservatives of the day would have been more than happy with a new monarchy. The Bill of Rights (liberality at its best) is pure Jefferson and had to fight for its inclusion into the constitution. States rights is a modern “conservative” view of a radical liberal idea of self governance. Humanitarian and philosopher, Jefferson often looked to Europe for ideas and the notion that everyone should be able to go to the doctor, poor or rich, would not be much of a stretch , I believe, for him.

  • @timpipe
    Are you sure about that Tim? T. Jefferson was an anti-federalist and wanted the power to remain in the hands of the states not the Federal government. That is by nature a conservative idea atleast when talking about American politics. Obviously many of our founding fathers had a mixture or “liberal” and “conservative” ideas as do both of our major parties today. What do you think Thomas Jefferson would have thought about nationalized health care or government bail outs?

  • Thomas Jefferson was a liberal, as was Benjamin Franklin and James Madison. A democratically elected representative republic is by definition a liberal institution. Talk radio and Fox News do not determine the definition of the term “liberal,” as much as they would like to.
