So someone with conservative thinking reached that by logic, life experience and common sense, but someone who thinks liberally is a puppet of their education and indoctrinated? I'm constantly amazed at the things slung around on this site.
My most liberal viewpoints are these:
1. Protect the environment. I live in nature, I make my living from growing food, I for years had to buy bottled water during my pregnancy years since our well water was contaminated. I saw my neighbor overspray his crops to the extreme, I saw him die of cancer in his 50s. I love nature. I want to protect it.
2. I think people should not be allowed to starve. It's basic human decency, and it comes from my religious views, normally associated with being a conservative. But liberals have religious views, too.
3. I think we should have less war. It's vicious, it rarely solves anything (at least in recent history), it drains the federal coffers, it's devastating to all involved.
I'm sorry, but in a college education based on science, it's hard to come up with too much liberal indoctrination. I had a course in women's studies, but the strong women in my family had already taught me all I needed to know about the abilities of women.
I think anyone with a brain can have a life of education, either formal or self education. I graduated college 16 years ago and hope to never stop learning. My parents never went, and have never stopped learning.
As for ridiculous legislation, both parties come up with it. I still remember a proposal by a MI representative to force foster children to receive only used clothing, this as a great way to balance the state budget. I don't hold one idiotic proposal against all Republicans. I don't know the details of this particular bill, but I'm guessing you would hate to be medicated against your own choice.
