Oh, and one more thing -- @duby, please do not confuse liberalism (or rather social liberalism to be more accurate) with socialism. What you are opposing is socialism -- liberals will never wish for more taxes or more government involvement... It is true that Dems in the US are leaning toward social-democracy, but that doesn't make them liberals. Neither do the Reps supporting the free market; however, you could also say they are both liberal to a certain degree (depends on which half of the glass you consider).
Meanwhile, both parties are working tirelessly to impose an over-reaching and all-powerful government which would be in nobodies interest but theirs -- but somehow people are more concerned over healthcare and immigration... oh, please wake up!
