I get called a libbie, because i'm liberal, so would a proper nickname for a conservative be 'connie'? Libbies and Connies...it all sounds very...British! Or maybe i get called a 'lib'..hmm i don't know if it would be PC to refer to all people on the conservative side of the fence as the 'cons'...I doubt they'd care really, but that's just my overly PC 'dem' mind working. Dem...that's not a very flattering nickname either, now that i think about it. Maybe we call all get together and nominate some better nicknames to call each other, then we can practice democracy and vote on the best ones. Just like in the primaries though, you can only vote and make nominations for your own 'side'. It would probably be just about as productive as our regular debates and discussions anyways. :shrug:

what i dont get is why so many consider being named a "liberal" is bad??? wasnt it liberals who won us our country? wasnt it liberals that put an end to slavery? wasnt it liberals that fought for womens equality? in my opinion liberals have been the backbone of many great causes. i feel that the only people that label other people as liberals in a bad way are old racist republicans.

Lincoln was a Republican. Most of the people who founded this country were religious bigots although there was a fair libertarian representation in NYC from the Dutch presence.

Yes, but at that time the Republican party was what we would define as 'more liberal' today.

The only thing the current day partys really share with there ancestor party is the name. The people are different and so are the times and ideals.
