I'm with you, we need a word for not-conservative-but-still-valuing-work-and responcibility. Some variation of Ann-Rand-ism perhaps, combining freedom/liberty/staying-out-of-peoples-lives with personal reponcibility? Can't wait to see The Plan (tm).

Ahhhhh liberalism. Isn't it fun? Ask 100 liberals what it means and you get 100 answers. I'm liberal and my views don't get close to the American version. Its a wonderful ideal, but falls down on the assumption that everyone is intelligent and equal. Personal responsibility is great and we do need more to encourage it. While being able to admit at the same time people are not equal. (Mental illness, luck, naivety, abuse of trust by authority figures, animal motivations not controllable on the conscious level)

Still gotta love the fact that Ayn Rand spent the last years of her life living off the state. <cough>double standards<cough>

Not trolling! I do that on infowars as its far more fun there.

Oh infowars, proof that just because I agree with a person on SOME things doesn't mean we're on the same side.

Re Ayn Rand living off state - really? LOL
Re ask 100 liberals - good point.
As my friend Enigo would say "Let me 'xplain...no, will take too long, let me summarize"
A) Right of me = fashism,
B) left of me = comunism.
C) Librals who disagree with me, see A or B as applicable.
(just kiddin - but I do hate the bipolar left/right nature of current politics, I feel like I'm north of center on a different axis all together)

Nice one no on of consequence, pretty spot on.

Ayn Rand though:

In 1976 she retired from writing her newsletter and, despite her initial objections, reluctantly allowed Evva Pryor, a consultant from her attorney's office, to sign her up for Social Security and Medicare.

So yeah, pretty much living off the state. Unless your commenting on the spelling mistake, where I can admit I should have grammar checked my post.

@Webweasel and I presume also guest:
Not commenting on spelling mistake.

I don't throw "gramma/spelling Nazi" rocks from inside my own glass house since:
I'm terrible at spelling and gramma my self,
I still don't know what mistake you may have made, and
I spelled Ayn wrong to boot (Yay me).

Should have been "Living of off the state"
