Liberals who want to ban sodas aren't really liberals. Being a liberal means you believe in the people's freedom and minimal restrictions by the government, other than those necessary to keep law.
The words "liberal" and "conservative" have become synonymous with pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage, and anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage respectively. They relate to things other than these issues too.

That's why we have the terms Democrat and Republican that are never used by these 14 year old anti-american retards on this site
User avatar #238 to #208 - randomserb (01/27/2013) [-]
Those terms are very ambiguous. They don't represent political philosophy, but alignment to a political party.
Democrat =/= liberal, and republican =/= conservative.
User avatar #279 to #238 - partnerintroll (01/28/2013) [-]
That's what I'm getting at, that the terms are used incorrectly for the position of the parties
#179 to #106 - xxxsonic fanxxx (01/27/2013) [-]
Actually, conservatives are the ones for limited government. liberals believe in implementing social programs like welfare and affirmative action whereas conservatives are agaisnt raised taxes and a powerful federal government. You sound more like a libertarian

cool stroy bro, what about gun control?
#146 to #106 - xxxsonic fanxxx (01/27/2013) [-]
Im sorry i raelly just want an answer no need to hate. How did liberals, if they believe in individual freedom primarily etc, become part of the democratic party which is generally accepted as the "big government" party i.e. more gov't less individual?
User avatar #215 to #146 - deerbeer (01/27/2013) [-]
Republicans are conservative only when it comes to abortion and gay marriage, and such. Democrats are liberal also only when it comes to those kind of topics. Either than that, it's actually reversed. People who are called liberals, aren't necessarily real liberals. That's the point he was trying to make, and you also confirmed it.

name a moderate republican.

You clearly don't understand how political ideology works. There are Democrats and Republicans spread out through the entire spectrum, including extremes and moderates on both sides.    
   
To answer your question:   
   
Lee Terry (R-NE)   
Chuck Hagel (Former Republican Senator NE, currently on his way to Obama's cabinet)   
Richard Lugar (Former Senator of Indiana)   
John McCain (R-AZ)   
Susan Collins (R-ME)

okay, now name some extreme democrats
#266 to #263 - pooflinger (01/27/2013) [-]
Harry Reid (D-NV)
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

And based on the diagram to the left, Stalin, Putin, Mao, and Marx.

Again, there are extremes to both parties, and bad people on both sides of the spectrum.

Note where freedom is placed on the diagram

Lol, you want to see liberal logic? the soda ban.... is racist.....

A bit farfetched.

Saying that the average liberal wants to ban sodas is like saying the average conservative likes to bomb abortion clinics (which actually happens just because they don't like abortion). Stop being a biased faggot and use logic.
#100 - bathoryhannibal (01/27/2013) [-]
I think you are confusing banning giant soda cups, and banning soda in general. Those are two very different things. Also this is widely criticized regardless of political views. My parents are conservative but support it because of the health problems soda is linked to. I consider myself a moderate, but don't support the ban because I don't think it will solve the issue.

What liberals want to ban sodas?

I have never heard a liberal in the US say they want to ban sodas.
User avatar #97 to #85 - dementedllama (01/27/2013) [-]
I think it means more of the idea that certain unhealthy foods should be banned instead of teaching people to watch their diet and have some shred of personal responsibility.

Well, (too much) soda makes you fat, probably resulting in heart deseases.
The treatment is payed by who?
--> All of us health insurance payers.
Germany **** yeah.jpg...

I don't want to pay for others stupidity...

did you really just support banning food and drinks???

Others are paying for your stupidity.
Don't act like you're living a 100% health conscious life and have never ****** up.
User avatar #89 to #86 - sabaton (01/27/2013) [-]
I'm not saying, that I live a 100% health conscious life.
Everybody (me included) getting ill or injured gets help from the system, thats what it's here for. It's a good thing, so paying is totally accaptable.

But IMO getting really obese is such a long term condition, that can be prevented and should. If you're not able to care for yourself, the government intervenes (and in extreme cases bans things).

tl;dr You don't wake up one morning being obese.

I know someone like this.. The bitch wants to ban GMO foods though.. If she wants to eat like a picky organic only eating rabbit then she can but she doesn't have to destroy my food source.. She doesn't even eat meat.. Why she pissing all over the GMO salmon..?
#79 to #76 - tyraxio (01/27/2013) [-]
I don't think you get it. GMO foods shouldn't be banned because they're bad for you, they should be banned because they're bad for the Earth, you know, other people than yourself. It's a bit like smoking in public.
