    The don’t at all.
    But calling themselves Pro-choice is much nicer than Pro-Abortion.

  2. Dave87gn says:

    thats not how vouchers work..if you let everyone choose..obviously no one would choose the bad school..
    vouchers are a way for rich people to get their kids out of the bad or underperforming school and leave the kids that are struggling behind.
    And liberals don’t support soda bans or bans on guns to Non-mental patients

  3. Randy says:

    I think you’ll find both sides have an issue with freedom of choice.
    I heard a line that “the left hates freedom because freedom is dangerous. The right hates freedom because freedom is a sin”

  4. Mike says:

    Because they hate children. Why do you think they like abortion.

  5. Carlos M says:

    Those things are much different than Abortion, they are not choices they are forced on the person by society, OH maybe not so good question.

  6. Bill Lumbergh says:

    You are so right, like freedom to use marijuana, freedom to have sex with a prostitute, freedom to not have laws based on religion, freedom to use birth control, freedom to have sex with your spouse that is illegal in many southern states, freedom to choose whether or not to bring a child to term, freedom to marry someone of the same sex. The liberals block all the freedoms that people desire…

    Because choices obstruct their goal of “equality”. They prefer to bring everyone down to the same level rather than have some do well. This is their reason for wanting to overtax successful people, denying choices in education, and forcing businesses & organizations to hire less qualified candidates. To the liberal it is better for life to suck for everyone equally.

  8. Scott C says:

    What you describe is freedom through liberty, to freely choose. The left believes in “freedom” through coerced equality. Thus policies like “income redistribution” and “social justice”.
    For the naive leftist, this is a shock, even a revelation. For the committed devious leftist, they know they harm they do, but don’t care. They either want to “get even” or are benefiting directly, usually financially, politically, or both..

  9. Gasy says:

    For starters, there is no evidence that it improves education.
    The second point is that schools with no standards to measure from are not improvements.
    I have little to say about the soda except after the firs 32 ounces it is meaningless to me.
    Finally, all the gun bill had was mandatory back ground checks. How would that matter to a good person who wants a gun for protection?

  10. Sad Madoka - RIP MJDG says:

    I support all of that, you fail.

  11. Liberaltarian with an AK says:

    Many are Pro-Choice:
    Women can choose whether they have a medical procedure.
    Law-abiding can choose if they want a firearm (or 4 or 5)– even scary looking semi-autos.
    They should also choose whether they grow and ingest a naturally occurring indigenous plant.
    Choice in what religion, if any, they practice– there is more than just one ‘correct’ religion, after all….
    And even choice in who they decide to love and share a life with– including medical and legal benefits.

    Freedom of choice is… you have a free school or you can pay to attend any school you choose!
    No government should pay for any child to be taught a religion and to many people would want their child to attend a religious school.
    Freedom to drink a large soda: Sure you should be able to drink a large soda but it should be illegal to have them while your driving.
    Those very large drinks are dangerous because its so hard to hold them in one hand. They are flat out dangerous in the car and could cause an accident.
    You should be able to have a firearm for protection but since guns give people the capability of killing some one they should be regulated.
    No one is trying to take away all the guns, that will not happen, that’s just the NRA being paid by gun lobbyists to spread fear and drive up the sales of guns and it worked!

    The trouble with liberals is just that they know so much that isn’t so.
    They are Advocates of a policy that empowers a strong federal government to enslave its people with a high tax burden incident to the support of extravagant and unnecessary social programs destructive to both the work ethic among the lower class, and the incentive to innovate and succeed among the working class.
    “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
    Liberals like to spend other peoples money!!
    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
