    I like the personal freedoms you have in Arizona.

    Texas also has more personal freedoms than most states.

    Now I'm old enough to remember when California also use to be near the top when it came to personal freedoms.

    Today California is near the bottom on the freedom scale.

    Once you experience freedom and then lose that freedom...you aren't a happy camper.

    No, those prices were supported also, because we had high middle class wages for low skill labor jobs.
    Since the killing of Unions and union jobs, prices had to fall, and they did.

    Those low labor countries were able to provide the same products much much cheaper. And those who lost jobs for lower paying jobs had to adjust and they did. But cheaper products allowed for lower wages.

    I remember back in the 80s. Grocery stock workers, mostly college student at that time, were part of a union and thy made $10/hr. Equivalent to about $30/hr today.

    What "freedoms" are to referring to? Are you a gun collector resentful that assault rifles are not allowed? Are you a racist/ bigot angry that you cannot deny renters who happen to be Black or gay?

    I assume research is on going as to why transgenders are transgender. Or for any other hosts of mental activities that isn't part of the standard deviation of the bell curve of what would be deemed a normal population.

    "Classical liberal" is a euphemism for libertarian.

    Libertarianism is an abject failure both under the Articles of Confederation and recently in Kansas. In both instances We the People REJECTED it because it is a failure.

    Not really, but they were more libertarian in many respects.
    (concerns over civil liberties, sexual freedom, etc)

    At some point liberals completely ditched the liberal side, went socio-fascist and now believe the means justify the ends.

    The extremist rightwing have attempted to DEMONIZE the term liberal however they still cannot alter the DICTIONARY meaning of the term.

    The dictionary term no longer fits the present-day liberal.

    You are entitled to your misinformed opinion but REALITY ignores it.

    Have you actually looked up the definition of both? There are quite a bit of difference on many issues, and some commonality on others. I had no idea that libertarians were in favor of a certain amount of gov't interference in capitalism!! Are you sure you know what you are talking about? I don't think so if you see both of these things as exactly the same. For they are not the same. Look it up and get back with me if you want. .

    While I am more of a classic liberal than anything else, it is seasoned with some progressivism, and even a bit of conservatism on particular issues. So I am in no way a purist, and I think purists are idiots. Just an opinion. And like FDR I believe in pragmatism. If you try something, and it fails, no matter what ideology it comes from, hell, try something else, no matter what ideology it comes from. Just as long as it isn't some crazy ideology.

    Interesting list but more interesting how much is reveals about you. Everything is YOU not us. Sorry such selfishness and disregard of the environment/ humanity/ self-responsibility is why you are a Republican frustrated that you have virtually no influence whatsoever in California. You have voice but no power; pretty pathetic.

    It's all about freedom of choice.

    As far as I'm concern you can do anything you want as long as you don't get in my face.

    But some need a nanny looking over them.

    The nanny state.

    OK then next time you need help for whatever reason, the state of California should just ignore you. We are way overdue for a bad earthquake for example. If your house collapses on you and your family you prefer to handle the problem yourself I guess.
