Arguments for the prohibition of drugs
A liberal kills people without a trial and does it in the open, a conservative is someone who supports killing people without a trial then denies it.

What is the difference between a liberal and a conservative? Oh that's right, there aren't any.

Some things you may consider progress I would consider regress or stagnation, status quo bullshit.

I didn't equate liberal to mean "progress". I also can't recall defining progress. At least, not intentionally.

I just gave the definition of liberal as it's seen defined by most sources, that fits with what I have learned and/or been taught, that corresponds with the historical context, as I understand it, and that also reflects the way I see it, accurately, being used in communication, both in a general and political sense.

You seemed to think that the way I described liberal was incorrect, that libertarians are inherently liberal, that liberal didn't apply to certain people, etc., and I just disagreed and explained why.

One thing I would say, disregarding liberal and conservative, is that there are people on the right uniquely able to endure the smell of their own shit, in the same way the people who continually lie can start believing it as truth.

It's a trait that I have to say any person should envy. They can even go to the extent of being proven incorrect, or having loads of evidence to the contrary, and are still will not be, even in the slightest way, shaken while maintaining their views.

Ah, I'm bored with this conversation now, but I will say that I inferred your definition from the culmination of your posts and the thoughts you expressed...

Anyhow, I think we'll just have to say the we have a difference of opinion on how certain political terms should be defined. I gave my reasons, you gave yours and neither of us changed our mind, at least I didn't. Whatever man, that's just how it goes sometimes, different perspectives.

I think the latter part if this thread has made an argument for the prohibition of drugs...
