Can it be consistent with liberalism to "treat" conservatives for their mental disorder, even if it actually is a mental disorder?

According to a Gallup recent poll

quote:
Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. Source

Even though they are in the minority, with half the numbers, liberals are trying to make conservatism a hate crime and a mental disorder.

I guess if you can't win in the realm of ideas, you try to get your enemies outlawed, eh?

(Can you say, "Gulag" boys and girls? I knew you could!)

Great minds, etc....

I too found some questions worded in such a way as to have no really good answer.

Re: * cracks up *
Buzsaw, meet Coyote. Coyote, may I introduce you to Buzsaw?

I suggest that if you are lumping Buz and I into the same group you are not paying very close attention.
