Why do liberals call themselves "independent thinkers" when they all believe the same progressive propaganda?

Is that funny? A bunch of "free thinkers" who all believe the same thing.

    Classic liberals aka libertarians are true free thinkers and defenders of freedom and liberty. 21st century liberals are nothing more than modern day collectivists who stand for totalitarian government control. Anyone with any experience debating a liberal on nationalized healthcare knows this. And that's just one issue. So in essence, progressives today are actually going backwards in their ideology, as it's nothing new and in fact already exists. Failed economic and social policies written by a guy named Karl Marx.

    As far as tolerance? It's laughable. 21st century liberals have tolerance for everyone except those whom they disagree with. That and heterosexual, Christian, white males.

    I do not believe that liberals are independent thinkers. I also do not believe that conservatives are independent thinkers. Should they be then there would be no need for their flocking to the likes of Rush, Beck, O'Reilly, Palin, Hannity, Savage, Berry, LaVine, Pauges - well you get the message. Don't you? At least you get THEIR message, don't you?

    Nice generalization there, I suppose you think all conservatives are flawless also.. right? Because, obviously liberals are the only ones capable of being sheeple while conservatives all are rational thinkers, not at all swayed by the media or group thought.

    Oh, don't get me started on what liberals believe and the conflicting reality. They also believe themselves to be more highly educated when, in fact, the statistics speak otherwise. Unfortunately, this erroneous belief and the ignorant belief that being educated in one area makes you an expert in all areas has rather disastrous affects. For example, Obama, whose education is strictly in the legal field, believes himself to be sufficiently knowledgeable and educated in business despite his complete lack of education in the area and absolutely no business experience to speak of, to lecture the chamber of commerce on how businesses should be operated and their priorities.

    I just find this amazing. So, no. Independence of thought and intellect on a par with a bumpersticker. Don't even get me started on their 'coexist' bumperstickers. The ignorance knows no bounds.

    What is liberal propaganda I supposedly believe?

    Liberalism covers a wide range of political beliefs. Liberals don't all believe the same thing.

    I am so sick of the hate in this section. What is your problem? Why are you being so hateful and intolerant?

    Good point, though of course, the same applies to any ideologue.
