Facts Are Not Subjective

Facts are not subjective. By their very definition, they are objective. There is objective reality so to say "everyone sees what they want to see" should really say "people who see what they want to see are not objective." Remember, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but no one is entitled to their own facts.

This was obviously posted because of all the religious whackadoodle posts that have dominated this place lately driving people away.

I couldn't care less what you believe. You believe in zombies that rise from the dead after 3 days, star children, and sky fairies? Fine by me. In fact, I'll fight to the death to defend your right to believe those things.

But the moment you want to use gov to force people to conform to your beliefs, you are no longer part of the liberty movement. You are just another statist, no better than any of the rest of them. You become an enemy of liberty.

You don't get to pick and choose what is liberty. If there is no victim, there is no need for government to get involved. You are not a victim if two people of the same sex get married, or 5 people of the same sex get married, that's their business. If you had any real interest in liberty at all, you should argue government has no business in marriage PERIOD! It has no business conferring special rights on people who are married. So when you want government to be involved here, you are just another hypocrite who doesn't want to give up your freebies.

This will get voted down here, but that just proves why this place has become a laughing stock in the liberty movement. So you guys have fun talking about 9/11 Truth, Chemtrails, yada yada yada while the rest of use continue to do the heavy lifting while having to walk through the muck you make confusing the issues.
