This doesn't adequately reflect what was stated in the video. I think it's better if people click the link and watch the video.

To everyone who is posting junk; Watch the video, it is really good.

Life is the result of the struggle between dynamic opposites Form & Chaos, Substance & Oblivion, Light & Dark And all the infinite variations of Yin & Yang
When the pendulum swings in favour of one It will eventually swing in favour of it's opposite Thus the balance of the universe is maintained

I was responding to this part, not the video (Which I watched, and found very interesting):

Which as Kasey pointed out doesn't really reflect what the guy in the video was saying.

So you're saying Conservatives are more caring then Liberals? I'm deeply shocked to hear you say that LBA ;)

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Honestly, I think most liberals, like LBA, have their hearts in the right place, and genuinely want to help people, but they are too naive when it comes to human nature. You can't save everyone. And banning guns won't deter people from killing each other either. Criminals will always have guns. If you want examples: Prohibition and the War on Drugs has not worked either. Because you can't make a law against human nature, whether it's to use drugs or to kill people. Can't legislate morality...
I like the phrase, "I no longer try to change the world, I just try to get by in it." :)
But I don't think liberals care more than conservatives, or conservatives care more than liberals. Both are human beings, and probably care quite a great deal....

A liberal is a person who is so generous he will give you the shirt off someone else's back.

The ability of conservatives to deny hard verifyiable facts in favour of ideological postures. I am not talking about soft socialogical facts here, I am talking about empirical facts derived from hard science.
Hard facts are not a problem for Liberals, assimilate and move on - Simple.

A belief system which denies reality in favour of belief is dangerous.

Take for example those who advocate the belief in small government, and yet voted for people like Bush and Reagon who both presided over a growth in national government. Ideology denies reality.
