The liberal view is not that people are good, but that they are products of their environment which makes a hell of a lot more sense and has much science to back it up unlike the view that we are born with original sin.

I love how conservatives view people as evil and corrupt and therefore government is corrupt and evil, yet the Free Market is next to godliness. Well, I think we've seen what unregulated free market leads to: greed and corruption.

I think this was meant to be a comment on the post below. Let's be clear that i don't think even Tea Party conservatives would say that the Philadelphia Trumpet speaks for them. It's a very wacky fringe religious magazine.

I also don't think your pseudonym is going to win you any arguments on the topic of whether one side or the other is evil. Making a gratuitous reference to a politician's baby, who has Down Syndrome, seems unnecessary and wrong to me.
