There is so much difference, but the picture does a good job at starting to explain the reality-based morality that keeps liberal fighting the good fight.
 Conservatives tend to resist change and refer to history and tradition for inspiration. Liberals tend to embrace change, and look to history, science, and philosophy for inspiration.

GOP Senate Candidate Akin: ‘Free Enterprise’ Means Being Allowed To Deny Equal Pay To Women

Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) has struggled with a well-established woman problem in his Senate campaign, ever since he claimed women could not get pregnant from “legitimate rape.” After he said his opponent, incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), was not “ladylike,” her campaign released a video of Akin suggesting that businesses should be allowed to pay women less than men.

When a man asked him why he voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Akin said he didn’t support the idea that “government should be telling people what you pay and what you don’t pay.”

AUDIENCE MEMBER: You voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Why do you think it is okay for a woman to be paid less for doing the same work as a man?

AKIN: Well, first of all, the premise of your question is that I’m making that particular distinction. I believe in free enterprise. I don’t think the government should be telling people what you pay and what you don’t pay. I think it’s about freedom. If someone what’s to hire somebody and they agree on a salary, that’s fine, however it wants to work. So, the government sticking its nose into all kinds of things has gotten us into huge trouble.

Read more and watch the video at Think Progress

I love how folks like Akin use “free enterprise” as an excuse to be discriminatory. 

Technically, a truly free market would allow anyone to discriminate against whomever they please and not have to give a reason for it.

Which is exactly why the GOP has such a hard-on for it.

I think the GOP should just simplify and starting using “because freedoms” as an answer with the trusty backup, “Because I said so.”

A truly free market would never be free because humans will always cock it up with their incessant need to find loopholes and the lowest common denominator.

And then there’s this asshole (again)

Yep.

he was the least ridiculous. and he’s pretty fucking ridiclous

Mitt Romney was the least fucking ridiculous person the Republican Party could offer for this election.

Let that sink in.

I feel like he reined it just to get through the primary. Now he’s all like, “I’M THE NOMINEE HOMESLICE! I’M GONNA SAY WHAT I WANT!”

Then he does the Macarena and talks about how he wishes he were Latino.

True facts, y’all.

Well, this is awkward… Bill O’Reilly said: Planned Parenthood should “be funded like Catholic charities, by individuals who believe in Planned Parenthood’s mission.” Take a look at the organization Catholic Charities’ financial documents, and you’ll find that in 2010 62% of their total income was government revenue — $2.9 billion that year.



HMM.

See this comic book cover? It’s the first issue with Batman villain Bane. It’s from 1993. No big deal, right?
Wrong. If you’re El Rushbo, and your ratings have dipped, IT’S A GODDAMN CONSPIRACY FACTORY! Seriously. Here’s what Rush Limbaugh had to say:

Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bain?


Or maybe so. This one is just as ridiculous as the bithers. Maybe even more so — so now, super-villain evil genius time-traveler Kenyan Muslim usurper Barack Obama is now a comic book author and illustrator? All this about a guy the right-wing bitches is completely ineffective and can’t get anything done. Let me just say, for someone who can’t accomplish anything, Obama’s accomplished a lot. Gawker breaks it down:

Obviously, Limbaugh deserves to be commended for his groundbreaking work uncovering how in 1993, Obama convinced comic writer Chuck Dixon to create a super-villain named Bane, knowing that two decades later he would be locked in a close presidential election campaign with the obscure son of a moderate Republican governor, at the time making gobs of money in Boston.

Obviously. And I guarantee, there’s at least one dude swearing at work that the new Batman movie is Obama propaganda. 
Is Rush even trying any longer?

No, no, no. Let’s let it be a surprise.

the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. Our great country, is truly, sadly, and irreversibly headed in a downward spiral.

I hope all you fuckers are healthy and if you’re not, then get healthy before 2014 because after that, medical care is going down the shitter.

Enjoy the grave you’ve dug for yourselves all you bleeding heart liberal fucks, it’s a shame all the rest of us have to lie in it with you.

Yes, Breitbart editor-at-large, yes: guaranteeing that an insurance company can’t turn down your hard-working self-employed boat-mechanic dad for his congenital arrhythmia, thus ensuring that an unpreventable medical incident won’t bankrupt him and his future generations, is exactly like a discredited 1835 court opinion that black people are property.
