Well, I agree with you. I enjoy talking about freedom and liberty. If everyone agreed all the time, the world would be very boring. I merely stated a passionate opinion, and ELJ had to jump in and say that I lack knowledge in the area of politics (an area I am extremely well-read and active in BTW), without stating any opinions or facts himself. I can only assume from that that he cannot speak intelligently about his opinions, or that, as is often the case, he has no clear and solid ideas of his own. If he would care to state an opinion rather than critisizing my own ides, he might be worthy of respect.
