The Liberal Conservative is back here at Liberal America! I won’t make a big to-do about it since I’m willing to wager most folks don’t remember me anyway. All you have to know is that I’m an Atheist and a fiscally conservative, socially liberal Republican who detests the Tea Party with a fiery passion. I […]

University Of Alabama’s Obama Comic: Racist Or Satire?

So another day,?another accusation of racism toward President Barack Obama. This time it comes courtesy of a comic published in the University Of Alabama’s college paper, The Crimson White.

Meet The Millionaire Who Wants To Raise The Minimum Wage

Meet The Millionaire Who Wants To Raise The Minimum Wage

We have a new hot-button political issue to talk about these days and it’s none other than the minimum wage. By and large Democrats are for a minimum wage hike and Republicans are starkly against it. Either way it’s hard to deny that the plight of the low-wage worker is a very real problem on […]

Creationist Teacher Fired In Ohio Has Termination Upheld

Creationist Teacher Fired In Ohio Has Termination Upheld

It would seem that nothing bothers the religious far-right more than having the U.S. Constitution thrown in their collective face. That was the case in Ohio’s Mt. Vernon City School District. John Freshwater was an eighth-grade science teacher at the district until he was terminated for what is being called “insubordination”.? You see, Mr. Freshwater […]

Atheists Show Christians How Charity Is Really Done

Atheists Show Christians How Charity Is Really Done

Christian Doctor Boasts About Breaking Abortion Law

Christian Doctor Boasts About Breaking Abortion Law

So we stumbled upon this article over at the Friendly Atheist just yesterday and we are absolutely dumbfounded.

Free AR-15 Magazines A ‘Reward’ For Voting In Virginia

Free AR-15 Magazines A ‘Reward’ For Voting In Virginia

The election held in Virginia this past Tuesday, to find the state a new governor, was a highly publicized affair that effectively put the Tea Party on trial, and at the end of the day, they were found guilty; barely. But that isn’t the only big news to come out of this election. The Capitol […]

West Point Academy And Children Are The New Champions For Gay Marriage

West Point Academy And Children Are The New Champions For Gay Marriage

Another day, another bit of ground my socially conservative Republican counterparts have lost on the gay marriage debate. This past Saturday, November 2, 2013 West Point Military Academy’s Cadet Chapel hosted the first ever male same-sex marriage ceremony. This follows two female same-sex marriages late in 2012. Needless to say, somebody at the academy has […]

Billionaire Apologizes For Wealth Accumulated ‘At Expense Of Workers’

Billionaire Apologizes For Wealth Accumulated ‘At Expense Of Workers’

It has been mentioned before here at the Liberal Conservative that this guy loves Pope Francis. The man is a self-aware, loving, kind, open-hearted, open-minded gentleman.
