If you must hate, know what you're hating

A liberal isn’t necessarily someone who rejects responsibility, just someone who believes that freedom is of greater importance; a natural or divine birthright which may often have to be defended or restored, but only in exceptional cases earned or justified.
A conservative isn’t necessarily someone who’s opposed to freedom, just someone who believes that unappreciated freedom will inevitably be lost; and that appreciation requires an investment of effort, and thus, a sense of responsibility.
We can’t always help how we feel, but if we’re going to hate, we should at least know what we’re hating.
