If anyone is "empiricists" it is definitely the liberals who think they know it all. They know so much they intend to tell everyone else what they can have, what kind of toilet, light bulbs, cars we can drive,and now, medical insurance. The list goes on and on. You see, people like you are not satisfied to just live your life and make your own decisions about your car, sugar and salt intake, or your health insurance. You decide what you want and then demand everyone else do the same. That is not freedom, that's tyranny. Gov. Palin brings up a valid point religiously and lawfully "Thou shalt not kill" and murder is a crime. That's what abortion is, murder. Just because you don't agree that doesn't make a fact not a fact.
