Re: node: Some Republicans favor significant economic freedoms,

Free market economic policies are the central plank in the Republican party platform. So most, if not all, Republicans favor economic liberalism in terms of the workings of the marketplace (not to be confused with their (formerly) equally held economic conservatism in terms of taxation, government spending and social safety nets)

That doesn't deserve a node, but I think you should edit this node to remove your "some" qualification

Re: node: True. But this argument is about the Republican party

smartypants - you're right. I misread the node to which I was responding. For some reason the "and that wing of the Republican party" part didn't register.

I'm deleting my node (which necessitates deleting your "True, but" node)

also see my comment regarding the "yes, but" node type in this Argument:

what do you think?
