    I think it seems that both statues are a more peaceful vs. a more lively way. I like the statue of liberty because it's a feeling of peace and comfort.. but my heart will always be drawn to the female warrior.

    With the statues, the buddha is a more peaceful statue, whereas the Christ the Redeemer seems very forward and bold. I think I have no preference between the two, but since I'm in a bolder-mood today, I vote Christ the Redeemer.

Liberty? Please. That's why O.J. got off, why less than 5 white collar criminals of the nations biggest scandals (Enron, Tyco, Arthur Anderson, etc.) do any time in jail and still keep the money they stole from their shareholders, and why sentences for possession of crack are far more stringent than those for powdered cocaine. "Liberty and Justice for all...commensurate with how much money you have, what race you are, and who you know."

    Simple generalizations are naught but by the losers with no talent for flaming. Or "Simple insults created by simple minds." if the first line was a little over your head.

    Anyway I like how the Lantau Budda looks but I'm going to have to go with Christ the Redeemer based on what the statue stands for.
