"Maybe this hat will distract people from realizing that I hate America"
After reading Larry Elder's brilliant column this week about how the liberals are wrong and wrong often, I was inspired to tell my own experience with the liberals and why I think they are wrong. Have they ever been right? Well liberalism is not wrong in and of itself. Jesus may have been considered liberal. He made changes that shook society at its foundation, and he was killed for it. Liberalism changed society so that blacks could vote and be counted as humans. These and other issues are great. Liberalism must be a tool that changes society for the better. But not all change is good, and this is where the modern liberal joins the picture.
The modern liberal is generally a democrat that has opened his or her mind so much that their brains have fallen out and onto the floor. Dictionary.com describes liberalism as:
A political theory founded on the natural goodness of humans and the autonomy of the individual and favoring civil and political liberties, government by law with the consent of the governed, and protection from arbitrary authorityBut that is either an old description or just a really biased one because today's liberalism is nothing more than hedonism, humanism and socialism with all of their boundaries running together. The funny thing is that their "openmindedness" isn't really open at all. It's open until one veers from their path of thinking. For instance, This week the editor of Playgirl magazine was fired because she told the world that she voted republican. Keep in mind I do not endorse pornography of any sort. But the point remains that not thinking like a liberal can cause you to lose your job...Hardly openmindedness.
Liberals are wrong on several levels. For one, socialism and hedonism are terrible ideologies. But that of course is another post, a subject that could have books written about it. But mostly liberals are wrong because they don't even practice their own sermons. They are far from openminded. They will generally drop their openminded stance the second the find out that doing so may buy them an ounce of power. And power may be the one factor that drives liberal politicians to do what they do...The problem is that when power is an ends rather than a means it's society that falls on the losing end.
