I then decided that I had better come up with a better reason as to why I didn't care much for liberals. Just saying, "They're a bunch of Jerks," or "They are all a bunch of ass holes," wasn't going to get it. The following is my effort.
In the interest of fairness, it is important to note that both the left and the right are guilty of manipulation of the language. None of these guys are innocent. The essence of the problem and the true offence is the utter contempt in which they hold for us.
Why do I dislike Liberals so much? For the same reason that I dislike hypocrites, phonies and frauds. Even criminals hate a liar and a thief. Before I go any further I need to clarify my understanding of the term used to distinguish people with a liberal ideology. When we look at the dictionary definition (thank you very much), of a liberal we are told that they are favorable to progress or reform. In reality the professed liberals work tirelessly to destroy and dismantle the fabric of society. The dictionary goes on; “favoring freedom of actions, open minded, tolerant, generous and in favor of maximum individual freedom secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.” Sounds pretty good, right? What’s not to like here? Perhaps the folks that I dislike intensely have been mislabeled. Are they Leftists? Marxist? Socialist? You think?
Let’s look at the behavior of these lost souls. They campaign, protest and lobby for tolerance of their beliefs and life-styles while working equally hard to destroy the life-style and belief system of those with which they disagree. For example:
A. Removal of all references to a supreme deity from any public place. The “liberals” have been successful in making it almost impossible to celebrate Christmas without censure in the name of not offending non-Christians while at the same time have made it possible for all forms of deviant behavior to parade before the public.
B. Liberal democracy a form of government based on limited majority rule. I guess that I must be a little dense on this one, how can it be termed a democracy and limit the will of the majority? I guess that explains why a relatively small segment of society can dictate school policy, federal mandates, state and local laws and impact the lives of the majority.
C. While claiming to be open minded, the “liberal” will reject and attempt to prohibit any and all expression of thought that is not part of their liberal ideology. They have made it possible for one to open an adult book store (porn store) within sight of a church or school but if anyone protests, they are in danger of being prosecuted for hate speech.
D. Freedom of religion has been perverted into freedom from religion. No prayer in school, that is no Judeao Christian prayer to be exact. Special accommodations are made for the frequent daily prayers of the followers of Islam.
E. I have often wondered how the liberals could justify and reconcile killing a baby as it was being born in the afternoon and then stand outside a prison all night for a candle light vigil to protest the execution of a convicted and admitted murderer. I now think I understand, they identify and relate to the murderer, they are kindred spirits. That was too easy. How could I have missed something that obvious?
My God, why can’t they see the results of their defective belief system and ill-conceived actions? Have they not been exposed to the history of the world? They do not seem to have the faintest understanding of natural law. They appear completely ignorant to the realities of cause and effect and seem to blatantly ignore the fact that ALL actions have consequences. If they could only be made to see the unintended consequences in all of these liberal actions. But that would require developing a manner of living that demanded rigorous honesty.
Liberals tend to fall into two categories: the ignorant and the evil. They both hide in the gray areas. Their ideology is not based on or backed by facts. Too general and simplistic you might say. Well, when you shine enough light on something there are no shadows. When you strip away the rhetoric etc. etc. everything is simple and specific. If one has a clear view and the mind is not clouded by erroneous and misguided thinking, there are no gray areas and everything becomes binary, True or false, black or white, yes or no. Remove all the rhetorical nonsense and illogical thinking and it is all true or false.
“Liberals” have a sound bite ideology but have no philosophy. *
Let’s first look at the first of these two categories; the ignorant. These unfortunate people have been seduced into a pattern of thinking that allows them to believe that they know what is best for everyone else. They seem to believe that personal liberty absolves them from any personal accountability. These so called “liberals” have sound bite ideology but have no philosophy. They work hard for change in the lives of others while striving to insure that their life is not affected. When questioned about their ideology, rather than respond with a coherent idea or concept they usually react by blaming Bush, the GOP, FOX News or the Oil Companies for all their misery. They whine on endlessly about utopia and how it ought to be and don’t have a clue about the realities of cause and effect. They much prefer to regurgitate the latest talking points generated by the NPR, Harry Reid and that deep thinker, Stuart Smalley. All hat and no cattle. This bunch of folks are really dangerous to the very fabric of society because they mean well and don’t have a clue, like a four year old in a crowded room with a loaded shotgun.
The second grouping is much easier to describe while being much more difficult to identify. Evil is always cunning, seductive and sly. These individuals know exactly what it is that they intend to accomplish. They are the elitists that intend to control and enslave all of humanity. They masquerade in the guise of “social liberals”. Do you need a history lesson for examples?
The liberal (or leftist or socialist) ideology promotes the assumption of self-assertion while tearing down the ideals of self-control or self-accountability. There is no error greater than that species of self-deception, which leads intelligent beings to crave the exercise of power over other beings for the purpose of depriving these persons of their natural liberties. The golden rule of human fairness cries out against all such fraud, unfairness, and selfishness. How dare anyone to encroach on the rights of their fellows in the name of promoting a self-serving “Liberal agenda”.
I hope that my rambling response in some way explains my behavior and perhaps give you a window into my personal philosophy. I am firm in my convictions and will remain loyal to my principles. I frankly do not know where you stand on these issues for we have never had “that discussion”. At least you now have a better idea of where I stand.
I will close with this offering: Reject any idea, concept or program that is not consistent with Goodness, Truth, and Beauty. This is a foolproof yardstick for evaluating any and all human thought and endeavor. Is it true? Is it Good? And is it Beautiful? If the answer to any of the questions is no or I’m not sure, then the idea being considered has not measured up and should be rejected.
* I also want to acknowledge the creative input of my Bro. Dave. He made the comment about the liberal’s lack of a philosophy that was the seed for this epistle. Any time that I have needed to do any serious digging, he has always been there to hold the light.
