4) Liberals are big believers in moral relativism. This spins them round and round because if the only thing that's wrong is saying that there's an absolute moral code, then you lose your ability to tell cause from effect, good from bad, and right from wrong. Taking being non-judgmental to the level that liberals do leaves them paralyzed, pondering "why they hate us" because they feel incapable of saying, “That's wrong," and doing something about it. If you're against firm standards and condemning immoral behavior, then your moral compass won’t work and you’ll also be for immorality, as well as societal and cultural decay by default.
"For liberals, it's not what a program does in the real world; it's about whether they feel better about themselves for supporting it."
Um how many Christians give to charity just because it makes them feel good and scores brownie points with the almighty?
I betting a rather large portion of them.
People rarely do something just because its the good thing to do. Its all about personal satisfaction.
Oh Thatsabsurd you copy and pasting fiend!
7 Reasons Why Liberals Are Incapable of Understanding The World John Hawkins | Aug 23, 2011
Ok R1KRA8 come on down out of the woodwork or out from your trollish home amidst the roots of a tree and chastise Thatsabsurd for plagiarism.
Oh will you?
Or will you just...let....it...goooo!
even though millions of people have died as a result. For liberals, it's not what a program does in the real world; it's about whether they feel better about themselves for supporting it.
and then turn on the nightly news which also skews leftward. From there, they turn on TV and watch shows created by liberals that lean to the left, if they have any political viewpoint at all. Unless liberals actively seek out conservative viewpoints, which is unlikely, the only conservative arguments they're probably going to hear are going to be through the heavily distorted, poorly translated, deeply skeptical lens of other liberals.
3) Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results. Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves, not whether it works or not. Thus a program like Headstart, which sounds good because it's designed to help children read, makes liberals feel good about themselves, even though the program doesn't work and wastes billions. A ban on DDT makes liberals feel good about themselves because they're "protecting the environment" even though millions of people hav
1) Liberalism creates a feedback loop. It is usually impossible for a non-liberal to change a liberal's mind about political issues because liberalism works like so: only liberals are credible sources of information. How do you know someone's liberal? He espouses liberal doctrine. So, no matter how plausible what you say may be, it will be ignored if you're not a liberal and if you are a liberal, of course, you probably agree with liberal views. This sort of close-mindedness makes liberals nearly impervious to any information that might undermine their beliefs.
2) Liberals sources of information are ever present. Conservatives are regularly exposed to the liberal viewpoint whether they want to be or not. That's not necessarily so for liberals. Imagine the average day for liberals. They get up and read their local newspaper. It has a liberal viewpoint. They take their kids to school, where the teachers are liberal. Then they go to work, listen to NPR which has a liberal viewpoint on
Bill Clinton on ordinary Americans: "African Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do."
John Kerry on the troops: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
ok, clearly you just wish to be obstinate. Fine I will let it go and ignore you like everyone else, just hoped you had more to offer. My Bad.
Just hoping you can offer some original thought versus your chronic copy and paste. Do you have some original thoughts to share, please do.
R!K surely you have something to add other than copy and paste and this silly insistence that Kendall is a liar. Come on Carl, you better than this.
I don't think he'll ever go away Tired. He has to look up "pyrrhic victory" first.
If that does not work, admit your part in the Kennedy assassination, admit that you harbor Jimmy Hoffa in the basement, and that you really hate puppies.
Kendall, why don't you just admit that you told the great lie of the century. Further admit that you misspoke and that 99.9999% of R1Ks copy and pastes are ignored. Maybe then he will go away with his little pyrrhic victory. Just a thought.
So you still think letters to the editor are equal to articles by published writers eh? Ok.
"as he responds to the following headline . . ."
Oh my gosh you are disturbed or something. I make a comment about no one reading the headlines you copy/paste on here and you go all wierd when I comment on a Letter to the Editor.
You know the difference between a letter to an editor of our local papers and the headlines you copy/paste from other sites right? I mean, if you want to say that a letter to the editor is the equivelent of a headline from a major newspaper..I'm sure Fred and other letter writers will take that as praise.
One fact that cannot be denied, regardless of party, our government will always use the public trough to promote their own self intrests.
Well I should qualify that. Those that paid in have skin in the game, sadly there are many that never did
That is why we must get out government back to the local level. I don't see social security as socialism as you have suggested. Social security was paid into by force of law. Those that collect it do in fact have skin in the game albeit forced.
"Socialism offers nothing but survival, Capitalism while not perfect offers opportunity."
I agree with that. And what makes our nation so good is that we have been able to adapt some socialistic aspects into our culture, not rely upon pure capitalism but still benefit from the opportunities capitalism offers.
