Why Liberals Lie About What They Believe

Why Liberals Lie About What They Believe
By John Hawkins


Once you've watched liberals long enough to understand how they think -- scratch that, how they feel -- they become extraordinarily predictable.

To begin with, the liberal agenda is, in many respects, the same as it was in the thirties. Whether you call it communism, fascism, socialism, liberalism, or progressivism, the only real difference is how much they believe they can get away with, the way they sell it to people, and the latest trendy name for what they believe.

So, once the liberals pick a policy from their stale program to push, the next step is to get it implemented. This is where liberals have problems because whether a policy makes sense, is practical, or actually improves people's lives is of secondary importance to them. What is important to liberals is whether supporting or opposing that policy makes them feel good about themselves.

This is why liberals continue to support dysfunctional policies that have been failing miserably for decades and why they often oppose common sense programs that have been proven to work time and time again -- because it isn't about whether it works or not, it's about how it makes them feel.

And which is why they come across as teenagers...no matter if they are 19 or 59, they never grew up, and they run on emotion.
Oh, they also have never gotten it through their thick skulls that there is no such thing as "fairness"!
Life isn't "fair", deal with it!
Conservatives learned that lesson early...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

EXACTLY TMW! Every time I argue with a leftist I feel like I'm arguing with a child! These idiots don't think, they emote.
One of the saddest things in the world to do is to argue with a 50year old + leftist. Whether they like it or not, they champion a Totalitarian worldview that destroys individual freedom. The author of the article really nailed it!

Yes, such horrible failed policies like Social Security, Medicaid, OSHA, Head Start, and so many others.
