As far as liberals are concerned, I generally don’t appreciate them and don’t socialize with them. I don’t like wasting my time hanging around people who (1) grossly overestimate their intelligence and wisdom, (2) actively lobby government to steal more and more of what I have earned, (3) support onerous regulations that make it almost impossible to start and run a small business, and (4) are willing to sacrifice the livelihoods of billions of the world’s people at the altar of specious concepts like climate change.
While scientists, engineers, mathematicians and philosophers spend their entire lives in the pursuit of truth (generally acknowledging that the more they learn, the more they realize how much more they need to learn), liberals are able to obtain pure truth about virtually everything somewhere between the ages of 20 and 50. Armed with their “Advanced Degrees”, liberals decide at a young age that they are experts on virtually everything including child development, climate theory, economics, and even how to run multinational corporations. This is, of course, utter nonsense.
Liberals want to steal from the successful (Rich) because they are either envious of the success of producers, or desire to covertly steal from producers using their good friends in government. If envy is the motive, liberals are insecure children. If theft is the motive, liberals are….OK, I’ll say it…. thugs.
I know a conservative person who has many liberal friends. She tells me that “there is some good in everyone.” I fail to find much good in people who are intellectually cocky, steal from me, make it hard for me to run a business and employ others, and otherwise harass and befuddle almost anyone who wants to accomplish anything in this world. We are increasingly living in a regulatory environment in the United States where almost everything a person wants to do is illegal. If it is legal it requires government privilege, a permit, or a license; all of which add costs to literally everything we buy.
My frustration with liberals has one silver lining; with liberals everything is a crusade. They are wrong, but passionately so. While I occasionally lose sleep trying to figure out how to make my enterprises survive the liberal onslaught, the sleep of liberals is haunted every night as they worry about endangered species and global warming! Have you ever wondered why liberals in their fifties and sixties look so worn out and old? They’re trying to solve the problems of the universe! The women have mousy grey hair and dress like misfits from the 60’s. The men look gaunt and lifeless. If the “gaunt and lifeless” characterization doesn’t ring a bell, just conjure up a likeness of John Kerry and you’ll be there!
I suppose that Liberals get old before their time worrying about the straw men (global warming, environmental catastrophe) that they have created! Conservatives, on the other hand, look better and healthier than liberals of the same age. Contrast two women of about the same age, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush.
While liberals look worn out, they seem to live as long as conservatives. While you would think that night after night of restless sleep would cause a liberal die much younger, they are spared by the fact that most of them have secure government jobs. Conservatives don’t lose sleep about global warming, but are worn down more quickly over their lifetimes by something that Liberals normally disdain….the fatigue of work and the stress of financial risk.
You may wonder whether this blog was written tongue and cheek…..it isn’t. Liberals proudly advertise their “collective conscience” and their “progressive ideology”. A capitalist can trade only through voluntary exchange; his world is characterized by free will. The Liberal, using government as his tool, is the brute of society; his world characterized by coercion and force.
