    Why the Left can't get it Right
    Mark Alexander
    From Patriot Post Vol. 08 No. 29; Published 18 July 2008 | Print Email PDF

    Ask a liberal about some manifestation of his worldview -- for example, why he supports charlatans like Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Albert Arnold Gore, Jean-Francois Kerry, et al., and he invariably predicates his response with, "Because I feel..."

    Ask a conservative about what he believes, or why he does or doesn't support John McCain, and he invariably predicates his response with, "Because I think..."

    It has always been easier to "feel" rather than "think," and that is why our national culture, and by extension, national politics (see Democrat Party Platforms) reflect only the most rudimentary remnants of the guiding principles established by our Founders. Of course, though Republican Party Platforms are more consistent with our Founding principles, Ronald Reagan was the last Republican president to stand firmly in support of those principles.

    Liberalism tends to appeal to the worst of human instincts -- greed, envy, laziness, victimization and every line of division. Its practitioners appeal to constituent "feelings," and they thus convert emotions into political capital.

    Leftist pathology is deserving of its own category on the short list of personality disorders, and liberal politicians have one uniformly defining characteristic: hypocrisy.

    Liberal politicos advocate populist themes but are consummate elitists. They feign concern for the plight of the poor while hobnobbing with the richest of the rich. They are charitable with everyone's income but their own. They decry school vouchers yet send their children to the finest academies. They hate SUVs, unless they are expensive imports. They advocate mass transit but commute on private jets. They express concern for the homeless yet maintain multiple manors.

    So basically, liberals are idiots and conservatives are either liars or confused.

    But it's okay, because the conservatives thought about it first.

    You know better than that! I've been triangulating libertarianism from both the left and the right for many years now. :D

    Why isn't Feeb-ill in the Most Irritating poll?

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
