Liberals have ruined the American Spirit I grew up admiring. They have not accomplished this feat alone. They had help from an agenda driven media and weak-willed Republicans eager to cash in votes from fad politics. The American Spirit I grew up admiring included self-reliance, rugged individualism, and accountability for one’s actions.
Liberals replaced those traits with victimization, demagoguery against the wealthy, and a blameless sub-section of society. They disguise victimization as political correctness, wealth re-distribution as fairness, and compassion for creating blamelessness. Those in the mainstream media seize upon these talking points and shell-shocked Republicans co-op the ideas with the hope of looking less conservative.
I have no issue with a zealot Liberal providing he or she has the conviction to live what they say. If they truly believe the wealthy are to blame for the country’s woes then they should look in the mirror since most Liberals in congress and the senate are millionaires. Let’s see them give up 50 percent of their wealth to government programs for the poor.
A Liberal is a Liberal until something affects them; then they take on strikingly similar characteristics of the people the rail against and paint as evil. How many Liberal congressional representatives and senators shelter their wealth? A governing body that exempts itself from its own laws has no credibility.
Raise your hand if you want to be a racist, bigot, or sexist. Not many people aspire to that throne. Liberals will use those epithets against anyone who dares suggest people be held accountable for their actions.
Richard Sherman becomes a media darling when he opined the use of the word “thug” is an acceptable way of using the “N” word. Sherman may be a nice guy but he acted like a thug when thrashing Michael Crabtree after a football game. If he acted like a thug and poor winner people will call him that. If he wants to be known as anything else let him act it! Instead, Sherman wants the right to spout off but not the responsibility of the fallout. Life doesn’t work that way.
Liberals portray wealthy Americans as greedy capitalists willing to step on the little guy to make an extra buck. How is that characterization of a certain portion of our population any different than stereotypes of African Americans, Italians, Hispanics, or any other ethnic group? For that matter, how is the characterization of those on foods stamps as lazy leaches any better?
The media chastises Conservatives for their portrayal of food stamp recipients but give Liberals a pass on their portrayal of wealthy Americans. Liberals infiltrated schools handcuffing teachers from truly assessing their students because we mustn’t make failing students feel bad. Is it better to make a child feel bad about failing a course or to start his downfall by not preparing him properly for life?
It seems to me the two political parties are broken. The Fourth Estate is still in a free fall blaming the Internet for its woes. Much like rich Liberals, those in media should look in the mirror to find the answer to their troubles. If the mainstream media actually reported the news objectively, the desire for an alternative would never have been born.
If Liberals would be open to alternative views versus forcing their views on the masses, the desire for an alternative would not grow. If “moderate” Republicans had a backbone and believed in their true views, there would be no Tea Party. The extremes are never the answer. Neither is the middle.
Life is cause and effect.
The big tent the Democrats live in cannot hold the extreme left and centrists. The Republican Party is going to implode before Conservatives and Moderates make nice. I think it’s time the country move to a three party system. The Conservatives can play on the Right; the Liberals on the Left, and Moderates/Independents in the middle. This way each party can put forth platforms their entire body can support. Let’s see who the American public really wants as leaders.
