Did you ever wonder why people who support liberalism think that this flawed philosophy is good for us all?
Even when this philosophy has been demonstrably, historically proven to fail wherever it has been implemented? Throughout the history of mankind?
I am taken aback at how people can think this way all the time. I have met many well-off, relatively wealthy folks who are completely enamored with liberalism and its leaders. They themselves are not the benefactors of liberal politics which yield food stamps, welfare checks, Obama phones and rent controlled hovels.
These people are living large primarily because they worked at high paying jobs, saved their money that was not taxed away from them, invested it (and paid taxes yet again on any capital gains yielded from these investments). And these liberals don't give it a second thought of the tax rates the rest of us also put up with, and the rampant wasted spending that Congress winds up doing with this tidal wave of confiscated tax money.
These very same people also paid accountants to ensure that they were not paying one single dime more in taxes than is absolutely required by law, not a penny more.
And yet these very same people think that we all should be taxed even more to support the unfortunate among us. You know, the bums, alcoholics, drug addicts, and general lowlifes that don't have what they themselves enjoy in life.
According to these high living liberals, that's just not right. That's just not fair. And they will vote in as many liberals as they can that get up on the campaign stump and promise to make things right. Make things fair, it's only the decent thing to do, vote for me, vote for fairness.
Everyone should enjoy the finer things in life, they insist. Why should only a tiny minority of people dine on caviar and truffles, while the great majority eat out of dumpsters? Why should only a small minority of Americans live on the beach, drive Ferrari's and Bentley s and light their imported hand rolled cigars with $20 bills?
It's just not fair. So let's all make it fair. That is to say, they want their neighbors to pony up to make things fair for everyone and jack up their taxes, put limits on their freedoms and do it that way. No, no, these limousine liberals will not kick in a dime of their own to see to it that fairness reigns. Not on your life. That's the rest of us tax payer's responsibility, not theirs.
They think that to ensure fairness through out our society, we ALL need to kick in and help those less fortunate than they are. But don't pass that hat THEIR way, they have their yacht payments to deal with, you see. They have their elite club memberships to service, and their mansion groundskeepers to support.
These liberal phony baloney hypocrites think that they are doing their part to lessen the misery and unfairness in our society by voting in liberal politicians that will see to it that their neighbors cough up the trillions it will take to make things right.
Just don't darken their liberal doorstep with your collection plate, you just better take it across the street where the money should rightly come from; not them.
I will never understand these liberal people. And there are millions of 'em. Millions and millions of these generous liberals out there. Generous to a fault with the money of others.
