I Came across a liberal article today that was steeped in total and utter ignorance "Top ten Reasons why liberals are better than conservatives." HAH! After two years of Obama and the Democrats, you must be blind not to see the fallacy of this statement. Add to this the trashing of our constitutional rights by Democrats for decades.
With this in Mind, I decided to refute it with something of my own. Why Liberals are really WORSE than Conservatives. BTW, this guy claims to be centrist. He certainly is not.
10) Liberals prefer to be sensitive to the issues of various groups of people, while conservatives deride sensitivity as “political correctness.” (“Macaca,” anyone?)
Political correctness is in reality cultural Marxism. Its used by liberals to silence opposing views about certain aberrations found in cultures groups and ideas. An example is Militant Islam. It is illegal in Liberal Europe to criticize Islam because that is hate speech. Ironically it is not illegal for Muslims to advocate killing non Muslims.
9) Conservatives prefer cutting taxes on the wealthy even if it creates deficits. Liberals believe in paying for what you spend.
Liberals like Obama in the mean time just spend spend spend spend. Real conservative cut taxes AND spending.
8)Conservatives prefer to thumb their noses at the rest of the world. Liberals remember that America is the leader of a community of nations.
Pointing out how the values and beliefs of other nations create more problems as opposed to the judeo Christian morals we were founded on is not thumbing our noses. Europeans have been attacking us since our founding in order to discredit our constitutional and Christian philosophies as opposed to their views of absolutionism.
7) Conservatives prefer to shoot first and ask questions later. Liberals prefer to ponder the long-term consequences of their actions before using force..
Liberals never considered the consequences of gun control, speech codes, high taxes and regulations then and despite the fact they failed still wont consider it.
6) Conservatism cares most about what is best for the individual, and is therefore inherently a selfish philosophy. Liberalism cares most about what’s best for society and the environment as a whole.
In other words, it is selfish to allow John Q Taxpayer to have the right to decide how to run his business and his household and keep what he has earned but not selfish for society to grab away his money property and what he owns, boss him around in running his business and as a result cause him and his family to become homeless and destitute. Neither is it selfish for 51% to oppress the other 49% for whatever reason even deciding that they no longer have the right to live. This is Socialism. This group mentality of taking away other people's property and redistributing it IS completely selfish and disrespectful.
For a few examples, Zimbabwe Africa and its policy of confiscating land for the greater good, An attempt by liberals to limit personal rights of those who no longer want to live in a blue state for economic reasons And using government programs to confiscate money from society's weakest Individuals who are elderly or disabled. Using SSI among other things.
This is why liberalism creates poverty and fails everywhere. Because rights to own property and rights of the individual are not respected. This By the way is one of the foundations of fascism. Individualism as opposed to collectivism is the opposite of selfishness.
5) Conservatives prefer to prey on the environment for the sake of industry. Liberals understand that without a healthy planet and environment there can BE no industry.
Well there's nothing necessarily wrong with that but the environmentalists tend to put the welfare of weeds bugs and owls over the welfare of human beings and their jobs. A healthy planet is useless if you are starving, unemployed and sick from preventable diseases like malaria.
4) Conservatives want to legislate morality to other people who may not share their views. Liberals prefer to live and let live.
This is totally outrageous. First of all Liberals Never in history want to live and let live. Just look at the examples above to see why. Liberals want the government to decide what's best for us and every time in history that has happened it has failed. Conservatives meanwhile are legislating morality that is sensible and respects the rights of the individual.
3) Conservatives believe that majority rules. Liberals understand that the Bill of Rights was crafted to protect minorities from the predations of majorities.
This is Backwards. Its liberals who want the majority to decide whats best. remember all that talk he just gave us about how individualism is selfish as opposed to collectivism?
2) For conservatives, religion and politics are like bread and butter. For liberals, they are like oil and water.
Real conservatives don't want to merge religion and government but to keep religion completely separate is a bad idea. If there is no supreme being then there is no absolutes and if there are no absolutes then there is no law or morality. This can explain why we have so much crime and corruption.
And the top reason in my mind why conservatism is backwards and Luddite:
1) Conservatives prefer looking to the past for guidance on solving today’s problems. Liberals understand that times change and often require new approaches to problems not envisioned by our forefathers.
Which can be summed with this. Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. But suddenly that is now luddite. the values our founders gave us work. The few changes made to the constitution since were based on the same founding principles. Up until recently when liberals began taking over.
The Author should thank people like us for not going off the cliff like all the other nations like in Europe which as a result of ignoring Judeo Christian principles in favor of socialism suffered from wars, famines, holocausts and tyrannical governments. If not for Conservatives he would be in a sweatshop, in a gas chamber or lined up against the wall facing a firing squad. All I might add "for the good of society" just like he himself preaches.
On top of that he adds something else
I also can’t help but toss in one last one for the sake of humor:
0.5) Have you ever known anyone “hip” who was a conservative?
Ad hominem. Hollywood is controlled by Marxists. celebrities that come out in favor of the values of liberty and freedom like Kirk Cameron, Charlton Heston, Carrie Prejean ETC do so usually at the end of their careers or at their own peril and by doing so brings an end to it. Liberals by their nature are the biggest discriminators in the country. Even hillbilly racists in Jim Crow south were as ill tempered or abhorrent as Hollywood leftists.
So there you have it. Another example of the foolishness and vanity of liberalism.
