Liberal-Progressives Can’t Handle the Truth
Each day we strive to make our personal lives a little bit better by working to earn what we can in order to use that reward to gain our dreams. For most of us it began the day we started living our own lives, out from under the shadow of our parents. We knew that our dreams were now truly our own and reaching them was by following the paths of our own choice. What we achieve is by using our own sweat equity. That’s the opportunity we all have equally – or is it? Enter, stage left, the liberal-progressive.
The liberal-progressive wants to “save” the world for the “greater good” of us all. To that end they support strong, ever-expanding, government to make the nation a better place for all. To that end they demand government relieve you of your earnings in order to fund programs to reach the greater good. Unfortunately they care not the impact this has on the middle class and how they’re destroying that very middle class to expand their demands on each of us. The liberal-progressive destroys the middle class by taking your efforts and distributing it to the lower classes in order to provide them with a “better” life, yet in doing so drag that middle class down to achieve their leftist goals.
Their argument is that the wealthy upper class should have more of their wealth taken through taxation to use to expand the handouts for those “less fortunate.” The funny thing is that this doesn’t matter to the upper wealthy classes as they will be in control of the redistribution of the wealth of the middle classes to the lower classes. The wealthy class will shift the burdens of any expanded taxation onto the middle class, which preserves their wealth for the most part and allows them to retain the control over the government they have always been able to maintain with money. They, after all, have the ability to remove their wealth beyond the reaches of government.
There will never be a fair and equitable redistribution since the only way the liberal-progressive can achieve their ideals is through the expansion of government involvement in order to compel the “compassion” of the middle class to care for the less fortunate. The ideals are incompatible with individual choice and freedom and therefore must be forced upon society. Yet all the liberal-progressives end up creating are a larger entitlement “class,” which takes more and more resources of the disappearing middle class to fund. The liberal-progressive is not honest enough to admit the truth of the outcome of their ideals, so will invoke some moral philosophy claiming that a responsibility exists for the greater good of society.
What a liberal-progressive calls freedom is nothing more than tyranny. To them freedom is granted by government, not an inalienable right from any Creator. You, as an individual, are only free to exercise your efforts on behalf of another – many of whom will accept all the system has to offer and demand more. The liberal-progressive will agree to give more through government. They will take no action to compel one to stop taking and make themselves productive for their own welfare. The liberal-progressive will continue to allow continual waste, fraud and abuse of the government entitlement system by refusing any limitations on the largess of the “providers” to the financial entitlements. Oh, they’ll claim reform is necessary, but somehow they lack any concrete plans to implement to insure any real reform occurs.
In the end a liberal-progressive is no more than a parasite, sucking the very life out of individuals and societies. The liberal-progressive is an anathema to freedom and liberty, being nothing more than a cancer than should be ruthlessly cut out of a society to prevent that cancer from destroying all it infects. Now, before everyone gets into a tizzy and decides I’m calling for violent action against liberal-progressives, I will speak to how this cancer needs to be removed.
Liberal-progressives can be placed into reality check by refusing to allow the expansion of government. Instead citizens should reduce government, even when the liberal-progressive screams about how that will deny some people their “rights” to a better life – even on another’s dime. Once reduced in size and scope then government needs restrictive barriers put into force clearing defining its role and the limits of the role. Preventing un-checked expansion under misconstrued definitions of law, whether through liberal-progressive political persuasion or by the courts, will better the opportunities for your efforts to aid you in achieving your goals for your life. That’s how we eradicate the cancer of the liberal-progressive and their freedom stealing agendas.
Removing their skewed beliefs that the greater good is best served by compelling others, through government, to give of their efforts for the betterment of the lesser fortunate is an unacceptable demand on the individuals who work tirelessly to reach their own life goals.
