Why is being liberal bad?

109 posts in this topic

No it won't happen but it is a good idea. I know I would rather choose a person based on what they believe rather then what their party tells them to believe

Balancing the power is the only best logical first step. Thats minus a civil war. So yeah we as voters hold our own future in our votes. Unfortunately the campaign to marginalize third party candidates is heavy handed.

In the absence of an ideal world we should do the next best thing. And that would be more than just two options when voting.

Why is being Liberal bad? Liberalism (Progressivism) says that the government must spend other people’s money to take care of the rest. At first that doesn’t sound that bad but it is short sighted as it is unsustainable and creates dependency. In an attempt to make it sustainable, the government must gain more and more control over the population eventually dictating to them what is good for them and how much. This is basically Socialism, sacrificing for the benefit of the collective. But this always leads to the hive mentality which becomes easily controlled by a few. This is not what humans were made for. We are all individuals with free will. We are not bees or ants. This is what is bad about being a Liberal.

Although, this is the way humans lived in the past. It should stay in the past. Man should evolve to bigger and better things. We were made as individuals that live in a community. The social aspects are controlled by the interactions of individuals, not dictated by government. By doing what the individual does best, which is taking care of himself and his family (his own self interest), that benefits the whole in a sustainable manner. Our Founding Fathers saw the evils of the hive mentality and created the Constitution to prevent the government from being in such a position of power over the people. We have been losing that separation because people are asleep. A people that have been given freedom, take it for granted and really do not understand the price for which it was bought. Is it going to take another revolution to return to the original concept of the Constitution?

At the minimum, there should at least be 4 differently labeled groups, at least in the U.S.

1) Fiscally liberal, socially liberal

2) Fiscally liberal, socially conservative

3) Fiscally conservative, socially conservative

4) Fiscally conservative, socially liberal

That’s a good division. This country is in its 5th political party system and this current one is failing. It just doesn’t meet our needs. So is it time for a new two-party system? I think one can be developed from the above categories. #4 would be what I would call Libertarian, which I think I fall under. That would be one party. #3 is obviously the Conservative party. This nation desperately needs to return to conservative values – PERIOD! Now, I don’t believe that #2 really exists. It defeats the purpose of one or the other. And #1 is Socialism or Totalitarianism or Oligarchy or what ever term you want to use. At this stage, it really doesn’t matter which one is used. This one should never be allowed to gain control because it natural deteriorates the nation in which it is in control of. So you’re left with #3 & #4. They would be equivalent to what we know as Republican and Democrat (before Progressivism took over the Democrat party).

In my opinion, being Progressive can be a bad thing if you're on the extreme Left. But being on the far Right can be equally as bad.

I don't agree with Progressives on some issues; gun control, gay marriage, etc.

However, I try to live by Voltaire's creed, "I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend your right to say it."

I just dislike the apparent Progressive/Liberal bias in the media; news should be about reporting the accuracy of instances.

Not some propagandized, preconceived agenda where they focus on one subject and reiterate stances on one side of the political spectrum.

CNN is a good example of this with articles like, "One way to defeat the NRA" or "NRA's paranoid fantasy flouts democracy".

The intentionally forget to say we're a representative Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy.

Of course, there are other articles that have to do with the other side of the argument, in the case of Gun Control as a topic, for example.

However, generally on websites like CNN, MSNBC, they focus on the agenda; manipulate popular opinion, not report with integrity.

I don't believe all Liberals are bad.

I just believe the way the Liberal media is making out Conservatives to be heartless, soul sucking, gun loving extremists is unfair.

Now if everyone who called themselves a libertarian actually voted libertarian, this world would be a better place.

Political parties all stink throughout once they get a big enough whiff of themselves, and the L party is no exception. Oh that Bob Barr was such a wonderful candidate let me tell ya!

Two different words, libertarian and Libertarian (party). If I had voted for the Libertarian party, I'd have been voting for global policy that threatens American independence like NAFTA, NAU, WTO, CAFTA, GATT, UN, et al. Threatening American independence and centralizing power shouldn't be libertarian, but sadly, it is Libertarian.

I don't see what the left-right division is about either, on any political party all that means pragmatically is a difference in spending priorities. Which is somewhat healthy to have because all politics really is, is deciding how someone else's money gets spent. Libertarians want to do more with less, not more with more. And that distinguishes them from their counterparts considerably, considering the debt and deficit we're much too approving of these days. So from a fiscal standpoint you're right. But does that mean we're going to get truly libertarian ideals in all of their party platform decisions? Not even close.

If I have to identify with a political party at this late hour in the game it's the Constitution party hands down.
