The wonderful world of Liberal-Progressive Utopia, where everything is better thanks to the unlimited government, both in spending and authority, and getting “free” stuff compliments of those who pay the taxes and at higher rates on their earned income.
Saying that life is hard is kind of like saying the sun is hot, water is wet, or noting that politicians lie a lot. … That being said, life’s even harder when you’re working under false assumptions that have been drilled into you by your teachers, college professors, Hollywood, and politicians in D.C. Much of what liberalism drums into the young skulls full of mush simply isn’t true and millions of lives have been ruined by people finding it out the hard way.
The liberal-progressives would have you believe:
- We live in an “everybody’s a winner,” don’t use red ink, don’t offend anyone, participation trophies for everyone era where we build up self-esteem as much as possible.
- Young Americans are expected to pay into Medicare and Social Security, but the programs aren’t going to be there in their present forms when they get old enough to use them. In other words, we’re defrauding young Americans. … If young Americans would like to receive more than sack cloth and an occasional bowl of gruel from the government once they get long in the tooth, they should be demanding entitlement reform.
- Hollywood almost universally makes Christians look bad in TV shows and movies, liberalism has become reflexively hostile to Christianity, and militant atheists work overtime to attack people of faith. … That doesn’t mean all Christians are good and all atheists are bad because that’s certainly not true, but Christianity offers up a moral order to the universe that atheism is incapable of doing, by its very nature.
- As a general rule the more contact you have with a government, the more miserable you will be long term. Some politicians, government workers and well-connected corporations that land big contracts are exceptions to that rule, but you’re probably not in any of those groups. For you, the more the government gets involved in your life, the worse off you’ll be. … Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
- It’s ironic that Christianity is regularly attacked, it’s considered bad form to talk about morals, and we worry more about offending people than doing the right thing; yet we’re shocked at how degenerate our society has become. You want a society with no moral code, where no one is ever made to feel bad about doing disgusting things? Well, then you should expect school shootings, welfare fraud, a deterioration of marriage, women having five children out-of-wedlock with four different men, perverted politicians, etc., etc., etc.
- There really was a time in American history when the people and the government were living with one foot in the present and one foot in the future. As a practical matter, that just doesn’t happen anymore. Our political differences are so stark, our government is so big, our debt is so out of control and the quality of men the American people have sent to D.C. is so low that everything is about “the now.”
- There was a time in America when, “The world doesn’t owe you a living,” was probably the mother’s favorite phrase to repeat to her child after, “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it, too?” However, we’ve moved past that and now everyone seems to believe that if he gets a college degree, he’s owed a cushy, fulfilling job and all the cool stuff his parents had after a lifetime of work.
