20 Obvious Truths That Will Shock Liberals

Posted by   + Show Post

 

 


1) The Founding Fathers were generally religious, gun-toting small government fanatics who were so far to the Right that they'd make Ann Coulter look like Jimmy Carter.


2) The greatest evil this country has ever committed isn't slavery; it's killing more than 50 million innocent children via abortion.


3) Conservatives are much more compassionate than liberals and all you have to do to prove it is look at all the studies showing that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals do.


4) When the Founding Fathers were actually around, there were official state religions and the Bible was used as a textbook in schools. The so-called "wall of separation between church and state" has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with liberal hostility to Christianity.


5) The biggest problem with our economy today is Barack Obama. His demonization of successful people, his driving up gas prices, his regulatory overload and threats to increase taxes have terrified businesses into hunkering down, refusing to spend money, and declining to hire new people. Replacing him would do more than any government policy to spur economic growth.


6) Not only are conservatives more patriotic than liberals, but most American liberals "love" America in about the same way that a wife-beater loves his wife.


7) Out of every 100 cries of “Racism” you hear these days, 99 are motivated by nothing other than politics.


8) Anyone paying income taxes is certainly paying his “fair share" -- and then some -- compared to the people who pay.nothing.


9) You don't have a "right" to anything that other people have to pay to provide for you.


10) If we can ask people to present an ID to buy alcohol, drive a car, or get on an airplane, then asking them to present identification to vote is a no-brainer.


11) There's absolutely nothing that the government does smarter, better, or more efficiently than the private market with roughly equivalent resources.


12) The biggest problem with education in this country is liberals. They fight vouchers, oppose merit pay, refuse to get rid of terrible teachers, and bend over backwards to keep poor kids trapped in failing schools.


13) Fascism, socialism, and communism are all left-wing movements that have considerably more in common with modern liberalism than modern conservatism.

14) The Democratic Party was behind slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. It was also the party of Margaret Sanger, George Wallace, and Bull Connor. It has ALWAYS been a racist party. Even today, white liberals support Affirmative Action and racial set-asides because they still believe black Americans are too inferior to go up against whites on an even playing field.

15) A man with good morals who falls short and becomes a hypocrite is still a far better man than a liberal who can never be called a hypocrite because he has no morals at all.

16) The most dire threat to America’s future and prosperity in the last 150 years hasn’t been the Nazis, the Soviets, or Al-Qaeda;, it’s the spending and overreach of our own government.

17) Greed isn’t someone wanting to keep more of what he earns; it’s people demanding a greater share of money that someone else earns.

18) Most of the time in American politics, the liberal “victim” is really a bad guy who is absolutely delighted by the opportunity to pretend to be “offended.”

19) Jesus Christ was not a conservative, a liberal, or a politician. He was also not a capitalist or a socialist. Still, you can say this: Jesus drew sharp lines about what’s right and wrong, He wasn’t tolerant of what the Bible categorizes as sinful behavior, and there’s absolutely no question that He would adamantly oppose abortion and gay marriage.

20) When you demand that other people fund your sexual escapades by buying your contraception, your sex life becomes their business.

Thanks for your post... finally found some others with values that are close to mine. Thank goodness I haven't seen name calling or the childish replies that I found on some of the other post where the issues mostly seem to bring our the liberal leaning people. I was so disgusted with most of the post that I almost regretted joining cafemom. I thought that I had gotten on a liberal website. I am Independent but mostly believe in conservative values and let others believe theirs. I just get sick of name calling and people who cannot accept others beliefs without getting personal and ugly.

Yes, I admit that I am greedy. This is why I bust my ass daily in my business. I have a desire to provide for my family. And have the lifestyle that we want. Not what some jackass in DC thinks we should have. I happen to enjoy my month long vacation every year!

Quoting autodidact:

wrong. 

: a selfish and excessive desire for more of something (as money) than is needed 

Quoting tnmomofive:

17) Greed isn’t someone wanting to keep more of what he earns; it’s people demanding a greater share of money that someone else earns.


Imo that is the worst kind of greed out there.

Why do some people like to pretend that the income taxed at 13% is the same as the same income taxed at 30%?

Why do some people like to pretend that the only tax or charge that transfers money from individuals to the state is federal income tax?

Because with ObamaCare, you need to prove you are alive. Dead is the only pre existing condition that ObamaCare doesn't cover.

Quoting SeakingPeace:

And how about THIS: Why is it that when I go to the doctor and want to take advantage of my new Obamacare insurance, I MUST show Id? But to VOTE for Obamacare, I DIDN'T need to show ANYTHING?

Quoting tnmomofive:

10) If we can ask people to present an ID to buy alcohol, drive a car, or get on an airplane, then asking them to present identification to vote is a no-brainer.




Absolutely..and if one is so sure their candidate will win then why shouldn't mandatory presentation of ID be required?

There is Obama's base!

Quoting Canvas_says:

Actually there are more african americans using welfare than whites, and that's astounding given that they only account for 12% of the population while Whites accout for about 73%

Quoting sheila28804:

This is the kind of writing that divides the country, assumming that all liberals think alike and that all Demcrats are liberal.  You pose yourself as an intelligent person but most of your statements are opinions and not fact.  You really need to check your research.  The demographics of the Democratic include the most religious and the most educated secular of the population and in addition has the most diverse religions in the country.  The Republic parth is very homogeneous and is made up mostly of Christians.  This list could easily be turned the other way.  Why don't you use your intelligence to bring everyone together instead of just dividing everyone with your biased criticisms of what you think.  You should note that the most democratic counties in the US are also the most educated.  Also note that there are more caucasion republicans on welfare than democratic african americans.  Please state facts next time.

The possibility of them staying the same or being worse off is very real.  Why?  Because of the regulations that were not in place from the Bush era on back.  You can thank 2 unfunded wars, unfunded tax cuts and Reaganomics for that.  The really sad part about all of this, the recession simply compounded the problem.  It already existed it just went ignored.  With middle class jobs disappearing due to the advances of technology (where once a person filled the seat now a machine does the job) it is unlikely that we will see a growing Middle Class like we did before.  Goodbye are the days where one person could work, buy a car and a house and retire at 65.

Well I think we need to make the poor richer but that doesn't mean we have to let the rich be poorer. It comes at the cost of the middle class. The middle class is shrinking and it has nothing to do the rich not paying a little more ( which would not help a whole lot given how few people are rich) there are a lot of rich people that at very generous with donations. Maybe they don't like the govt dictating where there hard earned money should go. Why fault them for that. There are rich and poor people in every country. What is the American dream is the middle class. All I want for my kids is a little better life than I had. They don't necessarily have to be rich but for the first time I actually feel they will be worse off.

It is only impossible if you decide it is. I busted my ass the past 10 years to get my business built up to where it is. I started with only $25 a week when I was a widowed mother of 2. During the last 10 years, I was also a sing mom of 4. Not 1 penny from the government! Last year, my annual net profit was just over $200,000. I have already past that this year. And no one is entitled to any of that money, except for my family. We donate 25% of income to various charities. And donate 100 bars of soap a month to womens' shelters. And I volunteer my time on a weekly basis. When Joplin got hit, I sent 500 bars of soap. I also donate my crochet hats, booties and blankets (my down time activity) to the Childrens' Hospital in Iowa City. So, don't throw social responsibility in my face.

Quoting blues_pagan:

I would be 100% on board with your post here if only for one thing, the American dream of becoming rich (say in the top 2%) is no longer even viable as a dream.  It is literally impossible to climb the economic ladder with the way that things are today.  The rich have been rich for a long time and simply get richer.  The same goes for the poor, they were born poor and will stay poor.

Quoting mom2twinboyz:

That's the thing! Liberals want everyone on the same playing field. That's fine and dandy but at what cost? Is it really fair to ask people who have been lucky enough and work hard enough to give up their money just because they are successful? That is not fair.
You lift people up in other ways not enabling them with a perpetual stream of money from the govt where they will have no will or desire to get employment. How about educating them instead? Now that is lifting them up.

6)Patriotism


I feel democrats are patriots for America because we believe in unity not division.We lift this country up by accepting who we are as diverse people and embracing one another to empowerment.By making sure we are all educated,healthy,and can live humanely.We give everyone the opportunity to grow and become wealthy with a level playing field.We are not beat down....we are innovative and thriving.The only thing beat down is ancient twisted extremist views that are becoming extinct and obsolete.


7)%60 of republicans I feel have stereotypical views....from subtle ...to outward hate and racism.Moderate republicans are continuously having to distance themselves from conservative extremists like Sinunu,Trump,and Limbaugh.Keep it coming because thats how democrats keep winning:)You turn independents and moderate republicans to the liberal wide side:)


8)If you are working....you pay taxes.


You do not pay for a poor person who is working and pays taxes too.Everyone who works pays taxes.Not everyone on welfare is not...not working or without a job....they are just poor and working.Under Romney you would have paid taxes too.Sorry but no-one can pick and choose to whom they want their tax dollars to go.


9)Yes everyone should do their fair share.That includes realizing that the rich not paying their fair share in taxes is wrong and has been going on now for 12 years!!


You can not hand pick and choose where your tax dollars go.America is not one big charity bank you can decide to donate to.Government is a system....and a system that works.I feel safe knowing that if another Sandy should occur I have Fema...not just what someone felt I needed but what useless.

I won't throw social responsibility in your face.  As for the rest, congratulations.  You started your endeavor 10 years ago though, before the recession compounded many issues for younger Americans like myself.  

As for your charity work, I commend you on your donation amount.  And thank you for the Joplin donation, my mom lives there and was there when the tornado hit.  Goddess bless, they were not hit as hard as many others but they did lose 3 friends.  

Last, no, no one is entitled to that money.  But I will say that once you pay taxes that money is no longer yours, it is the governments to do with what they see fit.  Hopefully, President Obama and Congress will compromise so that they can save those who make $250,000 and below a year from steeply rising taxes come January.
