Are You a Liberal?

This question is much harder to answer and teasing out the history of liberalism is far more difficult than defining what “conservative” really means.

However, the essence of today’s “liberalism” in contrast & comparison to “conservatism” is that

Liberals are “deluded;”

whereas,

Conservatives are “psychotic.”

The liberal delusion is

“Someone will give me something for nothing.”

And there are various derivatives off that theme of entitlement and

“Something for Nothing.”

But the cost of government sponsored or government provided services is VERY HIGH.

Consider that at the time of the advent of “The Great Society” and LBJ’s [President Johnson’s] “War on Poverty,”

Americans were hopeful but we have learned a hard lesson.

There is more poverty today in America then there was when “The War of Poverty” began.

In the 1960’s a reliable estimate is that for every $1 in public services rendered Uncle Sam ate up $5!

That’s one helluva tax!

80%!

Alas, today the ratio is far worse.  I estimate that for every $1 in public services delivered, Uncle Sam takes $19!

“Big Government” is “Big Business.”

More diabolically,

The “hidden costs” are terrible!

For one, with the strong motivation of entitlement programs the toll on life quality and the toll on society are even greater.

For another, with the domination of The Medical Model on American Mental Health we’ve pretty much destroyed American health and American character.

So, which are you?

Are you deluded?

Or are you psychotic?

Perhaps the more important questions are:

Are conservatives or liberals more dangerous?

Are conservatives or liberals more effective in getting their message and agenda through?
