Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support free markets, free trade, limited government, individual rights (including civil rights and human rights), capitalism, democracy, secularism, gender equality, racial equality, internationalism, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion.” This from one of my liberal friends and Wikipedia.
If this definition is true to form and liberals believe the definition then why do they support riots that burn private property and support people that won’t let a Conservative speak on a college campus ? Why do they want people to boycott people or events they don’t agree with ? Why do they want to limit our Constitutional right of the 2nd Amendment ? Why don’t they support the rights of people to follow the law ? Why do they want to dictate things that they haven’t figured out how to control ? Why is are they silent when hundreds of minorities are killed every year in Chicago but riot when one police officer kills a minority person ? Why do they sit back and do nothing when their schools are failing in their liberal run cities ? When in other districts with open enrollment and school choice thrive. Why do the say they believe in limited government and then want the Federal government to always bail them out or pay for their letting people burn their cities ? Why do they support that they are always right and everyone else is wrong ? Especially when they can’t prove they are right ! Now I do challenge the liberals to prove me wrong in what I’ve just stated. In each case you can see that the liberals want to restrict everyone else and not themselves.
The definition supplied doesn’t really describe the American liberal of today. Maybe it defined ones living in the 60’s or 70’s but not 2020. You can’t tune into a liberal media without hearing them wanting to restrict the rights of someone to speak or express their thoughts. They want their viewers to not turn on Rush Limbaugh or listen to President Trump. They sit back and watch buildings burn in places and then say the protest were basically peaceful. That or they don’t even say a darn word about the damage or condemn anything that was done. On January 20, 2016 President Trump was inaugurated in to office but in parts of Washington D.C. businesses were being vandalized and police beaten by mobs of rioters but the liberal media were silent and didn’t condemn it unless one of their reporters got beat up. All that stuff they espouse in their definition is all fine and dandy but it is worthless if they don’t follow it or enforce it.
During the 1992 Presidential Election, Bill Clinton said he was going to give a middle class tax cut. Instead, Clinton lied to the American People and gave them the Largest Tax Hike in the history of the United States of America.
So why should we believe that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will not raise our taxes or not just raise taxes on people making more than $400,000.00. After all up until weeks after the Convention they were saying they were going to undo Trump Tax cuts. That means a $2000.00 tax increase for most of the middle class. So do we believe the 22 times they promised to eliminate Trump’s tax cuts or now they are going to not raise our taxes on the middle class. Really do you trust them after this year ? I don’t trust their lips and more than I trust the news from CNN.
