We needed the Obama administration. In the best of all possible worlds, it wouldn’t have been necessary to have an Obama era at all. But we don’t live in the best of all possible worlds, and the chief reason why is because liberals won’t listen to reason and won’t listen to science. The only way to persuade them that their fantasies stink is when their fantasy is a smoking hole in the ground.
The thing is, I have heard iterations of this argument over the years. “Let it all burn. THEN they’ll come around. THEN the lib-troglodytes will abandon their unworkable utopian fantasies and embrace free market capitalism.”
It hasn’t happened yet, and it never will. Hundreds of millions of people died under Stalin, Mao, Che, Pol Pot, Kim Song Il, Castro . . . and this moved the lib-troglodytes not one iota. The entire Soviet Union collapsed, and the lib-troglodytes simply shrugged and became environmentalists, feminists, and academics. Waiting for lib-troglodytes to embrace reason is a fool’s errand. The only solution for humanity is to ban lib-troglodytes from the public square and refuse them the reins of power. Yes, they are that dangerous. Never forget that there will always be a significant portion of the human population that simply wants to watch it all burn. You can’t reason with them. All you can do is minimize their influence.
Richard Nixon was defeated by Jack Kennedy in 1960. If Nixon had won in 1960, the Viet Nam war may have been over in six months, fewer 18 year old interns would have been molested in the White House by Jack, and Marylyn Morose may still be alive.
Joe Kennedy may have told Bobby that he wanted Jack to win in 1960 but that he did not want to pay for a landslide. There was probably vote fraud in the 1960 West Virginia Primary and also in the 1960 general election in Chicago and Texas. Landslide L.B. Johnson did not even bother to organize the bad votes out of alphabetical order in Texas. Richard Nixon was too much of a gentleman to complain and he did not want to upset the country, so he said nothing.
Liberals are not convinced by facts.” Absolutely true….it is always amazing to me how, in a discussion, you lay out a case based on facts; build an airtight, step-by-step, irrefutable, logic-based argument. You lead a liberal RIGHT TO it: A=B, right? “Yeah”, they’ll admit. “And B=C, you with me?”Yeah, I suppose.” they allow. “So A therefore has GOT to = C, right?”
They squirm a little bit as the left side of their brain reaches for the inescapable, orderly, logic. But then the emotional, artsy, right side of their brain positively SCREAMS at them that if they are forced to admit one conservative truth, their ENTIRE identity, and life as they know it, will have to change against their will.
“Uh-uh, no way, your facts are wrong, and you are a mean-racist-bigot-homophobe, so I hate you and I don’t believe a single word you say, na-na-na-boo-boo.”
Sad for them and tragic for the country.
