We are a liberal society. We are composed of liberal beliefs. Democracy is liberal. Education is liberal. Freedoms are liberal. The First Amendment is liberal. Separation of Church and State is liberal. Innocent until proven guilty is liberal. Our socialist society of civil servants is liberal. Social Security and Medicare are liberal. Free markets correcting themselves is liberal. Freedom of religion is liberal.
Conservatives get to live in this liberal socialist society with all its great, and not so great, standards. Instead of building on this society as a whole, their politicians, pundits, and talking heads find ways to exploit cultural ‘tribal thinking’ and insecurities in certain pockets of the country and develop wedge issues and identity politics to gain supporters.
Their collective goal is to eliminate the very principles and ‘social justices’ that have been in place for centuries. They get to run against liberal ideals they can never eliminate, and for that, the idea that “liberalism” having to be stopped, becomes a meaningless, mindless dogma of the politically confused. You can’t stop it. It is an intrinsic part of the entire country.
Yet, with this canard of “if only we could get rid of liberals”, they yearn to “restore” the country to a time that never really existed. That only they can accomplish. Beware of such ideologies. Conservative Kool-Aid is not the answer. The nature of our country is to include everyone. To take care of those who need help. In this tough economy, now is not the time to forget.
