The typical Progressive Liberal confuses me, and quite frankly, I think they are confused as well. What they say and do are so contradictory to a rational line of thinking leaves me with multiple WTH moments.
This is the fourth and last installment of the series.
The typical Progressive Liberal politician always states their support for the Constitution and the laws of the United States…that is, as long as it is convenient and can be used to fulfill their personal and political agendas. When the Constitution and the laws of the United States interfere with those same political and personal agendas, then those documents are now “out of date” and are duly ignored.
The same can be said of the Progressive Liberal defense of a person’s personal liberty to live life according to your belief system within the law. That is true if you are a minority, non-Christian, gay or trans-whatever, on Welfare, or an illegal immigrant. Otherwise, your treated as crap in the Progressive Liberal world.
The rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are constantly being challenged by the Progressive Liberals in both Congress and Supreme Courts, and being stripped by Executive Order from the President with nary a whimper from the People. Indeed, there are some that cheer when a right has been infringed for “the public good.”
What has happened to this country? Has all common sense and decency been cast aside for the political correctness insanity that seems to have invaded every nook and cranny of our lives?
Let’s first take the case of a high-level government employee, accountable to the President of the United States, willingly violated the laws and policies of the office by using an email address hosted on a private server of questionable security instead of the high-security email server provided by the government. The evolving story of why this person used the private server is ludicrous at best, and is absolutely criminal no matter what excuse is being made – the office demands absolute accountability and high security in all communications.
Next, take the case of the Executive Mandate by the President to not enforce the immigration laws of the United States. Quite frankly, the immigration laws are not broken except by those people who violate them – it is the enforcement of those laws which is broken. From the bottom to the top, these laws are being ignored or are being subverted by the various authorities who vowed to uphold them. If the political will were exerted to enforce the laws from deportation to employment compliance, this issues would be a moot point.
Gay marriage was ruled by the Supreme Court to be legal in all fifty states. In my opinion, the Federal Government via the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction in this matter as marriage is not a Federal matter per the Tenth Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
In other words, it is up to the States to define marriage, not the Federal Government. The Court and Federal Government have overstepped their bounds.
This past week’s story of a mentally ill, homosexual, racist, black man killing two of his former white co-workers focused on the gun and what could be done to stop gun violence. Quite unlike the white, young racist who killed several church parishioners and their pastor in Charleston, where the focus was on not only the gun, but being white, the display of the Confederate battle flag, and his racism. The Progressive Liberal agenda is telling when these two cases are compared side by side, and it just doesn’t make sense unless it is realized that the Progressive Liberal is more concerned about their agenda than the people that agenda affects.
The Progressive Liberal agenda is unrepentant in their opposition to the private ownership of firearms. If possible, they would use any and all excuse and reason to disarm the People of the United States to “make us safe” when in actuality, the reverse would be true. People would then be defenseless against the criminals that would surely prey upon them (look at the statistics in Australia and Great Britain for assaults, robberies, and rapes since their gun bans, and they are truly chilling).
However, the Progressive Liberal agenda is in favor of guns being in the hands of the government, which is surprising since the Progressive Liberals decry the use of the lethal police force sometimes used when enforcing laws or when police are protecting themselves or civilians. But wait, that’s only when used against a “protected class” of people…
This double-standard has been placed front and center over the past several years, leading to the latest in what I would call a racist group – Black Lives Matter – which has been calling for an all-out war against whites and police in social media. This is nothing new – there have always been groups promoting one race over the other for years – some of them violent, other not. But what about the thought that if any group or organization that promotes one group of people over another because of heritage or color or skin is racist, then there are a whole lot of groups that would fit into this category. Consider the following:
The Progressive Liberal does not want to hear dissent over their seemingly contradictory rhetoric even though they state that they are open minded. Indeed, personal attacks and public shaming with a smattering of lawsuits follow challenges over their failed arguments in light of facts and other opinions.
“Liberals claim to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover there are other views.” – William F. Buckley
Quite frankly, I’m offended that the Progressive Liberal politician makes the presumptions that they know better how to run my life better than I do, that their opinion trumps mine, and that I’m an entitled person because I work hard & as a result, reasonably successful. Considering that the majority of the Progressive Liberal politicians haven’t worked a day in their life without sucking up taxpayer dollars for their pay tells me that they haven’t the foggiest idea of what real life is all about.
I am also offended that the Progressive Liberal does not call themselves for what they really are: They are a rebranded Socialist that have only done so to make themselves palatable to the People of the United States. The President’s mentor teaches this:
I leave you with these final thoughts for this series of posts:
The Liberal Progressive promote that their way is the best way, the way that will benefit everyone, a path to endless prosperity for all. We will all live in peace and security under their benevolent, selfless leadership. All will be as a fantasyland, full of unicorns leaping over rainbows, a virtual heaven on Earth.
Such are the thoughts of dreamers and philosophers who are disconnected from reality, and the self-delusions of the power-hungry. All that leads down this path is destruction and misery.
The United States of America is unique in history, founded by revolution, providing a system of government that placed power to the people of that country instead of an all-powerful royalty or government. However, this system is being subverted by powerful politicians and people behind the scenes that only see paths to power. It is not only the Liberal Progressives that are responsible, but members of both political parties with their backers. But it is the Liberal Progressives that are leading the charge.
Hope & Change, Fundamentally Transform, Spread the Wealth, and other catch phrases only serve to capture the public’s imagination to move forward to something better, blinding the public that there is nothing wrong with what we already have should our politicians quit acting like hammers looking for nails to pound. Why must there be change when the change is worse?
The consequences of the changes wrought by the current President’s Administration and the Congressional sessions during his first term are beginning to be felt by many. None of the people who voted for legislation detrimental to this country will ever be held personally accountable except by being voted out of office.
We the People must take an intense interest in the people that we elect to office and the political process that is used to elect them. They must constantly be reminded that they work the People that elected them, not their political party. We the People have an obligation to review the actions of our elected representatives. Remember –
