Five Truths That Liberals Hate

Five Truths That Liberals Hate

Hello, everyone.

A year ago this month, I took my huge Amtrak trip across this country.  That trip opened my eyes to a lot of things, including the fact that the Conservative philosophy possessed many truths that I could no longer deny.  Thus my personal philosophy and political outlook did a total shift towards the Right.

Not long after my trip, I found a post on my Facebook wall with the above title as its title.   The URL for the article is http://americanvision.org/3078/five-truths-that-liberals-hate/

Here are the truths as stated in the article.

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
  4. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
  5. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Let’s look at these statements with a little more depth.

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

You know this is true and I know that it’s true, but apparently Bernie Sanders doesn’t know it.  Or else he DOES know it but cannot embrace or accept it because if he did, his run for the White House would be torpedoed.  But it is a known fact that you cannot legislate morality or prosperity into law.  Because if you try to legislate one certain class into prosperity, you are going to legislate another group OUT OF prosperity and possibly into poverty.

  1. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving

This is very true.  And this is one major argument against the concept of “income equality.”  It makes NO sense for one group to sit on their dead butts and rake in the dough while another group works its backside off and sees no gain in response to its hard work.  Not only are the lazy ones not given any reason to work and provide for themselves, those who do work see no rationale for doing their jobs or even going to work themselves because the proceeds that they earn from their work go to those who have no desire to work.

  1. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

Bernie Sanders is essentially a Socialist, and the idea of the state taking from those who have to give to those who have not is one of the basic tenets of Socialism.  During the Cold War, this idea of the state confiscating personal property was one of the many complaints about Communism.  Do we REALLY want this country to sink this low?

  1. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

And the Republicans know this.  They know that letting the fox into the chicken coop is the first step in the death of this country.  That is why they have unofficially adopted the phrase “I want my country back” as their battle cry for this election cycle.  Indeed, I believe that if Bernie Sanders or any other Democrat wins the top prize, this country could well cease to exist as we know it before 2020.

  1. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

The Republicans know this as well.  In order to multiply wealth, the wealthy must be free to apply their wealth towards business expansion, which in turn leads to jobs expansion.  You cannot multiply wealth by giving it, hand over fist with no questions asked, to the unproductive class in this country.

These five statements MUST be first and foremost in our minds when we cast our ballots in 2016.

May each of you have a truly great day.

Bill
