It’s like some of our stars of the past had looked into a crystal ball and had seen what we would go through. The truth is that liberals have been up to the same old tricks for years, and people have seen through them for just as long. Ronald Reagan tried to tell us how liberal policies could destroy us. Now John Wayne tries to tell us how liberal philosophy could destroy us.
“I have found that a certain type that calls himself a liberal – and I always thought I was a liberal! I came up terribly surprised one time when I found that I was a right-wing conservative extremist, when I have listened to everybody’s point of view that I ever met and then decide how I should feel. I mean, but this so-called new liberal group, they never listen to your point of view. And they make a decision as to what you think, and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person. For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me. In spite of what they say, people have not taken sides that I’m a, you know . . . it hasn’t affected my career in popularity, let’s say. In spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make it do it.
“There isn’t a hell of a lot that we can do to change human behavior. We keep making laws to try to change human behavior. You can’t do it… We are being conned into keynesianism and socialism now, but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior. It isn’t going to stop the greed. If you take twenty dollars and give a dollar to every son-of-a-bitch in the room, you come back a year later, one of the bastards will have most of the money. I mean, it’s just human nature, and you’re not going to lump it with a lot of laws.
“I think when you make people conscious, as communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help. But of course, now it gets so many charities, and there’s so much professionalism . . . If you have a charity, you hire some professionals to work up the charity, and by the time you get the money you get four dollars for the recipient and four hundred dollars for the administrators. I think there are people who try to effect a thinking, to where they know more than some other son-of-a-bitch, and try to put a false impression on what human nature is. We have proven that we go back to hope at the first opportunity. Just throw out a little fish, and bam, they’re out there ready to grab it. So we are optimistic. We have to be optimistic. What else would there be in life if you lose optimism?”
The Duke points out a few liberal characteristics we must bear in mind when trying to work for change. Liberals have made up their mind, liberals will not be swayed by reason, liberals will decide why we believe what we believe and then use their media lapdog to try to convince others they are right. Most importantly, liberals will decide that they know best and try to force their view on everyone else. How true is this? We are learning in recent days with the passage of Obamacare that truer words have never been spoken. In the liberal mind there is no room for the possibility that they could be wrong and that important decisions should be made together. They will happily force their will on the entire country whether the majority of us want them to or not.
