Why aren’t Liberals Proud to be Liberals?

Liberals are offended – oh, no!

I understand that some liberals are offended by my use of the term “liberal.”

If you are so easily offended that the use of the word “liberal” offends you, it is pretty much a guarantee that you are a liberal.

Liberals believe so much in an ideology, that the failure of the ideology doesn’t deter them in any way.  Liberal policies have been tried in parts of this country, like Detroit.  Detroit is, basically, a liberal utopia.  Not one single Republican politician has been elected in Detroit for 50 years.  Detroit is bankrupt.  It is full of crime and corruption, all because of pure, liberal policies, without the intrusion of any Republicans at all.

Now, liberal policies are being applied to the entire country.  As with all liberal policies, they are failing miserably.  Not only are Obamacare, high taxes and government over-regulation destroying my life personally, the policies are taking away the wealth of our family and destroying the free country that I love.

If you are NOT a liberal, then quit identifying as one.

Here is the litmus test:

Do you believe that the military should be slashed?  Or do you believe in a strong military?  A weak military is an open invitation to our enemies to come on over here and kill us.  A strong military allows us to go about our lives, safe.

Do you believe in open borders?  Or, do you believe that people who are here illegally should be sent home?  Liberals like to talk about about “sustainability.”  You know what is unsustainable?  Giving welfare, food stamps, health care and an education to anyone who is here illegally.

Do you believe in “taxing the rich?”  In liberal world, that means taxing anyone who has a job so that we can give more stuff to people who don’t work, felons and people who are here illegally.

Do you believe in government over-regulation?  You know, the kind of regulation that strangles businesses and kills jobs?

Hey, if you don’t believe in any of that stuff, great, you aren’t a liberal.

But, if you do, you are a liberal.

Why aren’t you proud of it?
