Is Social Liberalism more Dangerous than Fiscal Liberalism?

Over drinks one of my old college friends, Benny, tells me that he is fiscally conservative but socially liberal.  That’s because he doesn’t want to risk seeming biased in being against same sex marriage or adoption.

The liberals and self-important pretend-enlightened Americans think that it is wrong to dislike behavioral abnormalities or to fail to revolt against traditional norms of behavior or to not spring dive into the current trend of atheism.

My socially liberal friend is also for fully embracing abortion and is in favor of a woman’s right to choose the murder of her embryo.

As a social liberal he thinks that he is bright. On the other hand, social conservatism would make him feel pigheaded and perhaps not-so-bright like Rick Santorum.

looney leftWhereas social liberalism allows him to promote infanticide like Obama, failure to name our enemies such as Islamic terrorists and to lie consistently like Obamacare subscribers.  Remember Obama’s unforgivable lies that we can keep our doctors and our health plans.  Obama is above the truth.  To him the truth is corny and institutional.  He’s cool like the Muslims who are permitted to lie in defense of their religion.  That is of course his theocratic bureaucracy.

Now in order to feel that he is a little bit intelligent my friend says that he is fiscally conservative.  That way he can separate himself from the fact that Obama has put us eighteen trillion dollars in debt.  In fact he has managed to increase our debt by more than all the presidents who preceded him.

My friend who takes credit for fiscal conservatism and social liberalism doesn’t realize that social liberalism is more dangerous to the tradition and the fabric of society than fiscal liberalism.  Its time he found the courage to stand up in the moral arena rather than pretend that he’s an economist.
