How Liberals Think

This is from an email circulating on the Internet:

How liberals think on 10 major issues of the day:

  1. The U.S. Constitution Is Unconstitutional

    According to liberal dogma, the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights are unconstitutional because all were crafted by an exclusive conclave of white male Christians.

    Women, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians, gays, lesbians, transsexuals, the handicapped, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and the blind were all under represented, if at all.

    Because of this devastating lack of diversity, the Constitution must be regarded as a “living document,” subject to change in accordance with ever changing demographics and contemporary values.

  2. Free Speech

    Freedom of speech must never be quashed, except for criticism directed at minorities and sensitive constituencies of the Democrat party.

    Burning Old Glory is protected free speech, whereas expressions of conservative values by people like Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage are unacceptable “hate speech,” which must be subjected to “fairness” censoring by the federal government.

  3. Abortion, the Death Penalty and Assisted Suicide

    On issues of life and death, liberals are especially vulnerable to tripping on their own hypocritical double talk.

    Namely: A woman’s right to abort the life of an innocent child is inalienable; whereas execution of a convicted killer is cruel, unusual & barbaric.

    Starving a helpless victim like Terri Schaivo to death is acceptable; but using lethal injection to end the life of a brutal killer is not.

  4. Religion

    Religious faith and belief in God are outdated pagan concepts, which do more harm than good. Sophisticated citizens can rely on the government for support from cradle to grave, obviating the need to rely on beliefs and rituals long since debunked.

    Symbols of Christianity such as the Ten Commandments, the Cross, Christmas trees, nativity scenes, and the like must be hidden from public view so as to offend no one.

    Publicly wishing a friend or family member “Merry Christmas” is clearly an act of civil disobedience and unconstitutional.

    While Christianity is to be suppressed at all costs, Islam must be openly promoted in the name of religious awareness, sensitivity and tolerance.

    The separation of state and government applies fully when dealing with Christianity or Judaism, but is irrelevant with regard to Islam and all other religions.

    Delivery of Christmas cards and gifts by the United States Postal Service is an unconstitutional violation of state-religion separation and must end immediately.

  5. Taxes

    Leveling the playing field between haves and have-nots is the most important function of government, even more critical than national security.

    To support that objective, no government role is more essential than levying and collecting taxes, otherwise known as redistribution of wealth.

    Tax cuts are wrong when returned to people who actually paid taxes, but are perfectly fine when sent to those who paid none.

    Although most liberals deny that Jesus even lived, many use the quote in Matthew 22:21, “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s…” to justify higher taxes.

    Paying taxes is the “Christian Conservative” thing to do!

  6. Marriage and Same-Sex Issues

    The traditional American family consisting of one man and one woman is just one of several possible arrangements, all of which are equally moral and acceptable.

    Marriage is no longer necessary to sanctify man-woman relationships.

    Although the institution of marriage is no longer vital to heterosexual partners, it is absolutely essential that same-sex couples be allowed to marry. To deny them that basic right is discriminatory, immoral, unfair, and clearly unconstitutional.

  7. Racism, Diversity and Affirmative Action

    Liberals believe that discrimination based on race or gender is wrong. Except when waged against Caucasian men, in which case it is mandated by law and called Affirmative Action.

    “Our Diversity Is our Greatest Strength” is the liberal pledge of allegiance to socialism.

    Enforcing U.S. borders and immigration laws, including deportation of illegal aliens, is wrong because it targets Hispanics, obviously based on racial profiling.

    Those who support English as the official language of America are racists. But those who prefer Spanish and other foreign languages over English are not because of the inherent value of diversity.

    Conservatives who seek to preserve American language and culture are bigoted hate mongers, whereas new immigrants, including illegal aliens, must be allowed to maintain and celebrate their cultural heritage at all costs, even if it interferes with assimilation into mainstream America.

  8. Preserving the American Dream for Working Class Americans

    According to liberal propaganda, they are the only hope for American families, notwithstanding the fact that Democrats support the influx of millions of illegal aliens who work for lower wages and without benefits, and drive down the standard of living for working families.

    Skyrocketing gasoline prices devastate working American families, but protecting Alaskan wild life is a greater priority.

    Businesses are oppressive institutions that must not be allowed to become too large and powerful. By contrast, government creates wealth & happiness and should be expanded whenever possible.

    Outsourcing of American jobs to foreign nations is driven by immoral corporate greed. By contrast, open borders and amnesty are acceptable because most illegal aliens are future Democrats.

    Huge profits are obscene and un-American, except when enjoyed by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, and other liberals.

  9. Global Warming, the Environment, and Energy Independence

    According to liberal technocrats like Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, and Dennis Kucinich, global warming is a greater threat to the health and well being of humanity than terrorism.

    Some liberal extremists even think that the colors of the American flag should be changed to green, white, and blue so as to reflect the importance of the environment to our nation, while simultaneously deleting the color red, which symbolizes blood shed in illegal wars waged by Bushes 41 and 43.

  10. Use of Military Force, Invading Foreign Nations

    Military force must never be used, except when needed to advance interests not vital to the United States, or to obscure a Democrat president’s sexual misconduct in the Oval Office.

    Invading a foreign nation is wrong, except when aliens from Mexico invade America.

Understanding liberal thinking is probably more trouble than it is worth. The more prudent action would be to take all necessary steps to assure that liberals are not elected or reelected to political office.

If you disagree with this list, click on "comments" below, and explain your position. I have some thoughts on a few points here myself, so I'll get the ball rolling with some comments of my own.


  1. 1. The Constitution is Unconstitutional - I don't think a liberal would make that argument. They would say, "The Constitution is Unjust".

    The argument, "Women, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians, gays, lesbians, transsexuals, the handicapped, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and the blind were all under represented, if at all." is vacuous however. Equal protection under the law is fair to everyone. The First Amendment should provide ample protection from religious persecution, although it is incompatible with Islam: Sharia law is prohibited by the non-establishment clause; but Sharia law is required by Islam for the free exercise thereof. It's a catch-22, for which Islam will have to work something out. The non-establishment clause was intended to prevent just that kind of religious tyranny.

  2. 4. Religion - separation of church and state: There is no such thing. The first amendment reads, in part: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

    Congress cannot make laws that would establish a religion, but the "separation of church and state" makes it seem as if you can never have the two together in the same room. That is ridiculous. Many of the founders were openly religious. Laws prohibiting public display of religion amount to prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

  3. 5. Taxes - Should be for the sole purpose of operating government. The government's role is established in The Constitution, and redistribution of wealth is not one of the enumerated powers.

    Most people would agree that taking someone's life (in whole or in part) is wrong, and it is illegal in most states. Most people do not understand that stealing (taking someone's wealth without their consent and without compensation) is the same as taking someone's life in part. Because the time it took them to legally acquire their wealth is time from their life that they will never get back.

    Taxes levied to operate the government is "compensation" because we presumably benefit from the amount of government We the People agreed to in The Constitution. Anything beyond that is uncompensated, and can be considered legalized theft.

  4. Illegal immigration is a euphemism for invasion. Protection from invasion is one of the few legitimate powers granted to government by We the People in The US Constitution. The government is doing a myriad of things that aren't authorized in The Constitution, all the while not stopping this invasion. It is a heinous dereliction of responsibility.

    The government mandates -- or hands out -- tons of free stuff -- free medical treatment, free schooling, free food, free housing... People used to immigrate here to escape the nanny statism, tyranny and oppression of their old country to try their hand at self-sufficiency. Today, in addition to a diminishing number of people attracted by diminishing opportunity in this country, anxious to assimilate into American culture, we're attracting an increasing number of people motivated by sloth, who are loathe to assimilate. Instead, they balkanize. It is absolutely an invasion.

    Our minimum wage laws are one of the biggest reasons for this invasion. It is illegal to pay someone the true market value for low paying jobs. But of course, no businessman in his right mind would pay above market value for anything (nor should they!) Therefore, they hire illegals, who will work for the actual market value. Unfortunately, that opens the door for exploitation by the employer (I never said all businessmen were scrupulous -- merely that they're in their right mind).

    Government should protect the rights of all citizens through equal justice under the law. That starts by not governing against natural law -- which includes well established economic laws such as supply and demand. Eliminate the minimum wage, and you will eliminate the black market for illegal workers. Then we can get serious about helping those illegal immigrants who got caught in the middle.
