Icons of the Left

Icons of the Left

Obama has had his way with America.

You name the liberal proposal, and in some form or another, it has been imposed on the country.

Democrats should have no complaints. Right? After all, they elected a man of the Left who has fundamentally transformed this country, many by executive fiat. A quick list:

√ Legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants.

√ Transgender bathrooms.

√ Obamacare.

√ Wall Street reform.

√ Higher taxes on the rich.

√ Higher taxes on us all.

√ Gay marriage and the normalization of homosexuality.

√ Massive increase in government regulation in all aspects of lives.

√ Disengagement from the world stage via a “lead from behind strategy.”

√ Mandated contraception and abortifacients in health insurance.

√ Huge support for Black Lives Matter.

This is a stunning list of accomplishments for the Democratic Party. We have witnessed a leftward lurch, the likes of which this country has never seen. Every Democratic voter in America must be beaming.

They’re not. In fact, they are angry. In fact, many seem enraged.

Things just aren’t going so well. A quick list:

√ The economy is in the tank. This is the worst economic recover since WWII.

√ Middle class wages are stagnant. The middle class is shrinking.

√ Health insurance rates continue to explode at the same time benefits erode.

√ Parents are afraid to let their daughters use a public restroom.

√ The world is burning.

√ Christians are being martyred at record rates. The religion is quickly being expunged from the Mideast.

√ The government is your enemy if you don’t think or pray the right way.

√ Government deficits have more than doubled.

√ The number of people on food stamps has exploded to shocking levels.

√ Social Security and Medicare are going broke.

To recap, liberalism isn’t working. It is making this country, and the world, worse, much worse.

Hillary Clinton is basically running on a platform of more of the same. Bernie Sanders is running on a platform that Obama didn’t go far enough, that we simply need a lot MORE of the same: more taxes on everyone; a lot more taxes on the most productive; more government regulations; more government takeover of the private sector.

It never seems to dawn on his horde of young Leftists that his prescriptions failed in Venezuela, Cuba, the Soviet Union, and practically anywhere else it has been tried. Socialism is a loser.

Sadly, these snowflakes have never been taught critical thinking skills.

They simply want free stuff.

    As I have said in the past, the mind set of the radical liberal, lends credence to an established insane way of thinking. Do the words moronic, stupid, lunatic, tunnel vision, erratic, and/or bizarre, ring a bell? Sorry, but to me, that’s what these individuals, who are hell bent on destroying this country are. God Bless America. We need Him more than ever. Blessings.

      Here’s where things get interesting: the Left says the same thing about us. Go figure.

        Oh, yes. They do, but, unlike us, they really have a lot of hatred toward us, and care to hide it. Sad.

        It’s amazing that these people who WILL NOT be judged by God (as they see it) insist we be judged by them. They think our opinion that biblical doctrine is the thing by which life should be lived is insane, but look at what THEY call normal? I have never in my life seen such mental illness as is so rampant now. When man decides right and wrong and changes it daily, society b/c schizophrenic.It’s like the bratty kid that grows up w/ no rules…only it’s the society. Don’t many of the bizarre people today remind you of the undisciplined child that someone would bring to your house and you were glad to see them leave? Now, WE must leave wherever we find THEM to get some peace.

          Good example (about the bratty child)!

    I was given an article by my first boss after college graduation. It was written by a psychologist who studied why some people seem to be continuously lucky and others unlucky. He came up with seven key differences.

    One was that the “lucky” knew when to cut bait on an idea which was clearly failing. They didn’t continue to stay with something because they were afraid to admit that they had been wrong. Finding a better strategy was more important than saving face.

    Even after 50 years, the Left can’t bring itself to call off their failed experiments and seek a new track.

      So, so true!

      That’s b/c they are primarily concerned w/ controlling our lives. They do not consider ANYTHING they have done as failed. It’s all about the “infinitely malleable human nature”. They figure they can make humans conform to their way of thought if we are just molded enough. Think about what “malleable” means. It has to do w/ hammering metal into shape w/ a hammer. That is pretty much where the likes of us stand w/ the ultra left. We are just material to be hammered into the shape they’d have us. There’s no failure in that…just continuing until they are happy w/ the results. Somehow< I think that will be never. After all, how does one know when to stop with no idea. If one is in the image of God, then we know He stopped at a point where we were His image. Otherwise, how does one know when one has reached the right amt. of hammering?
