Skip to comments.How To Deprogram A Liberal: Ask Them About President Palin
Posted on 02/04/2013 12:30:23 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
When liberals tell you they support another expansion of federal power at the expense of personal liberty you should ask them how'd they feel if President Palin and Majority Leader Cruz and Speaker Ryan had that power.
Do they really want Palin and Cruz and Ryan to control their healthcare or pensions?
Then, while their stammering at the prospect of Palin signing 23 PRO-GUN executive orders or 23 PRO-LIFE executive orders, ask them why they think that giving career politicians and bureaucrats more money and more influence over the lives of ordinary people will improve things for the ordinary people.
Wouldn't it be better for ordinary people lives to simply get a pay increase of 10% rather than a tax increase of ... any percentage? And since it it would be, then doesn't it make more sense to cut taxes - since that amounts to an instant pay increase?
And ask them how disarming 150 million innocent law-abiding citizens who own guns can stop criminals from using their illegally gotten guns...

You speak as though they can be reasoned with. Really, I’ve tried it. Don’t bother.
There is only one thing on their minds. Socialism. They don’t call it that, however. It’s progress. Tolerance. Compassion. Anything but what it really is. And if you don’t agree then you’re a racist, and a greedy Kapitalist.
I agree, don’t bother. They have not tied the “progressive” movement in this country to the international communist movement that killed 100 million people, and they won’t get it until it happens again, if even then.
There is every intention to avoid the lessons of history on their part.
A progressive would not care and then they would laugh hysterically at the notion.
rather then calling it leftest politics so they don't tune you out right away you need to say government that goes bad or something that makes sense to them.
The way I put it is simple: Greed is the rot of any system of government. Which system handles greed the best. A system that has control over every aspect of our life or one that doesn't?
They’re not “liberals”. True Liberalism implies an open-minded and progressive thinking that they’re incapable of..I prefer to call them “Regressives”, because they want to go back to the days of Feudal Lords ruling over Serfs, to the days that everyone thought unborn children were “blobs” and not complex, intricate beings even shortly after conception, etc.
They will have to learn the hard way!
Socialist Far Left Mao took out 76,700,000 all by his lonesome from 1923 to 1987, not counting another 38,000,000 who died by starvation under his calm and wise watch.
Socialist Center left Stalin murdered a good 61,911,000 to finish in second place much to his chagrin.
When it came to murder by socialism, Hitler was a Socialist Rightwing piker, killing a mere 20,000,0000, but proud that everyone today thinks of him as the worst mass murderer in history.
The totals for the socialist monarchist Japanese are rather murky. Much of their killing was Japanese citizens who refused to join in the formation of their Greater Co-Prosperity Sphere. How many Chinese they killed is unknown, but it is in the millions, with 369,366 in Nanking.
As one Chinese general remarked on seeing Hiroshima and Nagasaki, “You Americans do good work.” Which is nothing to what the Chinese would have done had they had their way.
Most people today have no idea just how much slaughter happened from 1917 (the Russian revolution) to Cambodia in the 1970s.
This cost the US 408,000 combat deaths, with 81,000 of those in the Army Air Corps.
The total world combat deaths from 1900 to 1987 is 34,000,000 for perspective.
Our current conflict with Islam from 1979 to Present is likely on course for 1,000,000,000 dead before all is said and done.

Hitler was left-wing. He was a socialist - as in 'National Socialist'
Like Stalin he created a totalitarian state ruled by an oligarchy in the name of the workers.
Like Stalin he seized control of the means of production and crushed the middle-class.
Hitler even adopted the swastika - the same symbol used by the Bolsheviks on their banknotes.
Where did we get the idea that he was right-wing? Answer: from the rival communists that he attacked.
In trying to vicariously control everybody else’s behaviors they end up under government control. Currently they imagine and feel themselves to be in charge of government and it extends their power over their neighbors. They are like a kid who will have their big strong brother beat you up.
This is the correct way to argue with a liberal.
Lib: President Obama is the best President since Clinton.
Me: You’re a low information voting moron.
National Socialism as opposed to world socialism. There is a left and right in all social systems, with the notable exception of Constitutional Republics. These are facts, not randomly self-generated ideas.
Attacking the opposing left wing (Russia) was the reason Hitler became so hated by Present day lefties who are firmly on the left of the socialist movement.
Hitler allied himself with the lefty monarchist Japanese as they were closest to his socialist beliefs. He allied himself with the islamic movements because their collected political doctrines as outlined in the koran, hadiths, and summahs were his inspirations for "Mein Kampf".
Communists do not regard Hitler as right wing, but as a vile traitor to the collective socialist movement for attacking the Motherland (Russia), and the mass killing of innocent Russian citizens.
Now Sarah. Stand up and lead.
You cannot appeal to liberal’s sense of logic, morality or long-term planning.
Liberals are driven by feeling. And it isn’t what others feel is right, it is what they, as an individual, feel is right.
On the occasion that a liberal will accept a logical challenge, the result is always that the conservative logic-based point wins and that the conservative is branded as evil, usually through a lot of illogical labels (”nazi”, “greedy”, etc)
“Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”: Ronald Reagan
