Liberalism is Terminally Ill
Canada Free Press ^ | June 10, 2012 | Matt Barber

It’s been a pitiful sight – a sad week for progressives and “Big Union” Democrat-shilling thugs. In the wake of Tuesday night’s devastating recall smackdown in Wisconsin, tens of thousands of “Occupy” hippies across the nation have simply been too depressed to get stoned and not look for work.

On Wednesday the White House released President Obama’s detailed itinerary through October:


Indeed, the president has much to worry about. No honest politico can deny that liberals’ Wisconsin debacle likely represents a shadow of things to come – a precursor to November.

Recall DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s admission on CNN. In a rare moment of candor, she said Wisconsin was a “dry run” – a “test run” for the 2012 election. (A bit like the Titanic’s test run, as it turns out.)

Tuesday night Sarah Palin took to Fox News where she said that Scott Walker’s humiliating defeat of Tom Barrett, the DNC and heretofore-excessively-coddled-labor-union-leaders spells big trouble for little Barry. “Obama’s goose is cooked,” she said. “It’s the union leaders who need to be recalled.”(continued)

How can liberalism be dead? We’ve got two liberals running for president!
Nixon gave us the EPA and price controls; Reagan increased taxes and signed an amnesty bill.
If we can take back the senate and WH, we can take back America.

One is a liberal in the mold of Bush 41, Gerald Ford and Giuliani. The other is a liberal in the mold of V.I. Lenin, Henry Wallace and Fidel Castro. Pick one.

Well put, but given those choices, I'll hold my nose and vote for Romney. If Obama is reelected on November 6th it could very well be the last free presidential election we will see for a very long time. Obama has given himself frightening powers to curtail free speech, shut down the Internet, control the media and even "detain" US citizens indefinitely in time of national emergency. All it would take is a trumped up "Reichstag fire" incident to make Obama a virtual dictator. Obama has already shown his disregard for Congress, the courts and the Constitution and his willingness to rule by decree. In a second term we could only expect this to get worse. I think our choice in November is clear.

“On Tuesday night, blogger David Burge of the Iowa Hawk blog “tweeted: ‘The principal delusion of liberals is that liberalism is popular. The principal delusion of conservatives is that liberalism is popular.’

Modern liberalism:

(1) Your problems are not your fault. Your problems are caused by bad people who don't deserve what they have, and we will solve all your problems by taking money away from them and giving it to you.

(2) You have a right to be happy. If you are unhappy, it is someone else's fault. We will force others to celebrate, affirm, and subsidize your choices, and we will smack down people who are doing better than you in order to assuage your status anxiety.

(3) All lifestyles are equally legitimate, and if yours has negative consequences, we will bail you out to level the playing field.

(4) You do not need to worry about the future. Live for today, and we will take care of the rest.

What is unpopular about any of that?
