A basic definition of insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein is doing the same thing, over and over, while expecting different results.
President Obama, by proposing nearly $500 billion more in government spending to "create jobs," demonstrates liberal insanity quite well. Michael Savage has a book out titled, "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" I think he's on to something.
True enough, many liberal politicians may know full well that European-style socialism does not work. Sooner or later the well of other people's money runs dry. But, in the meantime, many are content to buy votes by taking wages from one citizen's productivity and distributing them to others.
Still, others actually believe the old liberty-killing ideas of Karl Marx can work. Because of his upbringing and the people he has been drawn to, Mr. Obama likely falls into the category of impulsively believing he can force a better America upon us (and he's certainly not above buying votes with other people's money).
The revolutionary ideas of redistributive justice have caused untold suffering and misery worldwide. But to modern-day liberals, that's irrelevant because they believe we now have a president with the brainpower to finally make forced wealth redistribution work...

No. They just view reality through a different perspective.
They view things like gnus.
Conservatives view things like lions.
No, they're cowards.
And their Leftist leaders are evil.
But both pretend insanity to deny liability for what they do.
“A basic definition of insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein is doing the same thing, over and over, while expecting different results”
Conservatives do this all the time when they elect RINOs.
It’s called the permanent political class, and both sides contribute. Time to change the whole thing.
Is the Pope Catholic?
Forced wealth redistribution justice has succeed in destroying to old class order and establishing a new privileged class everywhere it has been tried. That is just the goal of the unions and minority organizations. Mind you the “rank and file” in both will not do at all well but the leadership will make out like gang busters.
full of grace,
help my horse,
to win the race!
Is Hussein Obama a Marxist?
I’d say, Yes. They are nutty as a fruitcake. It’s a long-term chronic mental disease that deteriorates sound reasoning skills. The subject deteriorates mentally over time to the point of becoming violent, self-destructive and totally delusional. 50 years ago, we used to lock these types up in state mental hospitals, better known as luny bins. They tried everything to cure them in there including shock therapy and and outright labodemies; all to no avail. Somewhere along the line, someone decided they were not a threat to the rest of us and let these nut cases out into the streets of a functioning society. They bred with each other and multiplied into the so-called “liberals” that we have today. Unfortunately, we also gave them to right to vote when we let em out of the luny bins. Their self-destructive tendencies have now carried over to every facet of our government.
But they aren't concerned with solutions. They care about acquiring power and since money equals means equals power, they seek as much of our's as they can get away with stealing.
So no, they aren't insane, they just have different goals.
1) The right people were not in charge, but the new leader is so much smarter and/or less corrupt than anyone that has tried and failed before, therefore he/she/it will make it work this time. (Hence Obama's nickname "The One")
2) We just didn't spend enough money if we only spend more and spend it sooner . (2nd, 3rd, 4th stimulus anybody)
3) or it's whatever scapegoat/Emmanuel Goldstein they can find fault for opposing them. It's Unexpected!!! It's Bush, Sarah Palin, Teabaggers, Glen Beck. If they wouldn't lead people astray everyone would see how brilliant they the Liberals really are
Does a ursus defecate in the forest?
Er uh Yes.
Seems so FDR. The whole of the 1930s and part of the 1940s were consumed and ruined by the insane progressives. If you change the names the FDR’s and the Food Stamp President’s administrations are interchangeable.
" it would be astonishing that men who killed thousands can get forgiveness for no reason at all, except that of the toxic sentimentality that infects modern culture."
That's it" "toxic sentimentality that infects our culture"!
Yucky. She needs a razor and a dentist.
A recent article revealed that around half of today’s Europeans suffer mental disorder of some sort. Any connection to socialism & Islamic immigration & riots?
No, just evil.
Next time just throw some acid in my eyes.
The problem with liberals is, they want reality on their terms, not on how things actually are and (to an extent) always will be. Whether or not you like it, in life you have ot make sacrifices in order to live life and achieve what you want out of it. Go figure, they want it all on their terms, sometimes get it, but other people pay the price and the expense is often enormous. As you said, we used to lock such people up because they couldn’t or refused to function in soceity, on the terms of society that required taht things function smoothly.
Now because we don’t keep these types locked up, they are running around, chronically destabilizing society and then making the sane and stable pay for it. Another almost frightening facet is that even the stable are taking these people in and letting them wreck havoc on the lives of their own and their families. There’s no safety anymore because these types are being allowed to live life as if they have some right ot live in ‘normal’ society and damage it, sometimes irreperably. What is left of stable society is being forced to bend/twist/turn to accomodate these loonies and at some point there will be a break.
I just wonder, if America didn’t have this extensive welfare system, would we have these people able to really do these things? After all, when we didn’t have welfare as easily and amply available, we didn’t have a fraction of this sort of idiocy. Poeple were too busy making a living and also, the other weirdos didn’t have the resources to put these gay parades together. If we cut back on welfare for the people who don’t contribute, then there will be a huge drop in this sort of stuff because a lot of people will be too busy making a living and studying hard and also getting the skills they need to survive.
These people will only thrive only insofar that we are unwilling ot take charge and then proceed to extract them from our lives, through putting them in a loony bin or a prison, something where they will get the help they need and protect society from their instability.
No not all liberals are Insane.
Some are ..
A true Liberal would never lock their front door.
The reason they do lock their front door is because they know another Liberal would gladly walk into their house and self redistribute their Computer, TV and anything else not nailed down.
The claim to fear Conservatives, but they actually fear people that believe as they do.
That's what it boils down to.
It takes courage to take a stand for what's right, as conservatives do.
I figured out a long time ago that the purpose of welfare is to produce a large, permanent underclass that will invariably vote for demoncraps.
The basic problem we have is our tendency to equate
them to people like ourselves and think we can reason
with them, it doesn’t work with muslims either.
More like useful idiots.Stalin style
Conservatives view things like lions."
I've been saying this everywhere. That is the evolutionary root of all political ideology. Every population has individuals designed for what are called the r-selected and K-selected environments.
When this finally gets accepted by academia, it will be the end of Liberalism, because it will destroy Liberal egos to be associated with the inferiority of the r-selected pychology.
