“I’m certainly not immune to worry over the election or the fate of the country, but let me pose a question for stressed-out liberals. Why do you continue to vote to make the federal government and the leaders at its helm an ever-more present and powerful part of every part of our lives when you know there’s a chance every four years a guy you won’t like will be at the helm? If it’s going to stress you out this much who has the levers of power, perhaps you should work toward making the levers less powerful?”

This last part is FANTASTIC !!!

First time I’ve heard this concept articulated in this way.


Yup. Thats a home run. They want the feds to have more and more power, but are crapping themselves at the thought of a Republican getting their hands on that power.

I have never understood how a seemingly intelligent person could vote for 0bama or any liberal/progressive. Those Liberal voters are saying the same thing about Conservatives.

There are two completely different world views.

What’s odd is that their world view values “relativism” unless it conflicts with an overriding belief in the State.

I have come to believe that their “faith” in the state is seeded in their distrust of their fellow man. A distrust that stems from their own selfishness and therefore everyone, when left to their own devises, would take advantage of anybody they could. Because this is what they would do.

They fear conservatives, because they fear all the possibilities free people would have available to them.

They don’t trust free people, because they don’t trust themselves.

She’s running from a boogieman. Republicans never use those levers ruthlessly.
