Guilty!!! Father of six.
No, it is selfish to be a liberal.
I thought liberals were “pro-choice?”
Just cut it off Jonathon. We’ll feel better. You’ll feel better.
I guess they would look down their noses at my husband and I with out 5 kids and 11 grandkids and counting—LOL!
Is it selfish to try to tell other people what to do?

Liberalism is an insidiously evil mental disease with no known cure....
And then you'd have to get my guns from my kids' cold dead hands (they all know how to shoot).

Liberals tend to be mathematically illiterate.
Proud mother of seven here.
I thought I was considered selfish because I have none.
Unfortunatly those in high income countries across the world are faced with declining birth rates while the poor in other countries are still rapidly increasing their numbers Eventually populations with large numbers of young people will start pushing into the richer countries and we won’t have the numbers to stop them.
Just look at Russia, if it isn’t happening already I’m sure the chinese will begin to settle north of their border within twenty years. And Russia will be stretched too thin to put up much of a fight.
If the west and the east want to surive all of us need to start having babies and not bow to this pc crap. I notice the liberals don’t try to limit the exploding populations in Africa and the middle east. They just pick easy targets like us.
Liberals reject reality.
It’s not selfish to have children.
It is selfish to raise your children to be liberals.
Not nearly as selfish as having more liberals.
