Why Are Liberals So Angry?

Understanding the Root of Democratic Discontent

Why Democrats Are So Angry? Is it me or are most democrats pissed off? Their mad at Trump, their mad at white people, their absolutely insanely pissed off at old white men. I better careful I'm starting to fall into that category. What did I do? What did I do that people are so angry at me for be a straight white guy that happened to make it almost to half century mark?

Seriously, have you noticed the hostility of democrats? This ISN'T just the media. You know what I'm talking about. If you have any liberal friends on Facebook you know exactly what I'm talking about. They're attacking everybody. Trump. He's an automatic. If you voted for Trump as far as most democrats go you're a stupid loser not even WORTHY of being around a modern day liberal.

They hate the police. They despise the military. If you're black and you support anything Trump they hate you too. If you're not gay they hate you. Even though most of them aren't gay. I don't quite get that. Kind of funny right. Straight white people hating straight white people for being straight and white. How's that work? No wonder their confused.

I'll tell you what I think the problem is. Hope and change turned out to be a disaster. Hope and change based on the principles they bought into didn't quite work out. Obama got elected and some people were expecting free health care, free college, you wouldn't have to work if you didn't want too. You would be free to pick your gender, pick your child's gender. Heck in the liberal world of hope and change everybody's farts were supposed to smell like tulips.

Seriously, what was the hope and change people we're looking for? What was it people wanted when Obama was elected. This isn't an anti-Obama rant. I'm asking a serious question. What was the hope and change people wanted?

For one thing there's a difference between liberal and progressive ideology. There's a big difference and I think that's part of the problem. They tend to band together like they think alike but they don't think alike. Throw into that that there's a big arm of the democrat party that's socialist and the whole thing turns into a giant crap storm.

Let's talk about the differences for second because I seriously doubt most people understand the difference. Liberals want to take from the rich and give to the poor. Plain and simple. That's the ideology. They sit there and talk about peace, love and happiness…why can't we all just get along… But, the ideology represents something else. These are the people that want this so called free college program.

What about this free college program is free? Nothing. It's not free. It's not like an online free program the government provides. Oh no, they want to TAKE it from the evil, evil rich people and give it to other people. How's that work?

I have go into this a little more here because it really calls out the absolute nonsense this ideology represents. An ideology MILLIONS of people buy into! So let's say this. College is supposed to give people the opportunity to make more money right? I mean are people going to college just for…what? So they can make more money right? Ok.

So, you want a program that is going to take from people that make more money so someone else can make more money, right? Isn't that what free college is really about? Take the money from people who have it and give it to people that don't have it, right? Ok great.

So what happens when the person on the receiving end of this so-called free college starts making money? What then they turn into an evil rich person and we take the money from them too? Except if you're one of the fools that bought into this circle jerk, guess what? You're the one it's getting taken from! Do you get that?

But, I'm getting off point here. Sorry I can never resist the urge to point out stupidity.

So liberals want to take from the rich and give to the poor. Now, the fact is most people are a little liberal. You might be saying NO WAY not me. Sure you are. You don't want to see people starving in the street. I know I don't. I don't mind giving a little money in the form of taxes to feed the needy. But, I'm not paying for their freaking COLLEGE! But, most people are a little liberal even if you don't want to admit it.

Progressives now, they think a little different. To them the evil lies with greedy corporations. They want to legislate, force companies to do what they want. This isn't all bad either. For example a progressive would believe in price controls on drug companies to stop this out of control price gouging. I agree with that. You might have heard me talk about it before. I think the whole medical industry should have price controls. Why is it I go to the doctor with my health insurance and the doctor gets paid say 50 bucks. And, a person with no insurance goes to the same doctor for the same service and gets hit with a $200 bill? How is that fair? It makes no sense. It should be regulated. That's a progressive ideology. So are the price controls on utilities and insurance. Those are progressive policies and they aren't all bad.

Then you have the socialists. Well they just want to TAKE IT ALL! Take it all and put everything under government control. College, health care, welfare and wealth fare because if you don't want to work well that's ok you deserve to be who you want to be and a socialist believes everybody should get a check. I'm not making this up. One socialist idea floating around the democrat party is for the government to take over all natural resources, oil, coal, metals, land, all of it and RE-DISTRIBUTE that back to the people. I just have one question about this ideology, what happens when nobody wants to work? This strategy might work when we all have robots I don't know.

I will say I am in favor of one socialist ideology. I don't know maybe it's progressive. Why is Facebook allowed to make all these billions for doing basically nothing? Take that money. Take all the money Facebook makes and use it to create a genuinely free online college program. Here's something funny about this. Mark Cluckerburg is about as left as you can get. Do you see him giving away his money to support these ideals he pushes? Nope. Why not?

Because all these leftist programs and ideas fail to take into account one major human trait. Selfishness. That's the reason it never works. And, the leftist, liberal, progressive, socialist whatever you want to call yourself fails to account for this basic human characteristic. You'll say oh why can't we all just cooperate? Stronger together! Together we can over come! Ah ok. How's that ever worked out?

It's never worked out. Whatever happened to rugged individualism, hard work and personal responsibility? Create a system that capitalizes on the inherent selfishness people have. The desire to succeed. Oh, wait we did that. Those were the ideals this country was founded on.

So what happened? How is it we went from being the land of opportunity to the cesspool or swap or whatever you want to call it we have today?

The problem isn't republican or democrat. It's not liberal or progressive or any these other words that nobody fully understands. The problem is lack of integrity and lack of common sense.

Let me go back to the free college idea. We have no integrity any more so we call things something they are not. Free college isn't free at all. Can we at least agree on that? So Bernie Sanders yells out FREE COLLEGE and millions of people jump on it. It's a lie. You're buying into a lie. That makes it real difficult to even have an intelligent conversation on the matter.

See if Bernie Sanders came out and said look I want to develop a government run website that offers a free online degree program. It's going to cost some money but to pay for it I'm going to put a tax on social media companies. See that's something we talk about. Whether you like it or not, whether you agree with it or not we can have a debate about it.

Free college the way he wants it is not something we can talk about. You can't debate lies. The people that think they'll benefit from it (that's that selfishness again) they're going to latch onto it. I say it's not free and they'll say well….I want it anyway.

Then there's the lack of common sense. I made this example earlier. If you didn’t already get it I'm not sure I can explain it any better. If the idea of free college is take money from people that have and give to people that don't have it so they can make more, won't they just have to give it back once they make it? I know some of you are just zoning out right now. I'll bet if I farted a tulip you'd ask for another too.

Lies and lack of common sense. What do you do about it?

Let go back to the whole hope and change thing that Obama voters bought into. What does it even mean? Let's start with the word hope. A feeling, expectation or desire for a certain thing to happen. A feeling of trust. A want of something to happen. That's the definition of hope. Ok, hope is good.

Then we have change to make or become different. So there was this popular opinion, this popular desire, an expectation that there would be change that things would be different. Ok, great. That what would be different?

Don't we all want the same thing? Opportunity? But, opportunity is scary for some people. See to have opportunity you have to have personal responsibility. You can't have one without the other.

Let me just use one tiny little example of the Obama era failed ideology of hope and change. Now, I really do believe, I could be wrong but just go with me for a second that he wanted to create opportunities for people that otherwise didn't have it.

So under the guise of blaming Bush's economic policies which were probably not better, Obama ran up 11 trillion dollars in debt. What does 11 trillion mean to you? Let me break it down. It's about 37 thousand dollars for every man woman and child in the country. So he spent, actually 11 trillion isn't what he spent. I'm just talking about the DEFICIT. This is the amount he spent OVER and ABOVE all the money taken in. The money he borrowed, 11 trillion dollars is 37 thousand dollars for every man woman and child in the country. So for a family of four that’s about 150 grand. Where'd that money go?

Did you get any of that money? Did it great vast amounts of opportunity? Has poverty been eradicated? Has homelessness been eradicated? Is college free? Is health care free? Where'd the money go?

So tell me where's the hope and change? How can there be hope and change built on lies? Tell me how that works?

That's why democrats AND republicans, everyone is so angry. The opportunity has been stolen by corruption. Lies. How many times did you hear Obama say so eloquently it's a little more complicated than that. It's not a simple problem. There's a lot more to it. What? What's so complicated? What's so hard about telling the truth and using common sense thinking?

Here's the bottom line. As long as you're looking to government to solve problems you're going to be disappointed. Until we get back to the days of understanding the inherent disappointment in government hope and change is a pipe dream. No more real than tulip scented flatulence.
