However, I view "liberals" as they are loosely defined(which means they could be Democrat, Republican, or "liberal" politically) as no better than robbers, thieves, and kings. I take it a step further than most here probably do. I have a tendency to be honest(which usually translates to BLUNT).
Liberals effectively use the government as a strong-arm to rob from me, whether it be in the form of money, work or effort, and either use it themselves or give it to someone else who didn't earn it and doesn't deserve it. They seem to be under the delusion that some random collective of people have more value than the individual. Sorry, but you asked.
I value the rights of the individual above all others. These days I consider myself a slave. I produce a good or a value and someone else consumes it. The fruits of my effort is not a collective pool for everyone to dip what they need out.
Ok...back on topic before I get a nasty-mod-gram in my box.
Excellent article though.
