Churchill vs the Home Grown Democrat
Today I heard a talking head Democrat describe liberalism as "The Politics of Being Nice".
Awww... Well isn't that special.
Zip it Hippie!
Unemployment in France, Germany, and Blessed England is hovering between 8 and 10 percent. While here, its 5.4%. Which of these countries would you like us to emulate again?
Sadly, intentions don't count for a thing. You may mean to help the poor, but if your policies end up causing rampant unemployment then you've screwed them just the same.
The politics of being nice. Have you ever heard such stupidity? What makes it worse is that they actually apply this "thinking" to their lives. They don't like to tell their kids No, so they don't. Because it's not nice. They'll let these kids be run-over, because they wanted to be nice, and let them play in the street.
Its enough to make you wish their parents had had a similar philosophy.
It goes to the core haze that liberals live behind. They ignore the Law of Unintended Consequences, and are regularly bitten on the butt by it. Let me give an example:
The steel workers want tarriffs on cheaper foriegn steel. They want "fairness". The F word... Use the F word around a liberal and watch him jump into action. Sadly that jumping hardly ever involves the nearest bridge. So anyway the liberal of course grants the tarriffs, which raises the price on the foriegn steel. Steel workers are happy. This is all the liberal sees.
What he does not see is that every manufacturing company in the country is now paying higher prices for steel. He doesn't see the higher prices this causes on all products produced with steel. Liberals will never understand that someone always has to pay. That someone by the way, is always you and me. You know they'll never understand... because if they did, they'd stop being liberals!
You want to help the poor? Bring in more business. As competition for the labor force increases, so will the wages. This is why Taco Bell pays 7 bucks an hour in Nashville, while manufacturing jobs in WV pay minimum wage.
We should round up all the liberals, and limit their discourse in national politics to idealic outcomes. We should use them to seek out noble goals, then we should go find conservatives to actually find a way to reach those goals.
Remember what Churchhill said about the politics of being nice?
"If you're 20 years old and you're not a liberal, you have no heart. If you're 40 years old and you're not a conservative, you have no mind."
Amen, and Amen.
