    When John Bolton was asked the question of what he thought was the greatest misconception that Democrats have about Republicans, I honestly didn’t expect such a brilliantly deep answer. I guess I’ve gotten used to fluff. But Bolton hit it out of the park and I just had to start the day with it:

    The biggest misconception Republicans have is that somehow liberty is a value that only applies to their party

    Bolton comes across like a pompous, mean old white man which of course turns a lot of people off.

    But he is smart as hell, and like a lot of us arrogant old white fellows, we are usually right.

    What's not a misconception at all, is the observations that Republicans don't live up to this ideal. Don't even really try. Their passion for 'liberty' is utterly selective - perhaps even more so than it is for 'libruls'. Ask the banksters about failure as an 'option'.

    And?

    No one disagrees with this, particularly democrats and progressives. It would seem the misconception belongs to the republicans.

    What the right fails to understand is that liberals and progressives don’t adhere blindly to political dogma – a pragmatic approach is always best.

    The fact is for millions of Americans ‘competition’ is simply not an option, for reasons of age or health, for example. And there’s no point in a civilized society to allow those who fail to be left to die and rot on the roadside.

    Conservatives would be well-advised to come out of their fantasy dream-world from time to time and experience reality and the truth. It can’t do them any harm.

    For millions more Americans failure is a choice they make for themselves, then pretend they are too pathetic to take care of themselves.

    The occupy movement and every protester in it was a shining example of such choice.

    Good grief indeed. Not sure it's on topic, but it's worth pointing out the core assumption behind this notion - namely that government is the only vehicle for compassionate society (or even a good one). Anyone who dares to question this assumption is attacked with "let 'em die!" demagoguery.
