    Part history- part prognostication....

    Shortly, ‘Liberals’ will be gone. Why? Mark Twain had the right idea: "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme."


    1. Under the first Progressive President, Woodrow Wilson, America was the world’s first fascist nation, complete with first modern propaganda ministry, political prisoners by the thousands, 100,000 government propaganda agents, a quarter million ‘goons’ were given legal authority to beat and intimidate and widespread censorship.
    http://www.ncpa.org/pdfs/Classical_Liberalism_vs_Modern_Liberal_Conservatism.pdf p. 9

    2. The result? “The United States presidential election of 1920 was dominated by the aftermath of World War I and the hostile reaction to Woodrow Wilson, the Democratic president. [Republican] Harding's victory remains the largest popular-vote percentage margin (60.3% to 34.1%) in Presidential elections after the so-called "Era of Good Feelings" ended with the victory of James Monroe in the election of 1820. ” United States presidential election, 1920 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    a. Wait for similar results in November!




    3. So, the chameleon-like Left did the only thing it could do! ‘In the United States, where liberalism most clearly reversed its meaning, in common parlance, it was the socialist John Dewey who openly promoted the idea of stealing the liberal label. [Socialists] knew that [classical] liberalism had a good reputation with the working classes — the very audience which they were targeting. The idea was to adopt the name liberal to describe socialism.’ They changed the name!! Sneaky?? http://orlingrabbe.com/lfetimes/liberal_confusion.htm

    a. Change the name from socialist, and progressive....to liberal!!!




    4. A straight line can be drawn from Karl Marx and Georges Sorel up to our current version. History has regularly shown how wrong the theories are, so victory requires misdirection, fabrication…and a way to diminish the truth: the answer is the philosophical doctrine known as Postmodernism.

    a. … postmodernism is based on the position that reality is not mirrored in human understanding of it, but is rather constructed as the mind tries to understand its own personal reality. Postmodernism is therefore skeptical of explanations that claim to be valid for all groups, cultures, traditions, or races, and instead focuses on the relative truths of each person…. Postmodernism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    b. … truth has fallen in priority to ideology, also known as the ‘greater truth’ of pre-formed conclusions. A case in point is climate change. Normal science discovers facts, and then constructs a theory from those facts. ‘Post-modern science’ starts with a theory that is politically sensitive, and then makes up facts to influence opinion in its favor.
    Melanie Philips, “The World Turned Upside Down”




    5. “ President Obama often speaks in postmodern language. For example, here is part of a discussion of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in his book, The Audacity of Hope:

    “Implicit in [the Constitution's] structure, in the very idea of ordered liberty, was a rejection of absolute truth, the infallibility of any idea or ideology or theology or “ism,” any tyrannical consistency that might lock future generations into a single, unalterable course, or drive both majorities and minorities into the cruelties [notice cruelty: he's against it] of the Inquisition, the pogrom, the gulag, or the jihad.”

    Obama's point here is that absolute truth and ordered liberty are incompatible, because absolute truth turns its believers into fanatics or moral monsters. https://www.hillsdale.edu/news/imprimis/archive/issue.asp?year=2010&month=0

    a. So...if you believe that there is no absolute truth, no real right and wrong, no good or evil...hey, you're a Liberal, a Progressive....a Postmodernist!!!




    5. So…where will the “Liberals” go when they disappear? No where….they’ll simply change their name…to….”PostMods!”


    a. But know this: ‘Barack Obama stuck his foot in his mouth today when he said "you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig" ‘BARACK OBAMA: PUT LIPSTICK ON A PIG, IT'S STILL A PIG - NYPOST.com

    He didn't realize that he was applying same to his views.

    I sure hope liberalism dies soon. If it does not, America as we know it, will.

    Sadly liberalism had done great damage.

    Wilson was one of our worst presidents, but much of what he accomplished we still suffer under ie. the federal reserve, income tax, ignored the Constitution repeatedly, statism, war-making, interventionism, League of Nations (forerunner of the UN), gov control of the economy, and on and on....

    So, if history is a guide...the damage done by the socialist BO and the progressive W will stay will us for a long time.

    Actually, gip....I wasn't saying that the folks who call themselves Liberals will be gone....

    ....I was saying that they would play the ol' 3-card Monte, and try to fool folks by changing their name to PostMods.

    They were successful once before.....

    ...but I think folks are smarter now.

    yawn, same old shit from an extremist that thinks they know it all. If the GOP could handle it then why didn't they do anything to oh say, stop individual taxes? Welfare, political prisoners, public parks, public golf courses, govt. control of economy, Dept of ed, UN membership, etc, etc? When they have controlled the govt.

    I'll tell you what, you dip shit. I have probably worked harder in my life than you can possibly fathom, but the good news is:

    That's got nothing to do with the topic under discussion. Your deflection is a fail, you imbecile.
