Question: Is it so much that leftists are wrong in their thought-process or that they in a sense lack any sort of thought-process? Looking at evidence, the latter seems to hold a great measure of truth. In adopting a leftist outlook on life, one must in effect suspend reality and attempt to refute common sense. Common sense dictates that spending additional trillions on top of a multi-trillioin dollar national debt is a recipe for disaster. Common sense dictates that raising taxes in an economic recession does not encourage growth. Common sense dictates that the government cannot create wealth through mass redistribution of wealth. Yet, you see these contradictions propagated over and over without so much as brainwave being triggered in the process of doing so. Without even mentioning Obama, one can see the jaw-dropping rationale of leftist thought even in George Bush. "We had to abandon the free market system to save it." ~George W. Bush~ Really? Just try and think about that one and let me know if it makes any sense to you George. But, maybe Bush was just going a little senile towards the end of his term, so let's look at Obama. We are in the midst of a crisis that came about as a result of crushing debts and massive defaults on everything from mortgages to credit cards. So what do we do? Build up more debt to combat a debt-driven recession. I mean, makes sense right? Who wouldn't pour gasoline on a fire? Yet, as illogical as it sounds, it still flies. Only 52% of America is actually thinking in disapproving of Obama's completely nonsensical policies. Meanwhile, those that "approve" of Obama blankly nod their head in consent of spending to solve our spending problem, abandoning free market principles to save them, replacing entitlements with other entitlements in the name of "reform", cutting 0.0025 % of our budget while quadrupling it in the same stroke of a pen, and nationalizing industries in spite of abject nationalization failures such as Amtrak and the USPS. The definition of insanity is apparent, but the absence of thought does not permit the acceptance of reality and the common sense associated with doing so. While America is a house with ample fire protection, it is not invulnerable to a persistent inferno. So let's do ourselves a favor and reject leftism in effort to substitute water for gasoline.
