A couple of weeks ago, I offered my absentee ballot to the first liberal/progressive/democrat who could tell me why (if liberal policies are so wonderful) is it that every city, state and country they run is swirling down the drain.
It doesn't matter if we're talking about Detroit, California, or Greece. Show me a government entity in financial distress and I'll show an entity run by a pack of "progressives".
On this blog, no one took me up on the challenge. On my facebook page, one liberal decided to call me a name instead of actually answering the question; which is how they usually operate.
So let me throw this out today. Can anyone name one problem that a liberal/progressive/democratic program actually solved?
Let's take poverty. After all the trillions of dollars spent on poverty programs since the 1960's what is the current state of poverty in this country?
Or let's take homelessness. I think we can all agree that homelessness is a bad thing. The city of San Francisco spends a half a BILLION dollars a year in homeless programs (just city money, not federal, state or private charities). My community of Maineville OH spends zero, zip, nada. Which city has the homeless problem?
Or let's take the grand poobah of liberalism...... secondary education. As a society, we've expanded Pell grants and student loan programs and tax credits all over the place. Is education more affordable today than it was 10 years ago? How about twenty?
What about primary education? Sure, your kid can tell you all about global warming, just don't ask them to make change for a twenty.
What the hell does it say about your thought patterns when the overwhelming evidence says liberalism doesn't solve any problems and turns totally functioning communities into shit holes and yet you still support such programs and policies?
They say that the ultimate definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
So wouldn't it be logical that if you're liberal, you must be insane as well?
