One thing I’ve noticed about progressives or as talk show host Vicki McKenna accurately named them, authoritarian socialists, is that in general, these observations apply. Of course, there are always exceptions.
One, they’re typically emotional, which makes them emotional-based decision-makers. Instead of using their heads, they let their emotions rule them, which is why a lot of conservatives can’t understand or relate to them.
Two, they project onto others their own evil intent and their own distrust of people. They aren’t trustworthy (and they know it), so they project that lack of trust on others. Conservatives on the other hand project their trust and honesty onto others, which leads conservatives and to being taken advantage of. Ninety years of trusting the left since FDR has gotten us nowhere, well, except like chasing a rabbit going down a hole, it’s made things dark, cold, and scary.
Three, libs love power, more than even money, and they love telling others what to do, which leads them to seek more power at any cost.
Fourth, with libs, the end justifies the means, which can be a very dangerous calculation – for the rest of us! They’ll do anything to obtain their end goal, no matter what. They’ve proven that they’ll destroy lives, trash cities, let criminals roam free like it’s the Purge, lie, cheat, and steal, anything to grab more power. Conservatives, yeah, many of them like money, but they put God and country first and second, then family, health, and then the money they need to secure their family’s financial security.
Fifth, authoritarian socialists don’t see the irony in the positions they stake out. They’ll trash the country to ‘save it’. They’ll ignore the beginnings of WW3 while pushing their green agenda, handcuffing America from saving the world, let alone America itself. They’ll fly their private jets, spewing lead-based fuel vapor in the air on the way to their climate change conferences where they tell the rest of us to stay home! They’ll drive their car in from the suburbs while telling us to live downtown and take a bus.
They’ll send their kids to private schools while telling us to send our kids to broken public schools. They complain about the F-35s but they enjoy the security they provide. They’re against a war in which the U.S. defends itself from terrorists, but they’re gung-ho about wars in other countries, well, except when Israel defends itself.
They profess to believe in fair and honest elections, well, except when they cheat in ten different ways to manufacture more votes – or in the case of Florida – to cancel their own primary to prevent competitors from even having an election!
How bad does this have to get before regular Americans who aren’t leftists overwhelm the ballot box so much, as they did in 2016, to swamp all the phony ballots? It’s so important that every red-blooded American get out and recruit family and friends to actually vote. No more sitting at home. No more arguing within the party. No more crying because your candidate didn’t make it through the primary. You have to play for the team, not yourself.
