Why does liberalism exhibit self-destructive behavior?
April 26, 2011 Posted by Craig Covello craigt
past week, I was having a conversation with my friend Bruce. He is a
staunch conservative, as am I, so predictably the subject of politics
was raised. More specifically, we talked about the seemingly bizarre
behavior that has been demonstrated by progressive liberals. This
behavior been going on for decades, and now it seems as if it is
reaching a crescendo as Obama begins his campaign for 2012. Then I
suggested to Bruce that liberalism is for all intents and purposes
self-destructive. Why? Because it appears as if progressives are on
the wrong side of every issue that would sustain their longevity. Here
are a few examples -
  • Liberals would like to see a declining
    US population through any means necessary, so it’s no surprise that they
    are likely to advocate for abortion on demand. It’s also no surprise
    that White House science czar John Holdren proposed forced sterilization
    using methods as frightening as spiking the public water supply. This
    was documented in his 1973 book “Human Ecology: Problems and
    Solutions”. So while the rest of the world’s population is increasing,
    progressives would like to see American’s population decrease. And less
    population means less progressives.

  • The Obama
    administration, including Atty. Gen. Eric Holder’s Justice Department,
    refuses to confront or even acknowledge radical Islam’s jihad against
    the United States. In fact, Holder could not even bring himself to use
    the term “radical Islam” during Senate subcommittee hearings last year.
    Predictably, this administration wanted to close Guantánamo Bay and try
    terrorists under legal system designed for Americans. And, of course,
    Obama was slow to address the massacre at Fort Hood. All these actions
    illustrate that any aggressive behavior exhibited by radical Muslims
    desiring a caliphate has been downplayed by the White House. So I
    wonder if liberalism would survive under institutionalized sharia law
    worldwide.

  • Similarly, the National Organization
    for Women has been stone silent regarding the treatment of females
    under sharia law. Again, I doubt that NOW would survive under a Muslim
    dominated culture. Yet NOW voices no objections.

  • It’s
    clear that Obama has weakened our military during his presidency. The
    giveaways to Russia contained in the new START treaty are testament to
    our declining nuclear capability. If nations hostile to US interests
    eventually gain a strategic nuclear advantage under this plan, it’s not
    beyond reason to believe that the United States could be attacked.
    Sometimes the unthinkable is precisely that, “unthinkable”, because of
    the nuclear deterrent muscle flexed by the United States. Reducing the
    influence of that deterrent means increasing the risk to American
    lives. And those Americans targeted would include liberals, wouldn’t
    they?

  • The liberal Congress last year refused to
    pass a budget while Obama increased our spending by another $4
    trillion. And progressive radicals such as Francis Fox Piven have
    dedicated their careers to destroying the US economy by advocating for
    increased entitlements intended to crash the financial system. Compound
    that with liberals, such as George Soros, who openly call for a “new
    world order” that would replace the need for US leadership and
    influence. So it begs the question; what would happen to American
    liberal politics if America no longer existed as we know it? Would
    liberals be free to express themselves under an authoritarian central
    socialist/communist government? Probably not.

  • Progressives
    have been responsible for draconian environmental laws which have made
    our country unacceptably dependent upon foreign oil. As a result, we
    purchase energy from nations who are openly hostile to US interests.
    This also has a destructive influence on our foreign policy, since we
    must walk a fine line between supporting freedom in the world and
    appeasing dictatorial regimes that happen to be placed upon geologically
    rich oil reserves. Sorry, but most of the liberals I know consume just
    as much energy, if not more, than their conservative counterparts. No,
    foreign oil dependence does not seem to be in the best interests of an
    indulgent liberal lifestyle. Particularly in Hollywood.

So
in the final analysis, it makes you wonder how liberalism can survive
if its ultimate objectives are reached. Unless, of course, the real
objective is to extinguish itself. Ironic, isn’t it?

    In all the years since D-Day, there are three occasions when the president failed
    to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.

    The occasions were:

    1. Barack Obama 2010

    2. Barack Obama 2011

    3. Barack Obama 2012
    For the past 68 years, all presidents, except Obama, have paid tribute to the fallen soldiers killed on D-Day. This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.

    See you can't really put what is going on in Washington in 1 catagory. Socialism. A fasist government. Liberal ideas without the resources to fund them. While the ex middleclass like me scratch our heads and ask We did everything right ,Why did they steal it. Why didn;t somebody go to jail?

    I'd not call it liberalism, which has been rendered largely without meaning, but
    YES collectivism is self-destructive; Force is self-destructive, and Government itself with it's Rulers is now on the path to destroy humanity.

    Before 1913, but that year was the big kickoff.
