Why I believe Liberals have arrested development

There's a common belief that political Liberals just can't help being Liberals. I've come to agree with that belief.

Some may chalk it up to "mental illness", and while that may be so, I've arrived at a different explanation: "arrested development." It's my view that Liberals' development has been arrested somewhere in the 8 - 12 year old range.


Why do I believe this? Well, if you look at the various views that Liberals hold, the common thread is they're all very child-like. They never seem to acknowledge the principles by which the adult world operates.

For example, Liberals always seem to want everything to be "fair". If anyone has a nice house, then everyone should have a nice house. If anyone owns a cell phone, everyone should own a cell phone. If anyone has cable TV, everyone should have cable TV.

Also as with children, Liberals accept at face value everything their leaders say, and believe in their hearts that everything their leaders do is right. In other words, Liberals view their political leaders very much the way children view their Mommies and Daddies.

And when Mommy and Daddy don't "like" someone, children usually don't
like them either. This explains why Liberals view everything their opponents say and do as "bad", even while their Mommies and Daddies do the same exact things!

A great example of this is that when a Republican President taps foreign phone calls made by suspected terrorists, Liberals scream bloody murder and it's the end of civil rights. But when Daddy murders suspected terrorists in cold blood without a trial, Liberals brag about it on bumper stickers and consider it a winning campaign issue!

And like children, Liberals exhibit childhood rebellion. Liberals freely acknowledge that they love to be "edgy": primarily defined by including the f-word in the entertainment they produce and consume - and in their everyday speech. What clearer form of childish rebellion is there than the thrill of saying "dirty words?

As with children, Liberals lack perspective on events and issues because they have little knowledge of history.

The best example is how they view the attacks on President Obama as "racism", completely ignorant of the fact that the last time a Liberal was in the White House (Clinton), he was white - and was attacked with equal, if not greater, intensity.

We're all well aware of how children lack any sense of the value of money. To children - and to Liberals - money is something that is just always "there", but comes from somewhere else.

Left to their own devices, children will spend whatever money they have, and whatever they can borrow from others, like there's no tomorrow. This explains why the current administration has racked up more debt than all previous administrations combined.


But let's keep in mind the biggest difference between children and Liberals. Whereas it's difficult if not impossible to disown children - to kick them out - before they're 18 years old, it will be a lot easier to kick out this Liberal administration when it's only 4 years old!

    I concur and so, apparently, do others! Veteran psychiatrist, Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., in his book entitled "THE LIBERAL MIND:The Psychological Causes of
    Political Madness", makes a very convincing case that the mental-emotional world of leftists is actually tantamount to a mental disorder.

    Says Rossiter. “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

    “The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

    Sound familiar?

    They don't have 'attested development', they simply refuse to think for their selves.

    is that what you call your post? Is that what this place is for? A discussion? Do you really believe what you're saying? I understand you need to believe that your vision isn't failing. I understand that you need to have your beliefs reaffirmed. I understand your desperate need to be right, and that it sickens you to the very core to not be sure...So...you may carry on with your little meeting.

    Funny how the actual data shows us that the genetic flaw is quite literally in the Conservative mind.

    Look through History - the Conservatives have always been the losers. ...and they are losers now.

    They lost the Civil War... They lost the war on racism... The war on women's rights.. They lost the war on pornography... on Profanity... on abortion... on homosexuality... on hair... on Viet Nam.. on fashion... on honesty...

    Gasp! Egad! By JOVE!!! Funny, huh - how people STILL want to so desperately cling to a losing team.

    And do you know why they ALWAYS lose!??

    It's really sooo simple! It's because you get a bunch of old-timers who are witnessing cultural and even moral evolution - which they can scarcely comprehend it. They are resistant to change - because of FEAR... You cannot have conservatism without FEAR.

    ERGO - Conservatives will NECESSARILY ALWAYS BE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY.

    This is why nearly all of them are religious... The SHEEP need a SHEPHERD! THey are easily led - easily brainwashed -

    The good news is - that they ALWAYS become obsolete. ALWAYS.

    Most of them are usually older - and eventually die out... This is why History ALWAYS TRENDS TO THE 'LEFT'.

    The facts are:

    - Jesus ain't never coming back...
    - Abortion will always be legal - a...

    - Abortion will always be legal - and one day - everyone will finally realize that a fetus is not a little cute baby cooing in someone's arms.... It's a BLASTOCYST!
    - Gay is OK - and not a threat to anyone.
    - Greed is BAD - and will one day be shunned...
    - All races are equally beautiful and equally equal...
    - Women are equal in value to men and should be respected as humans - as much as anyone else.
    - Porn is sex... that's all.. it is the most natural thing in the World - the only time it is a "problem" is when it is stigmatized. There is nothing wrong with the sex act or the human body.
    - there is no such thing as a "bad" word. it is always relative to the insecurities of the prevalent culture.
    - Evolution is a fact - just like gravity.
    - It's OK to err on the side of caution when it comes to man contributing to Global Warming... It's kinda important, you know?

    and so on... and so on.....

    Well, you've certainly written a pile of unwarranted assertions, slanders and hateful rhetoric. Not backed up by any examples. And all of it irrelevant to the topic.

    In short - it amounts too "nyaaah nyaaah, no, YOU are!"

    But thanks for the data point!

    All those things: pornography, homosexuals, women's rights, slavery... are issues that Conservatives have lost.

    It was the Progressives who freed the slaves, won the Civil War, gave women the right to vote...

    Every one of these issues was opposed by the Conservatives of the day - and much, much more...

    I'm sorry I cannot give you four years of History classes - but if you had an ounce of legitimate and untainted curiosity about truth - you'd already be keen to the fact that Conservatism has always been the losing side.
