From a liberal perspective, the current situation could not be better. The republicans are more liberal than ever before and many in the party want to take it even further left. And the same can be said for the democrats. The Whitehouse has never had a more liberal occupant in the history of the country. Congress is as left as it has ever been. Government spending is through the roof, a massive sprawling federal bureaucracy is growing by leaps and bounds and shows only signs of growing faster and faster. Taxes are going to go through the roof. More people than ever get government handouts of one kind or another as the feds try to take over healthcare. Capitalism, personal responsibility and limited government are all old ideas that are out of fashion. But the libtards are not happy. If this were the other way, if both parties were doing their level best to shrink government, if federal debt was dropping, and the government was kicking people off of welfare, if taxes were being cut, if personal responsibility and limited government were the norms, if we were taking a giant step towards liberty I'd have a smile you could not remove. I'd be fully invested in the markets, working hard to make more money and planning to retire early. I'd be one happy, optimistic individual, tell you what. I'd be happy because the present would be good and the future bright. But libtards are not happy. They too know that liberalism does not make for a brighter day. They know that the only end for socialism is misery. Yet they choose it anyway.
