Why aren't the liberals happy?

    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.
  2. If the ET P&R Forum is any indicator, you are dead wrong in your assessment.

    The Reichtard Republicans have never been so angry and frustrated, just pay attention to the posts.

    Then look to the post by the liberals.

    No contest as to is unhappy...

    The Reichtards are beside themselves being powerless, and if you have really been paying attention, these same Reichtards were bitching and moaning, complaining constantly during the time when Bush controlled the three branches of government...

    IMO, if we actually have a moderate POTUS, then we will see always see unhappiness on the extremes, the fringe elements of both the right and the left, and the moderates will be rather content...

    The extreme left isn't happy with Obama because of many of his decisions, the extreme right is of course crazy as usual, and the typical Reichtard is pissing themselves daily...

  3. AGREE!!!

    this also explains why conservatives are a bit peeve nowadays ... we are well aware of what these people .. (Leftist controlled House, Senate, Presidency ... and lord help us Supreme court) ... are capable of.

    Pouring water down the throats of sworn enemies of this country apparently is where they draw the line.
    Everything else is on the table.


    Edit: Liberals will only be happy when the misery is spread equally, er ... fairly. (Each according to his means, or rather, lack of means)
