Greek mythology, with its tales of Zeus, Apollo and Hera doesn't have a thing on the mythology that liberals have created around themselves. There's Bubba, the President who can feel your pain, BO the leader who has the ability to never be blamed for anything and, of course, the wronged woman Fluke who the gods granted free birth control for the rest of her life for not being allowed to speak to a committee...or something. Still, as you're about to see, the real face of liberalism looks a lot more like Medusa than Aphrodite.
1) Liberals are pro-capitalism: Many liberals actually get offended if you call them socialists or worse yet, communists. This is like a wife-beater getting angry when you suggest that he doesn't love his wife. At a minimum, he doesn't love her enough not to smack her in the mouth just as liberals don't love capitalism enough to avoid undermining it at every opportunity. If you want to end inequality, tax the rich into the ground, create a massive government and have a social safety net the size of a small planet, you're not a capitalist. Sure, liberals may love that capitalist lifestyle, but they believe they can have that Soviet "economic equality" too, while forgetting that it always eventually comes with ugly concrete apartments and breadlines.
2) Liberals respect the Constitution: You can't claim to value and respect the Constitution while saying that there is such a thing as a "living constitution," which in practice is nothing more than calling the whims and prejudices of liberal justices “Constitutional Law.” This is what liberals believe in and yet, they still want to have it both ways. First, there's a debate about what the Constitution actually says, but if liberals don't happen to be in the right, they still want left-wing judges to rule in their favor anyway. That isn't constitutional law or even law at all; it's slipping the umpires $50 before the game and asking them to call the balls and strikes your way.
