Review by Joan Swirsky of Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D. ‘‘The Liberal Mind The Psychological Causes of Political Madness’’ 2006, (Note pre-Obama) Dr. Rossiter's very illuminating and insightful book answers questions that many of us have asked about the essentially childlike behavior of liberals - for instance, their temper tantrums, sense of entitlement, intolerance, and grandiosity. While listing any number of liberals' infantile expectations - from a powerful parental government to a guarantee of material security from the state to laws that punish the "haves" for their excesses and compensate the "have-nots" for their pangs of envy to an international caring agenda that understands everyone's hardships and tolerates destructive actions by others, the list goes on - Rossiter concludes that, "these and other goals dear to the modern liberal heart are remarkable for the childhood needs they address and the adult needs they ignore." This is an important resource for those seeking to understand what makes the liberals among us tick. Joan Swirsky, NY-based journalist and author
See themselves as victims? That is a fundamental part of the neurosis known as liberalism.

Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D. ‘‘The Liberal Mind The Psychological Causes of Political Madness’’ 2006 (Note: pre-Obama) page 329: QUOTE What the liberal mind is passionate about is a world filled with pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice. Those who occupy this world are ''workers,'' ''minorities,'' ''the little guy,'' ''women,'' and the ''unemployed.'' They are poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised, exploited and victimized. They bear no responsibility for their problems. None of their agonies are attributable to faults or failings of their own: not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition, low frustration tolerance, mental illness or defects in character. None of the victims' plight is caused by failure to plan for the future or learn from experience. Instead, the ''root causes'' of all this pain lie in faulty social conditions: poverty, disease, war, ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice, ethnic and gender discrimination, modern technology, capitalism, globalization and imperialism. In the radical liberal mind, this suffering is inflicted on the innocent by various predators and persecutors: ''Big Business,'' ''Big Corporations,'' ''greedy capitalists, ''U.S. Imperialists,'' ''the oppressors,'' ''the rich,'' ''the wealthy,'' ''the powerful'' and ''the selfish.''

Why does health care cost too much in the USA? CATO Policy Analysis report No. 211 of 1994. Why Health Care Costs Too Much. Download it and read it. It was true in 1994 and true now no matter what the liberal thieves claim. Do you want to know the history of this something-for-nothing stupidity? Mona Charen wrote a great history of our pre-Obamacare health insurance perversion by the US government in “Republicans should prepare for the collapse of Obamacare” March 21, 2013. In short, she said they managed to change it from true insurance to compensation for labor. Small wonder healthcare “insurance” became ridiculous. Here is the US, we have a lot more predators feeding off the health care dollar: Approximate Lawyers per capita US 1/265 UK 1/401 Canada 1/485 Italy 1/488 Germany 1/593 France 1/1403 Another number one for the good old USA!!! The liberals will do NOTHING to stop the theft by the lottery called malpractice and all the extra associated costs. Because of tort reform, medical malpractice claims down in Ohio According to even the liberal New York Times, up to one-third of the $2 trillion of annual U.S. health care costs is spent on unnecessary hospitalizations and tests, ineffective new drugs and medical devices, unproven treatments, and unnecessary end of life care. That's right folks, you are not charged for your "longevity". You are not charged for your "medical outcome" You are charged for tests, procedures, drugs, visits, devices, etc. We get a LOT of that in the USA. Can anyone say defensive medicine?
Even a "picture" of a gun. Mind C.O.N.T.R.O.L. CONTROL control ........
Do you remember Hillary's fantastic genius performance in the commodities market some years back? Wow! She could solve the whole national debt problem with skill like that!
This is all these little miss victims can do. Call out racism racism racism racism,......
Just more liberal theft. Money, votes, whatever.
The only good murderer is a dead murderer!
This below from Walter Williams: Helping your fellow man in need by reaching into your own pocket is praiseworthy and noble. Helping your fellow man by reaching into someone else's pocket is worthy of condemnation. Today there are 108.5 million Americans receiving some form of welfare, but only 101.7 full-time workers paying for these benefits, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Both Democrats and Republicans are involved. - I'm afraid so, but liberal thieves claim it as an actual success!

It has been obvious to many for a long long time that liberals live in an emotional universe of beautiful "intentions" and there are no unintended consequences in that universe. Also, all possible costs for these "intentions" are trivial! So liberals deny, minimize, rationalize, out-and-out lie, etc.
