If a Republican doesn't like something, he/she doesn't participate in it. Democrats don't like something, they make laws so NO ONE can enjoy whatever it is they don't like. The Liberals have already messed with my light bulbs and my dishwasher detergent (I didn't know I had the chance to voice my opposition to these changes, but my voice would have disappeared down the hole just like my petition signature AGAINST Obamatax. THAT carried a lot of weight, too, along with the millions of others who signed the same petition. I hate Democrats. They're miserable, so they want to make the rest of us miserable too by taking away the few things we CAN enjoy--adequate light in our homes and clean dishes. So far our toilet paper is safe. So far.

It's actually worse than that.

They genuinely believe themselves to be so very much smarter than you that they have a natural right to tell you how to live your life, a duty, even. They believe you have not the slightest clue how to live properly, and that you and I will destroy the planet with our ignorance if we are left to ourselves. Not only do they not feel the slightest remorse for removing your liberty, they don't even listen to you when you speak. They know you are wrong, because you're just not as smart as they are.

Or worse, you're religious, which means you are not even willing to think. Either way, your words do not reach them.

Progressives are tyrants at the root of their being.

they are useful idiots to tyrants. that is worse, because they maintain his grip and there are more of them than of us, as the last two elections clearly prove.

First, they came for the smokers.

No one would argue smoking is good for you. But it’s legal; growing tobacco is even subsidized by the government. Yet, when governments started limiting the right of people to smoke in places public and private, non-smokers did nothing. They didn’t like smoke; they’d heard second-hand smoke was dangerous. Why should they allow owners of private establishments to choose whether those establishments allowed people to engage in a legal – in fact, subsidized -- activity?

Then, they came to “clean up” the healthcare mess. They would take the sick and poor off...
