Parker says, "There is no problem facing America today that liberals do not believe should be solved by more government and less freedom."
I believe this is so because (so-called) Liberals are essentially, elitists. They just KNOW they are smarter, have higher moral standards, are more compassionate, perceptive, sensitive, etc. than other human beings. For them, it just wouldn't be right to let those other slobs out there not benefit from the Liberals' more-refined sensibilities.
I call it Social Worker Syndrome, if you've ever had to deal with one.
