    Default Why I am a liberal…

    I want to change this…

    “Citizenship in western liberal democracies is the modern equivalent of feudal privilege and an inherited status that greatly enhances one’s life chances.

    Like feudal birthright privileges, restrictive citizenship is hard to justify.”

    Can you elaborate?

    Most people start out Liberal, (modern Liberals are BIG GUBMENT Fascist/Socialists), and as they learn how the world works, and the fact that Gubment regulation et al crushes personal Liberty they learn to become increasingly Conservative, (limited Gubment, personal Liberty), as they gain success in life.

    Why are you so upside down, were ya dropped on yer head at some point? Do ya suck on that Gubment tit, n' eat Gubmet cheese?

    Odd that he posts something so nebulous he can't even understand what he posted.

    Well, the people that are calling themselves "liberals" these days are not out to help Americans with upward mobility.
    To be fair, most of the Republicans of yesteryear were not either. Some are still around, like Romney. (He's a globalist shitbag)

    This is a new era where Democrats mostly are totalitarian communists and Republicans are mostly for upward mobility and preserving the Constitution.

    There are exceptions as people are very diverse. Gabbard good on the Democrats, Romney bad on the Republicans.

    We have had 40 years of globalist presidents that no matter the party they belonged to were there to strip rights from Americans, chip away at the Constitution, and demoralize the American people.

    It's time the people let them know we've had enough of that.

    Joe Biden is the epitome of a regime that has been fucking Americans over for 40 years. To impeach him is ludicrous because Harris is an even more inept Marxist fanatic.

    Just look at how the government is trying to dictate what people do with this Covid stuff. They got the news amping it up all the time, trying to throw people into a state of panic, the president running hard along the same line.

    Look at what you can't do now that you could 40 years ago with no problems.

    The thread title: "Why I am a liberal". The answers always lie in their own posts or quotes...
    Consider the Oyster.

    C-4 is just angry playdoh.
