You Might be a Modern Liberal if…

Today, our Government intrudes into too many areas of our lives. The reason is simple. It is a cornerstone of Socialists dogma that the government knows best. That doesn’t make sense and doesn’t work.  The contradictions should cause our modern liberals heads to explode. For example-

If you think that all police are racist, but you think that only the police should have guns, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think that we need a high minimum wage or else we all would work for free, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think that blacks need the government to get fair treatment, but you would rather face extradition than move your family to a Democrat controlled city like Chicago, Philadelphia or Baltimore, then you might be a modern liberal.

You hate big companies like Walmart because they drive out competition, but you don’t mind forcing children to attend government run schools, then you might be a modern liberal.

You trust the government even though we have not voted a big city politician out of office in years, but you don’t trust companies where you can stop buying their products in a second, then you might be a modern liberal.

You respect an individual’s “right to choose” when a young woman wants to kill her baby, but you’re not “pro-choice” when a young woman wants to protect her children with a gun, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think that you can’t afford to pay your doctor, but you think you can afford to pay a government bureaucrat, pay political bribes and special interests, and still pay your doctor, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think business are corrupt.. until they give your candidate a few hundred million dollars, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think that there are not enough jobs, so we need more laws regulating companies to hire more people, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think we should legalized marijuana because prohibition fails, but you want to make guns illegal because gun prohibition will work, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think taxing gasoline, cigarettes, and alcohol reduces consumption, but you think taxing the rich doesn’t have any effect on starting companies and making jobs, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think you have a right to an abortion because you are in control of your body, but you think it is good policy to force other people to pay for your abortion because other people don’t have control of their body, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think we need a law that forces honest people to register guns, because that way criminals, who break the law for a living, won’t get guns, then you might be a modern liberal.

You are “pro-choice” about vaccinating your children, but are against other parents teaching their children at home, then you might be a modern liberal.

You think ordinary people succumb to temptation. That is why we need the government to run our lives.. and because we’ve never seen politicians succumb to temptation.. then you might be a modern liberal.. and probably didn’t read this far.
