I can't find an honest liberal to ask this question to. What I want to know is: what do they really want? Since no liberal is willing to honestly answer this question, I just have to go by what they've been saying for years in the public sphere. Based on what I've read and on what I've heard, I have to just assume that what they want is heaven on Earth. They want a Utopian society. Am I wrong? They want every hungry-belly, fed. They want every naked body, clothed. They want the sick healed, the angry soothed, the ignorant taught, the aroused satisfied, and the foolish given wisdom. Liberals want everything!
But, no, that's not it exactly, because they are themselves perfectly aware that while wants are infinite, resources are finite. So, liberals understand that they can't have everything. They get that, but then they take that small understanding and then they just run with it, kind of like Forrest Gump.
In their simplistic ideology, resources are finite. There's just enough to go around, but the mean rich people seem to have hoarded away all the resources and left nothing for the poor. Therefore, the liberal's solution to creating a perfect Utopian society is always to redistribute the wealth around. That's what they want every single time. Tax the rich. They want less rich people. Their quest is for the perfect society where no one is rich and no one is poor. Where might I find a place like that?
In the child-like mind of the liberal, life is like snacktime at kindergarten. There's a package of cookies and there's a jug of milk, and everyone is supposed to be given their fair share by the big person in charge. If a kid somehow winds up with more cookies, that's not fair. His extra cookies should be taken away. If a kid didn't get a fair share of milk, that kid will be given more. If a kid tries to bring his own deluxe chocolate chip cookies and eat those instead, the teacher will tell that kid that he can't do that unless he brought enough chocolate chip cookies for the whole class.
Yes, kindergarten is the closest thing to utopia any of us will ever see. What a perfect place! Nothing is demanded of us. Whatever we paint or draw is praised by the big person in charge. If someone speaks meanly to us we can tell on them and they'll get in trouble and be made to stand in the corner. We get lunch and snacks and nap-time and if we have an accident in our pants, why the big person in charge will take care of that too. It's no wonder why liberals want to recreate that perfect seeming world out in the real world.
Here's where the dividing line separates the liberals from the conservatives. Conservatives understand that the real world can't be kindergarten perfect. In the real world people do what best serves their own self-interest. If liberal kindergarten rules are applied to the real world there are immediate negative consequences.
Some specific examples include taxing the rich and redistributing their wealth to the poor. The consequences are immediate and negative. The poor receiving the wealth are happy doing nothing. They're back in their kindergarten heaven. Meanwhile the wealthy are moving somewhere with lower taxes. So ask yourself this simple question: which is better, a smaller slice of a real big pie, or a bigger slice of nothing at all? California's liberals have run wild. As a result of this the wealthy and private industry of every kind are packing up and moving out. Vast swaths of the urban centers in this state will soon look eerily similar to Detroit.
Some liberals might have thought that kindergarten was great. I thought it was boring and pointless, and the only thing I actually learned in kindergarten, was not to bring anymore deluxe chocolate chip cookies.
