Re: Politically Corrected
Good post, MarlinT. This very well written article makes the assumption that liberals are logical. They aren't. Liberalism cannot be defended or argued logically using the Constitution as a foundation. This is the reason for political correctness and the re-defining of terms. Hold liberalism up to the light of the Constitution, only accept logical arguments from a liberal and you will quickly see that liberals are anti-Constitution and, thus anti-American.
And liberals realize this. That is why they redefine such terms as patriotism. Their definition of patriotism is to loudly criticize the president (I have heard them state this). However that patriotism is one way. They do not accept criticism of liberal politicians as patriotic. That becomes slander, hatred and evil. In short, liberals are hypocrits by necessity. Hypocracy is neccessary to defend liberalism because it cannot be defended logically.
Another reason that liberals are anti-Constitution, as well as anti-Supreme Being, is that they cannot stand an ultimate authority that does not change. They have to use situational ethics to defend their positions. God and the Constitution as an ultimate authority are counter to situational ethics. There can be no ultimate truth, no higher power if one is to use situational ethics. Thus, the anti-Christian and anti-religion stance of liberals and their invented concept of the Constitution as a living document, which changes with the times (read - changes as they wish it to change).
That said, a recent study conducted by a university (I forget which one; I'd have to dig that back out) found that people, regardless of political ideology, tend to ignore and diregard facts and evidence that is contrary their views. This applies equally to conservatives and liberals and Repubs, Dems, and Libertarians.
