Political Morality?

Liberal-progressives deny the existence of moral principles, but don’t hesitate to employ moral rhetoric to cudgel those who disagree with them.

Liberal-Progressive Oppression

Add attempts to criminalize opinions expressed by religious leaders to the list of government oppression that egregiously includes the IRS’s working to put out of business any opinion group that opposes Obama’s reckless, anti-Constitutional socialization of our nation.


SERMONIZING POLS
They choose political correctness over religious freedom.

What Motivates Liberal-Progressivism?

The Case Against Liberal Compassion


The writer probes the sentiments driving individual liberal-progessives’ knee-jerk reactions. 

In politics, however, sentiments are less admirable (if we can consider blind adherence to liberal-progressivism admirable at all).  Politicians supporting the welfare state, on both sides of the political aisle, are merely purchasing votes or rewarding financial supporters.  Politicians who support the welfare state for any other reason are either incompetent or engaging in self-delusion.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Is Less Affordable

Now There Can Be No Doubt: Obamacare Has Increased Non-Group Premiums In Nearly All States


The National Bureau of Economic Research, created in the 1930s to churn out statistics supporting New Deal socialism, demonstrates that the administration is yet again misleading the public.

The message is loud and clear: socialism does not cut costs or increase efficiency; it merely steals from producers and uses the proceeds to buy votes.

Too Much Money, Too Little Growth

Steve Forbes provides a timely summation:

Money Is Not Wealth—But It Helps Create Wealth

Quote:

“Money measures wealth; it is not wealth itself. It is a claim on products and services that people have created. That’s why counterfeiting is illegal; it’s thievery. But when government does this, it’s called quantitative easing, or stimulus.”

The Metastasis Of ClimateGate Criminality

The Global Warming Money Nexus Corrupts Real Climate Research

 

Our Divisive, Racist President

Comparing American Cops with Islamic Terrorists
With his U.N. speech, President Obama sinks to a shameful new low.

Attorney General Eric Holder having announced his pending resignation, to carry on the administration’s blatantly anti-white racism, President Obama’s best appointment would be Al Sharpton, a self-promoting liar with many years’ experience fomenting riots, looting, and black mob attacks on policemen.

Big Brother Will Watch Over Your Children

Connecticut’s latest proposal to control people’s daily lives is reminiscent of atheist Richard Dawkins’s assertion that people who do not believe in Darwinian evolution should have their children taken away and placed under care of the socialist political state.

Authentic Liberal-Progressivism

New York City, the nation’s largest, overwhelmingly socialistic city, shows the way.  It’s all about class warfare.
