Do the fading generations conservatives need the young world liberals?

Deal Score0

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee.

The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards.

With his first swallow of water, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure their safety and that they work as advertised.

All but $ 10 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – now Joe gets it too.

He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total
contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.

Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for the laws to stop industries from polluting our air.He walks on the government-provided sidewalk to subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a conributor.

Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.

Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union.If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune. It is noon time and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime. Joe also forgets that his in addition to his federally subsidized student loans, he attended a state funded university.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards to go along with the tax-payer funded roads. He arrives at his boyhood home.

His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers’ Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification.

He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to.

Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.

Joe agrees: “We don’t need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I’m a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like. I have.”

    The world was just fine before the liberals screwed up everything.

    Yeah, that’s a great illustration. We know what it’s like when there’s no government, look at Somalia. These c0ns live in the safety and protection of systems and mechanism that they fought against, that liberals demanded.

    Freedom completely trumps all you have listed. I have never understood just what the hell liberals think gives them the right to pull other people in to their system! if you want to have socialism, Great i don’t care but leave me out of it. if you want to regulate everything go ahead but keep it to yourself and others who believe as you do.

    Without a doubt, Liberals are the only ones left fighting for the rights of the little guy.
    Republicans are now the old CONFEDERACY they prey on and get under educated,
    poor whites to believe that they too can own a business and pay poor wages if only the
    government would stay out of their way. This is the same as the Old Southern slave owners who
    got the stupid poor whites to fight for slavery even though many of them did not own slaves.

    You, my friend, are blinded by what you perceive to be a free benefit. What “us conservatives” are fighting against is not the improvement of our environment and society as a whole, but the forced improvement as dictated by a government that is not capable or willing to balance their own check book. If our free market were left alone, thousands of Americans would be profiting from the improvements you have outlined and offering real help and relief for those in our society that turn to the government now.

    What you are trying to perpetuate is a doctrine that in reality does not reflect your views. All of those examples are played out fully in our inner cities, with more subsidies being proposed each year. These inner cities do not reflect a grateful society, nor are they productive and high quality citizens. When have you heard a story of someone rising from the ashes of a suburb of Indianapolis? Never, because these suburbs are currently dominated by freedom believing conservatives that fight every day to make America a little better and to make enough profit to help others out when they can.

    Your sarcastic rant is screaming for scraps, when really what you want is the same thing each of us wants, a better environment and a more fulfilled society. Neither of which comes from a government program. America is better off with a very restricted government, maybe even to the point of being incidental. Have a great day!!
