You say you want a revolution...

Deep Thoughts from The American Thinker.

[N]ow we can see clearly what's been happening in the United States during the last three decades. While conservatives have been working to improve our democracy and our free-market economy, liberals have been working to replace our democracy with a dictatorship, and our free-market economy with a command economy controlled by the government. The liberals couldn't say this aloud, because if they did the American people would have tossed them out of office on their ears. So the liberals worked covertly, feigning support for democracy and for the free market while working diligently to undermine both.

This is why our politics has been so partisan, so vicious, and so deadlocked. This is why words have lost their meaning in Washington, why we can never get to the bottom of anything, why we lurch from one manufactured scandal to another. It's all been part of a decades-long effort by the liberals to throw sand in our eyes -- to keep us from seeing clearly where they really want to take us. (And this explains why, when we question their judgment on some issue, they go berserk and accuse us of questioning their patriotism. They're afraid we're on the verge of catching on. If you want to have some fun, the next time you're chatting with a liberal and he goes nuts when you call him a socialist, say to him: "I'm so sorry you're offended. Please tell me, what is there about socialism you don't like?"
I still believe most liberals are just well-meaning dupes incapable of thinking through the consequences of their policies, but clearly the end result of liberalism is the loss of individual liberty, and the empowering of an elite political class to rule over them; in other words, a reversion to the norm of human history. Surely, it is at least possible that this has been the goal of the left-wing leadership the whole time.

Woohoo...the end result of liberalism is the loss of individual liberty? That's rich, coming from someone like you. Wake up and smell the friggin' coffee douchebag, you are a footnote.

Sure, liberalism is all about personal liberty. Which is why they make us change the toilets in our homes and the lightbulbs, are eager to take more of our hard earned money, and bring the 2nd Amendment down to where it'd be illegal to have a pea shooter.

Liberalism is a soft tyranny based on authoritarianism for "the good of the people". Liberalism is just one step away from out and out Marxism.
