The dyslexia of liberalism

| Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

I believe liberalism is like a form of dyslexia, where thought processes are backward and upside down and actions are motivated by feelings, with little regard for facts, reality and common sense.

Consider the following examples:

• Liberals think guns, not people, kill people and that viewing brutal violence and killing in liberal-produced movies and video games has absolutely no affect on people's thoughts and actions.

• So-called “Catholic” liberals place liberalism above their salvation. They betray their faith by voting for an ultraliberal president and politicians who are attacking Catholic religious beliefs and freedoms. Why do they consider themselves Catholic? It's irrational.

• This country's greatness generally is attributed to its belief and trust in God, its Judeo-Christian values and its Constitution. The liberals want to end that.

• If you work hard and become successful, liberals believe you should be thought of as the “evil rich.” Then much of your earnings should be confiscated and given to able-bodied people who are not required to work or subject to drug testing. They can spend other people's hard-earned money on anything they wish.

• Liberals think that sodomy is A-OK, as is same-sex marriage.

This is not Democrats vs. Republicans. This is rational thinking and values vs. twisted, convoluted, godless and destructive thinking.

For the sake of our children and grandchildren, it's time to quit being intimidated by those who call us judgmental, uncaring, intolerant and racist and stand up against this cancer spreading throughout our country.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
