Morally superior liberals

Almost all of the pathologies that confront this nation today are the responsibility of liberals.

• Who perpetrated and perpetuated a welfare system that has destroyed the black family? Before the Great Society, blacks were married at a slightly higher rate than whites. Today, approximately 70 percent of black children are born out of wedlock.

• Who has all but eviscerated discipline from schools and families?

• Who routinely practices mercy to the guilty? Mercy to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.

• Who preaches moral relativism? Without absolutes of right and wrong, a civilization will not last.

The answer to all of these is today's liberals/progressives.

If liberals were to look honestly and objectively at the disasters they have fostered, it would destroy their entire narrative — that they are self-appointed, morally superior saviors rescuing the human race. This narrative is not one that is easily let go.

For me, I prefer freedom as opposed to a morally superior ideology that is methodically destroying it.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
