While driving along in our car last week, my wife and I struck up a conversation about politics and our country. If memory serves correctly, we were listening to Glenn Beck at the time, so that might be what got us stirred up about the subject. Whatever got us started did not cause us to come to any particular fact-based conclusions, just observations that are probably true, nonetheless.
I call to mind a time when former Senator Hillary Clinton protested loudly about the fact she was tired of people who disagreed with the Bush administration being characterized as somehow not patriotic. Disagree, yes, but in a civil manner and with respect!
I Am Sick And Tired – Hillary Clinton
When I was in the military, I was taught to show respect to my superiors. We may not always agree with them, but we must show respect. Have you ever noticed those on the left by the score are so disrespectful of people who do not share their opinions? Have you ever noticed how our current president goes on incessantly about the former administration causing all the problems we now face?
A conclusion my wife and I came to is simply this: the liberals really don’t love our country; they just love the freedoms they have been afforded by the blood and sacrifices of others. They love the freedom to take advantage of the weak and powerless. They love government handouts. They love power. Many love the freedom to live their lives apart from a godly moral code while mocking and degrading those who live their lives in order to honor and respect God.
Many liberals want the government to invade every area of our lives and offer us everything we need to sustain life. “From the cradle to the grave” is the motto of many on the left. I say let the government stay out of the affairs of Americans to a much greater extent.
What do you think? What is your opinion on the matter?
