Why I could never be a Democrat
There are many reasons why I would never be a Democrat besides the obvious like the Democratic Party takes strong stances concerning abortion, gay rights, and other social causes counter to those of the Mormon Church.
I think liberal policies are self-destructive to the country and the people who are supposed to be helped by such policies.
Liberals exploit and promote divisiveness through their incessant need for race-bating, man-hating, and class-warfare. The issue of illegal immigration is a prime case elucidating the differences between conservative and liberal positions, statements, policies, arguments and behaviors. Conservatives focus on immigrates being illegal in the first place, or the severe economic strain on local or national social services, or the overall negative economic impact, i.e., real arguments. Whereas liberals prime method of discussion is based on name calling, i.e., conservatives are racists and hate Hispanics.
I’ve learned through many discussions and observations that leftists live for and love to bring others down, i.e., consumed by hatred they attack any person, policy, culture, or country they seek to destroy. Which is why I’ve coined Dems as “The Down Party.”
To be short, Dems disguise their hatred as self-righteous outrage, their failure as oppression, and their viciousness as benign. They are the party of obstructionists, underminers, whiners, and victocrats.
A book I look forward to reading is, “How The Left Was Won An In-Depth Analysis of the Tools and Methodologies Used by Liberals to Undermine Society and Disrupt the Social Order.”
Combining a series of unique insights with an entirely new set of analytical techniques, How the Left Was Won systematically dismantles each and every element of modern-day liberalism ranging from the justifications behind any and all of its flawed social and political policies to the most basic assumptions regarding the ideology itself.
In order to achieve this goal, the author first introduces a new framework which segments and isolates all liberal behaviors and beliefs into the most objective and discrete elements possible. He then goes on to provide numerous examples of how liberals relentlessly employ this simple set of tools and methodologies over and over again and then discusses the resulting effects they have on our society. Some of these strategies include:
- Promote and Exploit Divisiveness: Learn why liberals should thank God every day for differences between people and how without them, liberalism would be dead in the water.
- Bad Competition: Learn why practically all liberal policies create success only through the impairment of others and exactly where this dynamic must necessarily lead.
- Relevancy and Proportion: See why the vast majority of what liberals say has absolutely no meaning whatsoever and learn a simple way to prove it every time.
- Groupdividual: Find out how liberalism has distorted the differences between groups and individuals and why this continued distortion is the basis for all flawed social policies within the United States.
- Implicit Assumptions: Explore the assumptions liberals use to shape public policy and see why the arguments supporting them are ultimately nothing more than a house of cards.
- The Perpetual Motion Machine: Learn how the vast majority of liberal programs are based on the scientific impossibility of getting something for nothing.
- A Swarm of Ants: Find out the real reason liberalism continues to permeate more and more elements of our society and why there just may be no way of stopping it. Source: Amazon
FP: Why do you think the leftist faith is ultimately self-destructive?
Mgrdechian: I think the answer can be summed up in two words — Bad Competition, a concept I discuss in considerable detail in the second chapter of the book.
In that discussion, I offer the following proposition: There are in fact, two and only two types of competition — good and bad. Good Competition is ultimately productive to the competing elements, while Bad Competition is ultimately destructive.
After describing what I mean by this and giving a few examples, I then provide some definitions. As such, I define Good Competition as: Any competitive effort where a person or organization attempts to achieve success based solely on the strength of their abilities, products or services. Similarly, I define Bad Competition as: Any competitive effort where a person or organization attempts to achieve success through any means other than the strength of their abilities, products or services. Rather than working to improve these elements, those engaged in Bad Competition will typically seek to achieve success primarily through the impairment of others.
Now look at things like affirmative action, quotas, empowerment, increasing taxes, thought-crimes or any sort of preferential treatment or special protections for women, minorities, homosexuals or others. How do these supposedly begin liberal programs help people? Simple — by hurting others. There is no improvement on an absolute level, there is only improvement on relative level by taking from others, lowering standards, denying opportunities to more qualified people or rewarding people for achievements they never managed to achieve. Clearly this sort of thing can never help a society as a whole; it can only hurt it. Worse yet, over time, this dynamic of penalizing success and rewarding failure can only lead to one thing — the complete collapse of a society.
This simple rule explains exactly why Hillary Clinton cannot ever be allowed to be President — absolutely everything about her is based solely on the relentless exploitation of Bad Competition. And Bad Competition will — without a doubt — be the death of this country. [Read more]
