Way Up North: Things That Make Liberals Angry

Way Up North: Things That Make Liberals Angry.  Go read, and add some things if you can think of them.  I had a recent "debate" with a "liberal" over taxes.  He seemed to think if was a good idea for the govenment to nudge us with the tax code.  I thought a flat tax with no deductions for any reason was the ultimate in fairness.  Doesn't matter how you earned it, you pay a flat rate.  If you make say, $10, you pay $1.  If you make $1 Billion, you pay $100 million.  Of course, our "liberal" friend was offended, because a flat tax is too "regressive."  Then he shut down any further debate by saying "Well, you just have no compassion, and I guess I have too much!"

Whew.  Now there's a leap.  He has compassion for other people so long as it is with other peoples money. When the Lord gave the parable of the Good Samaritan, the Samaritan used his own money and resources to help the man beset by highway men.  He didn't go around and take other peoples money, at the point of a spear, to perform his good deeds.  That is the difference between true compassion, and the phoney stuff "liberals" spout.


  1. I've never understood the way liberals think it's "compassionate" when the government takes other people's money, regardless of the intended purpose.

  2. Rev. Paul,

    I don't see it either, but apparently it lets them feel good about themselves, on the cheap. I have noticed this before with others.

    God bless and keep you,
