They have lots to be happy about - celebrating their "rights" by having abortions, being envious of hard working "rich" people, killing off handicapped people, protest after protest, etc. It just depends on where your values are...

Why liberalism is doomed to fail. The majority of people want to be happy.

Democracy works!

D'Souza said it best in one of his books...liberals place faith in equality of outcomes, while conservatives place faith in equality of rights; liberals place faith in economic redistribution, while conservatives place faith in economic freedom. With such idealistic, impractical hopes, it is clear why liberals would never be happy.

Liberals, taking their bearings, whether they know it or not, from President Franklin Roosevelt's 1936 State of the Union address, think the attainment of happiness itself, understood in terms of security and material well-being, is an entitlement that government has created and can deliver.

Liberalism in a nut shell.

Liberals believe that the path to happiness should be built by others; conservatives recognize that it can't be.

Conservatives are happy with themselves, while liberals are continually peeking into the next man's bank account and envying him his acquisitions.

I enjoy life and am happy with what little I have. Liberals see the world as a perpetually bleak place. I would not like to imagine seeing life the way they do.

Liberals seek the extermination of western civilization and humanity in general. A true liberal today wants death, but they wish to witness everyone else die first.

IMHO, the Dems define their political opportunities in the misery of their fellow American......

Hard to be happy, when that teenage angry malcontent still resides within you, always rebelling against order and structure, forever wanting to "tear it all down".

On Jan. 3, 1936, FDR announced that in 34 months his administration had established a ``new relationship between government and people.''

Begin with a paradox: Conservatives are happier than liberals because they are more pessimistic.......Conservatives' pessimism is conducive to their happiness in three ways.

Excsue me, conservatives are pessimistic????? Get real. Who thinks the world is doom because of global warming. Who thinks our robust economy is worst than the great depression. Who thinks everything America does is evil.

Two words: Ronald Reagan.

He told us that our country could once again be a force for good in the world. Then he proceeded to do it. Liberals like Carter and Clinton start with the premise that, if anyone dislikes us, it must be something we did wrong. Carter gave away the Panama canal and Clinton aplogized to every continent except Antarctica (no chicks there). Carter sat there in his sweater and scolded us for wanting to be great. We should bicycle to work, his energy secretary said. My work was 45 minutes away by car at the time. Nice try, moron.

For the last twenty-five years the Reagan view has prevailed. We won the Cold War, mankinds greatest struggle for freedom vs. tyranny. Even when Clinton infected the White House the Congress turned more and more Republican as the nation rejected his views. The Supreme Court will be returning to an interpretive rather than legislative role. The liberal Northeast is dying through attrition as people vote with their feet. College students are decidedly more conservative than their professors. Etc., etc. Why shouldn't we feel better?

I no longer think very favorably about Geo. Will. I heard this story last night on charlie Rose by the author of a new bio on Reagan. Reagan is hosting a state dinner for Gorby. He stands up toasts the Russian and says, "He and I will change the world." Geo. Will said the next day, REagn will sell out our country and yesteday was worse than Dec 7 1941." Geo Will continues to get the facts wrong. He continues to get the future wrong. What he is good about is writing the history of baseball. No vision all talk.

Its hard to be happy when you really think George Bush is going to throw you in a concentration camp any day now.
