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.

If its Utopia you want, you will never attain it. Perfection is not to be found in the things of this world and mortal life has its share of flaws and shortcomings. The conservative accepts the world is not perfect and tries to better it through good works. The liberal sees the world as in need of perfection and looks to government to achieve it. There's a difference between the practicable and the nearly impossible. It seems to me it is the latter where liberals fall far short in their bid to see the world elevated to a higher state of being.

...liberals place faith in economic redistribution, ...
As long as their wealth is excluded. They like compassion by proxy using other peoples money.
