Just posted this to Facebook for my liberal friends to see. Hopefully it will cause them to rethink their views a little. I encourage others to post it to Facebook as well.
Attention Obama voters. If you like Pepsi and I like Coke, that's matter of taste. That's something we can agree to disagree on. If you want big government and I don't, that's not something we can agree to disagree on. You voting for big government affects me and many other non-consenting people. It is an imposition on everyone who does not want big government. On the other hand, me wanting less government is not an imposition on you. It is to support leaving you and everyone else alone to be free of coercion. See the difference?
lotsa luck, your trying to reason with the unreasonable.
But that's their point.
They want to force you to do that which you otherwise wouldn't.
They believe in the forced perfectibility of man, because G-d and a fallen man are not part of their cosmology.
So force is their POINT.
See Stalin, Mao, and 100,000,000 murdered for Socialist ideology so far.
It leaves you and everyone else alone to be free......sounds better.......
When a liberal posts that we shouldn’t impose our beliefs on them, I respond that I see their beliefs imposed on me every time I see my pay stub deductions.
You don’t understand the upside down worldview of leftists, I see.
You wanting smaller government DOES affect their lives,
because without someone else paying for their choices,
they can’t really have the “freedom” to make those choices.
THIS is how they look at it.
Herr Hitler was also a Socialist, albeit a National Socialist, so add another 13,000,000 to the Socialism death count.
Easy for you to say you racist, sexist, homophobic bigot.
Coke is dog whistle for racism. Pepsi is code word for racism. Chris Matthews says so.
Aside from those minor details, you are spot on...
Except that if you voted for Romney you also are voting for Big Government; just a big and overbearing as Obama’s view, just that it’ll take a little longer to get there. I have never once heard him say “that’s not the government’s responsibility” on anything.
Starting tomorrow, we'll have the next four years to rip on President Romney for being a big RINO. But for today, let us just focus on defeating the Marxist usurper.
Yes, but at least the GOP base wants less government and will be there to pressure Romney. Obama will feel no such pressure from his base of government workers and welfare recipients.
I added the bit about coercion because most of these liberals don't even know what freedom means.
That's for sure. I got into a heated discussion with a liberal friend of mine last night. I listed TONS of facts he was not aware of...BUT...he would say in one breath "If you don't mind I will look into that instead of taking your word for it" and then on the other hand...he would say "I don't believe anything the media says...or anything I can google."
So...he's has a liberal viewpoint and wants the facts...but disbelieves ANY source you give him to back it up. It's a no win situation...
AND...he thinks the conservatives dominate the media. I said it was 90% liberal...gave him facts to back it up...and he said it was the opposite...that 90% were conservatives. I asked him for facts to support his view...but of course...he dones't believe facts so he said neither one of us can prove it either way...to which I replied..."I just did. I gave you 3 sources." To which he said "I'll have to source that." Which he won't...
I gave examples of how Obama out and out lied when he said F&F was an ongoing operation when he became president...which we know is a lie. He had never heard that...and since there is no source he will believe...because 90% of the media have a conservative bias...he dismissed it.
So...tell me...what am I to do with that other than pray for the guy or dismiss our friendship. I am close to doing both. I have a hard time being friends with someone that illogical.
Indeed. They won’t listen, they are stubborn and angry and immature.
But it still needs to be said. Do whatever you like, just leave me out of it, including my wallet . . . and my freedom.
