This was a survey of likely voters, I find it sad that only half of them see the US as the last best hope of mankind. Public school education is taking its toll -- 51% to 37% those under 30 disagree with that statement.
OK. For ‘liberals’ then, what IS?
Islam in Saudi Arabia...
The pollsters should have asked that...
...not if Odumbo can help it
The 2013 version of the USA is the last best hope.
If I was in charge, I’d have a one way ticket, move all your household items to anywhere program, for any lib. Conditions: give up citizenship, passport, and automatically on the no fly list. I’m completely sick and tired of this crap.
Tomorrow will be a good indicator.
Until then, we’re pretty much screwed.
These so-called "liberals" portray themselves as the "intellectual" elite, although they are totally bereft of any real knowledge or understanding of the great ideas which were the seedbed of Ameria's 200-year experiment in liberty.
Today's liberals, especially the so-called "progressives," with all of their domination of academia and Far Left politics, seem to fit into a category described in an essay by T.S. Eliot on Virgil:
"In our time, when men seem more than ever to confuse wisdom with knowledge and knowledge with information and to try to solve the problems of life in terms of engineering, there is coming into existence a new kind of provincialism which perhaps deserves a new name. It is a provincialism not of space but of time--one for which history is merely a chronicle of human devices which have served their turn and have been scrapped, one for which the world is the property solely of the living, a property in which the dead hold no share."(Bold added for emphasis)
Without intellectual anchoring in the enduring ideas which provided the philosophical foundation of America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution, their vain imaginations of superiority only expose their limited world view.
Yet, the America which rose from obscurity to greatness, from crude hoes and axes to putting a man on the moon, and from oppression by King George to a symbol of liberty for millions all over the world--that America provides shelter for them, even as they attempt to "change" her into something unimagined by the Founders.
If they are allowed to succeed in their own little provincial experiment, their posterity never will know the "blessings of Liberty" proclaimed by the Preamble to America's Constitution.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of voters nationwide believe the United States is the last best hope of mankind. Twenty-six percent (26%) are dope smoking fudge packing commies, and 24% are brain dead Oprah fans.
The other choices were Gaia, Trancendental Meditation, and the United Federation of Planets?
I think most educated liberals are familiar with the classical liberal principles of our founding. The problem is they disagree with them. The problem is deeper than simple ignorance, I think.
“Twenty-six percent (26%) are dope smoking fudge packing commies, and 24% are brain dead Oprah fans.”
I am afraid you are right and unfortunately it’s true, not really laughable.
Proving once again that Liberalism is a mental disease.
And this is the crux of the problem. When 49% of Americans are NOT sure we are the last best hope for the world, we are well and truly fekked. The communist propaganda brainwashing has met it’s goal.
This explains better than anything I've read the "progressive" mantras about "moving this country forward." They seem to be committed to a headlong rush toward . . . . some unseen, unknow tomorrow. It doesn't matter what lies there as long as they get there.
In some ways it's like the anxiety one may feel in a place where they don't feel comfortable. That must be what liberals experience all the time. Sadly, I don't think there's a cure for them.
The intellectual elitists eschew liberty for what they perceive as a utopian order. In practice, they only provide misguided assistance to the fascists who may, if they’re fortunate, allow them to choose between a bullet and cyanide.
