Liberal mentality vs Conservative mentality

6 Dec

So as the holiday season is upon us and millions of Americans are out of work, the debate about over extending tax cuts for the richest people in the country and slashing aid to the poorest rages on. Yes, the “reduce the deficit” conservatives are adamant that we must add trillions of dollars onto the deficit so the richest people can become even richer while at the same time stop the aid that helps put food on the table of millions of Americans. Yep, winter is coming and if you’re out of work with a family to feed, soon you’ll be forced to choose between the heating bill and putting food on the table. The “reduce the deficit” conservatives are adamant that the best way to shrink the deficit is to cut social services, especially those that help poor people.

I’ve talked about this before, but all those conservatives refuse to even bring up the fact that we spend over a trillion dollars on war. Defense spending is the largest part of our budget, yet it is the holy cow. It is obvious that conservatives feel every social program aimed at bettering people’s lives should be cut before anyone dare thinking about cutting defense.

I’m furious about this. Nobody ever brings up cutting defense. I wonder how much we could improve our country and the lives of the people living in it if we invested that money into us instead of war. But no, we can’t touch that trillion dollars because the thought of killing dark skinned foreigners with expensive gadgets gives conservatives such a massive erection.

I think this really speaks to the difference between liberal and conservative priorities. Liberals want their tax dollars to save lives, conservatives want them to take lives. Liberals want to increase education funding, education is the #1 thing conservatives love to cut (gee, I wonder why), liberals want to fight the root causes of crime, conservatives prefer just to lock more people up (and then privatize prisons so they can make a fortune doing so) , liberals want to let women choose when they have children, conservatives want to force them to have unwanted children just so they can grow up to commit crimes and get the death penalty later. I swear, it just makes me want to smash my head through the drywall.

    Well as anyone with a drinking problem knows, this isn’t
    going to work, because once you get started you cannot
    guarantee the outcome. As you can see art can help you heal your
    heart after a broken relationship. An exec, high in ranks of
    a financial organization, was dealing with a CEO who was increasingly
    angry and demanding.

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every
    time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that
    service? Thank you!

    “Liberal mentality vs Conservative mentality | The
    Godless Paladin” was in fact a very good blog.
    In case it possessed more photographs this could
    be quite possibly far better. Thanks -Luciana
