20 Questions Liberals Can't Answer

Post by eddie on Sat Aug 27, 2016 8:07 pm

First topic message reminder :

This was sparked off by another debate in World Politics, so I decided to post this up as I found the questions interesting:


20 Questions Liberals Can't Answer

"It is not enough for the insecure left to deem a position wrong; if it’s merely wrong, it needs to be argued about, and it can’t survive that. It must instead be morally abhorrent, so that the zealot reacts to the toxin of questioning much like a jogger coming across a decomposing body on the side of the road — it must be internalized that the correct response to such a horror is to retch, and faint, and call the authorities post-haste.
This is how the leftist faith protects itself from the infection of doubt. (Meanwhile, of course, patting itself on the back for being so open-minded…)" -- Ace of Spades HQ

"If it were true that conservatives were racist, sexist, homophobic, fascist, stupid, inflexible, angry, and self-righteous, shouldn’t their arguments be easy to deconstruct? Someone who is making a point out of anger, ideology, inflexibility, or resentment would presumably construct a flimsy argument. So why can’t the argument itself be dismembered rather than the speaker’s personal style or hidden motives? Why the evasions?" -- Ann Coulter
Liberalism doesn't convince with logic. It can't, because the policies liberals advocate don't work. So instead, liberals have to use emotion-based ploys and attack the motives of people they disagree with while attempting to keep conservative arguments from being heard at all. Why? Because they have no good answers to questions like these.

1) A few days ago, we were hearing that the Boston Marathon bombers COULD BE conservative, which proved that the Right is evil. Now, when we know that the terrorists are Muslims, how can the same liberals be saying that it means nothing?

2) If you believe we have a "right" to things like health care, food, shelter and a good education, then doesn't that also mean you believe we also have a right to force other people to unwillingly provide those things at gunpoint?

3) How can you simultaneously want a big government that will make decisions that have an enormous impact on the lives of every American while also saying that the character and morals of our politicians don't matter?

4) What exactly is the "fair share" of someone's income that he’s earned that he should be able to keep?

5) Why is it that time and time again, revenue paid to the treasury has GONE UP after we've cut taxes?

6) Are you pro-choice or pro-abortion? If it's pro-choice, do you feel people should be able to choose to have an assault weapon, what kind of light bulb they use in their house or whether they'd like to put their Social Security funds into a private retirement account?

7) If corporations are so awful, greedy and bad for the country, then shouldn't we be celebrating when they decide to close their plants here and move overseas?

Cool How can liberal economists like Paul Krugman be right when they claim that our economy isn't doing well because we aren't spending enough money when we're already running massive, unsustainable deficits and spending is going up every year?

9) If Republicans don’t care about the poor, why do studies consistently show that they give more to charity than Democrats do?

10) Give us a ballpark estimate: If something doesn't change dramatically, how long do you think it will be until we have an economic crash in this country similar to the one we're seeing in Greece or Cyprus?

11) Since we "all agree" with the idea that our level of deficit spending is "unsustainable," what would be wrong with permanently freezing federal spending at the current level until we balance the budget by increasing revenue, cutting spending or some combination thereof?

12) If we change God's definition of marriage to make gay marriage legal, then what's the logical argument against polygamy or even adult siblings supposed to be?

13) In a world where people can easily change states and can, with a bit more difficulty, permanently move to other roughly comparable parts of the globe, do you really think it's feasible over the long haul to have a tax system where 86% of the income taxes are paid by the top 25% of the income earners?

14) If you win a lawsuit that's filed against you, why should you have to pay huge legal bills when you did nothing wrong while the person who filed the suit pays no penalty for wrongly accusing you?

15) How can you oppose putting murderers to death and be fine with killing innocent children via abortion?

16) A minimum wage raises salaries for some workers at the cost of putting other workers out of jobs entirely. What's the acceptable ratio for that? For every 10 people who get a higher salary, how many are you willing to see lose their jobs?

17) The earth has been warming and cooling for thousands of years with temperature drops and increases that are much larger than the ones we've seen over the last century. Since we can't adequately explain or model those changes, what makes us think we can say with any sort of confidence that global warming is being caused by man?

18) We live in a world where people have more choices than ever before in music, entertainment, careers, news sources and what to do with their time. Shouldn't government mirror that trend by moving towards federalism and states’ rights instead of centralizing more and more power in Washington, DC?

19) If people in the middle class aren't willing to pay enough in taxes to cover the government services that they use because they don't think it's worth the money, shouldn't we prune back government to a level people do feel comfortable paying for in taxes?

20) If firms can get by with paying women 72 cents on the dollar for the same quality of work as men, then why don't we see any firms with all female labor forces using those lower costs to dominate the marketplace?

Hardly, she's had to turn off because of storms.  I'm nobody's doll and you should know, and it seems very strange you are using the language of others.   Have you a purpose in mind or are you just bored?

no...Im showing you how YOUR and HER posts are seen by others....

funny isnt it ...you get all out of shape being described as "puppet" and hyena pack ....for defending your friend.....and yet when I post to stop unwarrented abuse being heaped on (say) tommy (who is NOT a "friend" as such and with whom I often disagree) purely on the philosophical point that HE IS ALLOWED his POV

suddenly I'm his puppet and his hyena follower etc etc etc etc ...

you (and especially HER) are very fond of sqeaking "its not fair" (or some more wordy equivalent) yet you are far from fair when it comes to dealing with others....

AND...as I have shown now many times YOU and her are the FIRST to issue abuse (followed closely by wolfie i may add)

Rolling Eyes  Guess you haven't been reading Ben's posts to Tommy (lol 2nd Mod I've said that to tonight).


And when did I say you were a puppet, I said in using that phrase you were using the words of others.   Don't kid a kidder Victor, it never works.

YOU have never accused me of being in a hyena pack either.....

as to what ben says...i have no control over that ...but the fact that you self condone your actions on the basis of what another does is telling

my god its like dealing with 10yos....."but sir...the big boys say that" Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes (hint...just because Ben does it dont make it right either)

What actions am I 'self condone'?   Calling Tommy an idiot when he goes on about there being no climate change problem?   Well hush my mouth, the sky will fall in and the Earth will change direction.   Tut tut.

Considering that the very foundation that this entire thread was established upon another 'BLOGGER' with the most archaic POV and proven {as my listed quotes showed} to be nothing more then a heinous wind bag --- the entire discussion about '20 Questions No Liberal Could Answer' was just to bizarre to be realistic! 
A. the blogger has his own low bar-false opinion about the definition of what a Liberal is
B. the entire questionnaire was dated 2013
C. the man is a fruit cake and has little to offer in the way of decent facts let alone worthy content for adult discussion
D. as this has turned out - WTH   If anyone wants to know what our OPINIONS are about specific social issues, why don't they just ask without trying to confine us into a BOX with a LIBERAL LABEL?  Suspect
By all means ..,since I'm a few posts way ahead of YOUR derailing (I've replied to the topic and with links and copied articles as well)  Rolling Eyes
I'll bear your walk on water opinion, in mind the next time I come under attack from another MOD - and their calling me a LIAR - SENILE - FUCKTARD HYPOCRITE - that shouldn't be posting here ... that you would just SUCK IT UP AND IGNORE THAT HENIOUS BEHAVIOUR cheers   Cause that's how you roll and everyone should emulate your every posting methods

4Ever the victim.....Maybe I don't get as many insults as you do because I don't dish as many out?? Rolling Eyes

Oh, absolutely ...now why didn't I think of that; and here I was thinking it was because you just rolled over and left the thread {as usual} and I stuck it out but then again you were in the same thread that got little Eddie all hysteria filled and I didn't start any of that shit fest!  But your recall/memory for such events has always been 'IFFY'!  Rolling Eyes

Weren't you 'MOANING' about getting back on topic ...I'm still waiting for your pearls of wisdom regarding 'ANYTHING'   besides your critique about MEEEEE - you do seem fixated!
