Opinion: Liberals Stances are based on Twisted View of Opposing Side
A very telling admission of Left wing thought came from MSNBC recently.
Ari Melber placed blame for the failure of Detroit not on a long line of liberal ideology, but squarely in the lap of libertarianism by claiming the city was the most libertarians in the country.
This comes from a misunderstanding of opposing viewpoints that plague most liberals I’ve spoken to.
They believe that if the government does not impose something on the population that it will not happen.
In turn, Melber looks at the crumbling infrastructure, the disappearing services and bankrupt city and sees not reality, which is the final end of the spending spree that occurs in liberal cities, but instead sees a shrinking and absent government (when the opposite is true).
Libertarians believe that if something not an essential role of government I worth doing, private interests will see it done.
For example: a toll road. Free roads exists, but if the road is well enough built and provides a path people want, they will pay for its use, even though there are free alternative paths.
Being Libertarian I look at Detroit and see ruin caused by a government out of control, a liberal looks and sees too much freedom run amok.
It all is based from the very basest of conceptual differences, and its why Democrat leaders can commit horrible injustices and spend beyond any countries means and liberals will still vote for them every time.
