Americans are rightly concerned about the potential spread of Ebola both here and abroad, but there is an even worse disease affecting nearly half the country. It’s the disease of liberalism, and it threatens to do far more damage to our country than any silly virus. It has already infected every corner of our society, and it has proven to be surprisingly communicable.
It manifests itself in a number of surprising and destructive ways. If you suspect you or someone you know has been infected, look for the following symptoms:
– A tendency to look at the Bill of Rights as a collection of outdated suggestions
– An unnatural fear of guns and a conviction that we can reduce crime by taking them off the market
– A casual approach to human morality, guided primarily by whatever feels right at the time
– A deep respect for the life of murderers and virtually none for that of unborn babies
– A certainty that white men are the main problem with America
– An unshakeable feeling that the only difference between a winner and a loser are the circumstances of their birth
These aren’t the only symptoms of the dreaded disease called liberalism, but they are some of the most common. If you notice any of them popping up for unexplained reasons, you may want to seek help before the disease has a chance to incubate. You won’t find a cure for liberalism on your state’s Obamacare exchange, though. To get your mind right, you may have to do one or more of the following:
– Set a goal and accomplish it – feel the power of individualism for yourself
– Read a book on the Founding Fathers and discover the truth behind some of history’s greatest men
– Ask your local police if you can do a ride-along and see if you have the same thoughts on crime and victimization when the day is done
– Watch a video showing the real truth of what an abortion consists of
– Do some research into how much good America has done around the world and ask yourself if your liberal friends/professors/websites are giving you the whole story
– Look at some of humanity’s attempts at creating an equitable utopia and mourn the millions who suffered and died
No other country in the history of the world has accomplished as much in as little time as our young United States of America. That’s not blind patriotism; that’s a fact. Was it just humanity’s time? Maybe. Or maybe there’s something special about our form of democracy. Something unique about our system of free market capitalism. Maybe the fervent independence that guided the Founding Fathers is responsible for: trains, cars, universal electricity, planes, space shuttles, the internet, and a better standard of living than our ancestors could have ever imagined.
Conservatism is the antidote for this disease, and it is the principle through which America has become what it is today. What it becomes tomorrow, though…that’s still up in the air. Don’t let the infection spread.
