What is the ultimate goal of Liberals/Progressives? What is the End Game?


Conservatives want a country where everyone works hard and has a chance to make a life for themselves without massive government interference. They want basic morality and the rule of law. They want the nation to be defended and they want to not be taxed aggressively. That's about it.

Liberals whine incessantly about almost everything. Taxes are never high enough, spending is never high enough, laws are never lax enough, borders are never open enough. They are always trying to change everything and make it more egalitarian.

Is there ever a point where Liberals will be happy and stop hating everyone who has a different opinion from them? They seem like the most miserable people on the planet who are only happy when they come together to win a victory over anyone who would dare disagree with them.

I don't get them at all. They don't build anything. They just deconstruct everything they can get their hands on until the every possible institution is broken down.

What is their End Game?

You do realize that's impossible, don't you? Those two desires are mutually exclusive.

I don't think they have to be. I think we were close when this whole thing started but have drifted away from it over the last 236 years. We need a major reset and I think the founding fathers would agree.

Your desires will bump into someone else's desires right away, which will be defined as trampling on their right to pursue happiness.

Freedom is not getting what you want all the time. Freedom means that you are free to do your duty to make a life for yourself by working hard and being a good citizen. The American concept of freedom today is totally different from at the founding. It no longer works, really, at least in the way the other poster described.

You can't just do what you want without it affecting others in some way. Life does not work that way.

I think it varies widley,

some want to be sure they are not sent back to agricultural pursuits

some want to marry the animate object of their desires

some want to get rid of their student loans

some want power, the power to shape the world in their vision

some want to end wars and close gitmo

some just think that unicorn is out there

Okay. But, how will you fund your entitlement programs?

Hmmm?

Sell tickets to the Christian executions.

Some of the remarks I've seen from people on here today - I'm certain we can pay off some debt. Also, once Chris Matthews and the celebs start dishing out $$ for ring-side execution seats entitlements will double.

Dont have to fund them forever - just a long enough for the planet to be rid of mankind.

I'm not sure of the path, but you'll know we're there when chess is outlawed as racist, and replaced by a game where the pieces are all of equal value and all colors, and are free to do as they please.
