“Secrecy, once adopted, becomes an addiction.” - Edward Teller
Liberalism is a disease. It’s not just an opinion, or a political stance…..it’s a disease. The proof of such a statement lies in their steadfast refusal to even entertain the idea of its possibility. In fact, the proof of such a statement comes in the absolutely horrendous response granted to Dr. Lyle Rossiter who wrote “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” Dr. Lassiter had absolutely zero ties to any known right-wing affiliations when he released his book. He had never taken part in any activism or any other activities that would warrant the outright hateful disrespect he was given from those on the left who feel their own egotistical, self-appointed credentials negate those of Dr. Rossiter. The truth is that Dr. Rossiter has been a respected forensic psychologist for over thirty five years. He has treated over 1,500 patients, lent his expertise to over 2,700 civil and criminal cases, and is well respected among peers all over the planet. His point is only made stronger by the vile response he has received from the targets of his research.
”A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation, and moral integrity ---- as liberals do. A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population ---- as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nations citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state ---- as liberals do.” - excerpt from “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.”
Take a second and think about how powerful that summary of liberalism actually is. Just think of how many examples there are to illustrate each and every point in that paragraph. How many times, just in the last three and a half years, have we been given an example of our free choice being ignored or berated? My mind is literally buzzing just thinking of all the examples. I believe my keyboard would melt and my fingers would bleed if I tried to keep up with them as they flood my brain. How many times has our cooperation been anything but voluntary? How many times have we been asked to stand by and watch as our moral integrity is destroyed? How many times have we been told that our individual talents are not as important as a “level playing field?” How many times have we heard that the fruits of drive and work ethic should be distributed among those who did nothing to earn them? How many examples have we seen of the imposition of economic and social equality where none has been earned? Over-regulation and over-taxation are staples of the liberal lifestyle and they too have been rampant in the last three and a half years.
Diseases spread most quickly among people too weak to defend themselves. Liberalism truly is a disease and therefore preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority just as obesity preys on those unwilling to consume a proper diet. Even if it means they have to rewrite a little bit of history to legitimize their claim, liberals are all about portraying themselves as the ideology of the minority. They pride themselves on being the voice of those too weak to speak for themselves. They speak loudly in chat rooms, comment boards, and the world they’ve created where their logic reins supreme. The problem is that the weak are all too happy to accept that representative voice. The poor are infected because they want to feel that they have the same voice as the “fat cats.” Minorities are infected because they desperately want to have what they are told is being kept from them. Becoming a victim is much easier than fighting. Victims have rights that require no fight. The disease of liberalism thrives wherever there are victims. In order for the disease to spread, a perception of victimization must be created. Liberals have created a system where the very people trying to kill us are often portrayed as the victims. Illegal immigrants are victims. Murderers are victims. Carelessness, lack of responsibility, horrendous behavior, complete lack of morality…..they’re all the fault of someone else. They are all cause for pity and deserving of charity. Jobs should be given because it would somehow cure the addiction. Money should be bestowed because it is desired. Responsibility is simply the idea of an oppressive authority. Those infected with the disease truly lack the ability to see that working for a paycheck is better than waiting to win the lottery. Liberalism feeds the idea that government should provide for it’s citizens because the citizens are incapable of providing for themselves. The disease, and their unwillingness to treat the disease, leads them to turnover their ownership in their own lives.

I truly believe that liberalism is a disease in the same regard that alcoholism is a disease. Alcoholism is a powerful and destructive disease to say the least. Liberalism is no different. Once infected, or maybe “addicted” would be a better description; it’s grip is consuming. On an almost comical basis, the left side of our political system presents us with symptoms of addiction. Symptoms of addiction include, according to Elizabeth Hartney, PhD, tolerance and withdrawal. Tolerance is defined as the need to engage in the addictive behavior or activity more and more to get the desired effect. Often that tolerance leads to the complete abandonment of logic. I think we’ve all seen examples of an addiction defeating reason within a loved one, friend, favorite celebrity, favorite athlete, or favorite two-time mayor of Washington DC. Liberalism allows the acceptance of things once considered shocking. Facts are distorted to support questionable lifestyles while morality is somehow seen as a crutch for the weak. This is no different than a meth addict rejecting offerings of help in order to pursue a high. Addiction requires a ton of bargaining. Logic is created where none has a right to exist and it’s all done in the interest of perpetuating the desired effect. Actions are defended despite overwhelming evidence to support the opposing argument. Sadly, in the case of almost any addiction there are those who profit from the addiction in one way or another. The ones who profit the most are often just as addicted as those who would risk everything for just one more fix. There aren’t many bar owners who don’t at least drink occasionally. According to every rap song ever made, there aren’t many drug dealers who don’t occasionally partake of their product. Those who profit the most from liberalism would be those in charge of directing its progress. Those who create the victim profit in the form of votes, publicity, ratings, subscription increases, or large retention fees. By creating pockets of weakness throughout our society, liberals have managed to create a loyally addicted base of support.
Liberalism propels progress in the minds of those addicted. The problem is that the progress they seek is so often in the wrong direction. This supports the symptom of withdrawal. Liberals literally retreat into their fantasy world in order to support their theories. They have created a world where abortion and homosexuality are more important than common sense. They have retreated to a world where competition is seen as greed; where success is seen as evil; where morality is seen as weakness and Christianity is seen as dependency. Their beliefs trump what should be logic and common sense. The so-called Green Energy Loans made by Secretary Chu’s Energy Department would be perfect examples of this symptom. The amount of money given to such a specific and openly opposed ideology is inexcusable at best. The gamble they took was not with their own money and any hope of ever seeing a positive return on that “investment” hinges upon public demand for a product no one seems to want in it’s government designed form. Another example would be the contraception issue. The idea of expanding the reach of liberalism is so important that they are willing to overtly ignore the traditions and teachings of the Church. They twist the very Word of God in order to support their side of the argument but like the arguments of any addict, they simply won’t withstand the scrutiny of logic.
Diseases, especially addictions, require not only a group but readily available product. While the media has made sure that the products of liberalism are readily available to those addicted, the insulation provided by a group of addicts is weak. It's walls will crumble when tested. Like a crackhouse…..literally. No attention whatsoever is paid to the upkeep of a crackhouse. There is no money for landscaping or efforts to maintain curb appeal of a crackhouse. The appeal of a crackhouse is the crack it holds within its gutted, disgusting shell. Once that crack is gone, the house collapses under the prolonged exposure to neglect and dilapidation. In the case of a liberal, “crack” is any story or idea that creates a victim. Look at how quickly this “War on Women” nonsense spread. They roll out the innocent activist with unjustified support and an even more unjustified stage before our Congress and launch this nonsense about $3,000 birth control. BAM!!! A victim is created and the addiction is fed. The problem is that imaginary victims take away from real ones. Franklin Delano Roosevelt said in his 1935 State of the Union Address that “the lessons of history … show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.” Pretty damning testimony from what many consider to be a liberal icon. His words, despite spewing from the addicted mouth of a liberal, ring even more true today. The laws and programs meant to provide temporary assistance to those in true need have been twisted, expanded, and redefined to accommodate numbers and afflictions never intended under the logic of the original programs. No matter how strong the addiction, the initial choice was made to engage in the addictive activity.
This disease has an antidote for those willing to address the problem. For those willing to look beyond For many, that immunization will only come when their ideals are publicly and unequivocally defeated. November 7, 2012. Eradication Day.
As always, thanks for playing.
