Using the term ‘liberal’ or ‘liberalism’ to define today’s Democrats is not only inaccurate, it’s the exact opposite of what they really are. I looked up the definition of liberal and what I read only supports my belief that we should use a different term to describe Democrats. The definitions I found are:
noting or pertaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform.
of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism, especially the freedom of the individual and governmental guarantees of individual rights and liberties.
favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression.
of or relating to representational forms of government rather than aristocracies and monarchies.
free from prejudice or bigotry; tolerant.
open-minded or tolerant, especially free of or not bound by traditional or conventional ideas, values, etc.
not strict or rigorous; free; not literal.
a person of liberal principles or views, especially in politics or religion.”
After reading these definitions of liberal, I defy you to convince me that liberal Democrats are truly liberal. Think about!
Who is it that has been systematically taking away many of our freedoms and rights?
Who is it that has become completely intolerant to Christian and conservative views?
Who is it that is trying to pass laws to limit your freedom of speech?
Who is it that is trying to pass laws to prevent you from owning a firearm?
Who is it that has used government agencies and powers to steal personal property and dictate what you are allowed to do on your property?
Who is it that is forcing us to purchase healthcare that we cannot afford?
I could fill pages and pages with similar questions but I trust you grasp the absurdity of using the term liberal to describe many of today’s politicians, especially Democrats. You could correctly answer the questions above with names like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and most of the Democratic members of Congress, state and local politicians.
So what word or term would be more accurate to describe the not so liberal liberals?
How about ‘tyrant’? Look at the following definitions and tell me if they more accurately describe the Democrats I listed above:
a sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly.
any person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.
a tyrannical or compulsory influence.
an absolute ruler, especially one in ancient Greece or Sicily.”
If you don’t like the term ‘tyrant’ then there are a few others also accurately describe so-called liberals, such as: ‘oppressor’ ‘dictator’ ‘bully’ ‘autocrat’ ‘despot’ ‘tormenter’ and ‘persecutor’. All of them are accurate, but like tyrant, they are less flattering than ‘liberal.’
In my future writings I may start resorting to using ‘tyrant’ or tyrannical liberal’ when referring to those who strive so hard to strip our rights and freedoms away from us and enslave us under their socialistic form of government.
