You've obviously never heard the phrase "What's good for the goose is good for the gander." Or as Saul Alinsky says, "Make your enemy live by their own set of rules." Ironically, a socialist liberal, because the biggest rulemakers are currently liberals.
Most liberals want a carbon tax high enough that they drive most car owners broke, forcing them to sell their cars. But they want to drive a Lambourghini or whatever and be somehow exempt from these taxes.
Or they want free healthcare for themselves and immigrants, but the bill of course goes of course to the "rich" (middle class, because the Republicans know that the very rich know tax loopholes). My uncle was talking about how in Detroit, someone who wanted to could own a nicer house then him, rent free, tax free, while he worked full-time and paid about 1/3 of his salary to taxes.
Or they want their kids to be left alone, but they want republican parents to literally have child services take them away or send them to jail for child abuse (just because they regularly get sent to jail doesn't mean they are guilty, it could mean the law is fucked, and the definition of abuse is "teaching them traditional values"). They want students to be able to have their speech protected but build tiny zones where opposing views can be spoken.
Yeah... maybe some double-standard here.
Liberals are not the party of the common people. They are the party of snobs and hypocrites. People who think that standards should apply only to the little people. Watch Dancing With The Stars, and you'll notice that there are two distinct classes of people. Those who have to wear masks (the peons in the audience), and those who are "stars" or "judges". The mentality of this is staggering, because it turns a blind eye to injustice that follows in their wake.
(Here is an enlightened liberal breathing different air from the rest of us, and dragging his slave on a leash. Note the people standing to either side of his group. There people are not allowed to cross their path under penalty of death)
I at one point supported the Democratic party. I was pro-LGBT and pro-environment. Then I realized they cared about neither. Hillary said to the effect that those ppl in the Pulse nightclub should not have been armed. Read this carefully, she was okay with MORE of them being killed, in the name of gun control. And I realized that the conservatives oppose urbanization, while liberals support ever increasing urban sprawl (cutting down the environment) while claim that open immigration is an environmental issue. You're damned right it is! In order to house and clothe illegal immigrants, we need to bulldoze more trees to build more houses, to harvest more resources. We need to spend more money, which requires more paper and cloth and ink, which in turn keeps them here, even though they don't necessarily work, meaning we also need materials for free healthcare (which costs the taxpayer more) and more free food stamps/etc. The bottom line of all of this is slavery. Except for our darling minorities who collect (the biggest collectors however are the party leaders, who get their "fair share" for supposedly helping the downtrodden by making them dependent), whoever is old news now has to work harder to pay for all of the free stuff only to get high taxes raid all their earnings.
Btw, sex trafficking exists because of illegal immigration. These people are all too frequently folks without any options, who cannot speak the language and have to cooperate because deportation is held over their heads.
