The liberal, socialist minset has caused misery around world

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

"Open up your heart and mind: it's not good to close either one".

Right on Bernadette Loesch, I agree with you. Unfortunately, then the socialist virus flows from her pen onto the pages of The Sun. "Lest we forget, the 1 percent of the uber wealthy want to keep all that they have without caring about or feeling any brotherly concern or responsibility for others who are less fortunate than them." Her broad brush then paints a picture of patronizing contempt for letter writers who disagree with her view of how the world works. "The examples we hear from people with narrowed minds try to make us believe that only the ones who have made it are entitled to what they earn (and all of it)".

The questions abound. "One per cent of the uber wealthy" includes exactly what minuscule percentage of the population? How does she know that all those folks have no "brotherly concern" for others and hence give nothing to charity of their personal wealth? And heaven forbid that people who bust their tails every day should feel entitled to what they earn. Who are these narrow-minded people that she speaks of and how does she know what they do or do not contribute to their fellow man? I wonder if she knows that Republicans contribute more of their personal wealth to charity than do Democrats and by a wide margin.

I wonder why Bernadette offers no proof whatsoever and offers no names to back up her allegations of these supposed narrow minded letter writers. No, no, she just blasts away with accusations of folks stereotyping and condemning all the poor and needy as not deserving of our help. I haven't read of anyone saying that. How about one example. Who anointed you the arbiter of who is and isn't a responsible person?

Bernadette, I am not angry with you. I used to believe as you do until I opened up my mind and rid myself of the socialist virus that had afflicted me for so long. I am angry with liberal teachers and professors who filled me with this socialist, redistributionist nonsense. I am angry with the media who perpetuate lies about capitalism and conservatism. I am angry with most Republicans who continually cave in to the Democrats. And I am angry with myself for taking so long to wake up.

Now that I am awake and have an open mind, I will in my letters, continue to correct the misrepresentations made about conservatives by modern day liberals. The liberal, socialist mindset has caused untold misery around the world as history has borne out. Unfortunately, like a tenacious virus, it keeps rearing it's ugly head by those who remain convinced that socialism is the best model for taking care of citizens despite not one single, solitary example of a success in the history of mankind.

Yes, I am angry, but not at you Bernadette. I actually feel sad for you since you apparently still feel as I once did. "I am a liberal, I am a Democrat and therefore I am in the party that has cornered the market on the care and compassion for others". That, is pure rubbish and I will continue to call you and others out on all the lies, hypocritical name calling, generalizations and arrogance that flows from the progressive, modern day liberal mind.
