I do not agree because not ALL Liberals feel that way.November 19 2010 at 2:12 PM
Response to opportunity vs guarantees
Just as ALL Republicans do not subscribe to every party platform issue. The world is not black and white as some would like it to be. We see examples on a regular basis that reflect flaws in all of us. Liberals that speak of equality yet line their pockets with ill gotten gain. Republicans that soap box about issues and then find themselves guilty of what they condemn. The hypocrisy is sad to see, but comes as a result of focusing on the differences and not the similarities. Teams succeed when they work together. The goal is to win the game. The strategy is how to do that as a team. If one player thinks they are above the rest then failure is the most likely outcome. A civilized society is such when they take care of the weakest in that society. You will always have those that want and yet do nothing for it, just as you will have those that take and never give. Life is a balancing act. Too much one way or the other and life falters. That is a principle that applies to everything we come in contact with. Who cares about the mosquito? It is a pest to us and we try to eradicate them as much as possible. If we go too far and eradicate them all then those species that depend on them for food will be eradicated and so on. It starts with something so simple and seemingly insignificant but it can have a huge effect on more complex and very significant things like the survival of the human race. We are all interconnected, everything on this planet. Just because it does not directly impact you is no reason to ignore it or fight it. Some liberals are ridiculed for wanting to protect the environment (environmental wackos) yet without them we would continue to see sewage dumped indiscriminately into our water supply. Oh, but we have so much water, a little pollution will not be a problem. No the problem is that some will believe that and continue to pollute and if not regulated to stop it will grow and the problem becomes worse, all in the pursuit of a profit. Which comes back to how do we survive together and allow the human spirit to grow and express themselves without some dictating who gets that chance and who doesn't and how they get to do it. It's called balance and we seem unable to come to the realization.
