Why is being a liberal considered to be so bad?

I don't understand why people hate liberals. Liberals are the nicest, most caring people in America.

For example why do people hate gays and gay marriage. From my experience with gay people in the workplace and in public they are the nicest people you will ever meet. They don't judge anybody for who they are and they treat everybody with respect.

Hollywood liberals are another. Sure they are rich but they don't mind paying more in taxes to help the less fortunate and they are the most giving people in this country to charities. You don't see Big Oil companies are Wall street CEO donating millions to charity.

And what is wrong with people just being themselves and expressing who they are. The First Amendment says Freedom of Religion. Someone needs to relay that message to all the Ultra Conservative Christians who hate anybody that is not a christian. BTW Jesus is a liberal.

LIVE AND LET LIVE!!! As long as somebody's lifestyle is not hurting any body else WHAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!

Finally why do people hate Barack Obama. I voted for him in 2008 and will again in 2012 and he is the most caring, generous person there is who is trying to help the less fortunate (the 99% of Americans) in the worst economy since the Great Depression that he inherited from George (DUBYA) Bush.

In the end I believe liberal values are better than conservative values. Is there anyone that feels like this. I am from Texas so I don't see that many liberals.

    Liberals represent everything that is wrong with society.

    They are generally stupid, naive, self-centered, ignorant, evil and destroying the US.

    they are not open minded. merely the choice. i used to be a liberal. My ideology became set in my suggestions. i did no longer decide for to pay attention opposing viewpoints, particularly whilst they made logical experience, with the aid of fact it became offensive to what i theory. Limbaugh on the radio angered me greater effective than something. It wasn't until I have been given older and began to pay taxes, traveled the country and observed first hand how agencies actual paintings, that my suggestions have been given cleared out of all that crap my mothers and fathers and the faculties had taught me. i will use this very own occasion: the different day i became using with my sixty two 12 months previous mom interior the vehicle. She became element of the 60's era. She used to sing me Beatles songs as lullabies to place me to sleep whilst i became a infant. Very liberal. in any case, the different day interior the vehicle, the verbal replace became political. The verbal replace ended together with her cranking up the quantity of the radio and saying "i do no longer decide for to take heed to any extent further of this." it extremely isn't any longer open minded. My argument to her assertion became logical and suggested. That ended the verbal replace suddenly. i did no longer sway her or exchange her suggestions. Her political ideals are ingrained into her like a faith.

    Liberals, democrats -- both want the same for America.

    Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way (without using a teleprompter!): "Every nation is exceptional in its own way."

    Democrat President Roosevelt (1933-1945) “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:

    “We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” which included:

    -The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation

    -The right of every family to a decent home

    -The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health

    -The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.

    Democrat President Johnson’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama has thrust national healthcare upon us, the hallmark of all socialist and welfare states.

    25 years ago none of the above was common knowledge. It is only because of more honest, unbiased reporting on the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent 25 years ago!) that today we know that the democrat party has been gradually changing America into a European style welfare state.

    -2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.

    -6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.

    -Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.

    And Obama’s economy reflects his party’s aspirations:

    Obama said, "I can say that 14 days after I signed our Recovery Act into law, we are seeing shovels hit the ground." (3/3/09 http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/03/03/O%E2%80%A6

    Since he bragged about that, three and a half years later the unemployment has been over 8.1%.

    Maybe he meant “Shovel ready jobs for government union workers”?

    -7/8/11 U. S. News Report (usnews.com): The actual number of private sector jobs decreased since 2008. Government jobs increased. During the worst of the downturn, the private sector was hammered with massive job losses, while the public sector held fairly steady.

    -6/8/12 Investors Business Daily: “Private-sector jobs are still down by 4.6 million, or 4%, from January 2008, when overall employment peaked. Meanwhile government jobs are down just 407,000, or 1.8%. Federal employment actually is 225,000 jobs above its January 2008 level, an 11.4% increase.”

    -6/11/12 Cato Institute (http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/obama-vs-%E2%80%A6 school enrollment has minimally increased over the last few decades, but teacher employment has exploded — the public school workforce has grown 11 times faster than student enrollment over the last 40 years.” Furthermore, on a per pupil basis, the inflation-adjusted average cost of a K-12 education has gone from about $55,000 to about $150,000.”

    Homosexual marriage is a strange proposal they have made.

    The richest people in America stated that they would not mind paying higher taxes as its only fair.

    Bill Gates gives more to charity than any other human being.

    The taxes the rich Liberals pay don't go towards charity any more than yours or mine.

    Jesus did not have a political affiliation.

    Barack Obama did not stand behind the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and he most certainly does not represent 99% of the people. He is a politician that hasn't kept his campaign promises, and we elected him because he lied he could fix the economy ~ its not just something he inherited.

    Liberals would like to legalize marijuana and allow people to marry their dogs. If you were in San Francisco, you might not like the idea of the Liberal mentality so much. Its lackadaisical, rude, self-centered, immoral, and perverse.

    McCarthyism making Liberals out to be Communists, which unfortunately turned into something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Perhaps because those with power to send the message widely want you to believe it to keep you away from that power...

    Your premise is false. It isn't. Since you're a conservative, you don't take kindly to reality.

    Goldwater.

    Really as simple as that.

  • I'm a liberal because....

    - I believe that if people don't succeed it's always someone else's fault.

    - we must always accept other cultures and always hate our own.

    - I believe I am entitled to success even if I do nothing to achieve it.

    - I know nothing of history and I refuse to learn from the mistakes of the present.

    - when something SOUNDS good it must BE good.

    - I'm entitled to the money you earned but you're not.

    - I believe class warfare will lead to a better society.

    - I want what you have but I don't want to do what you had to do to get it.

    - anyone who is suffering is automatically a saint.

    - anyone who is poor is automatically a victim.

    - if it hurts my feelings it should be illegal.

    - I hate myself and my country for reasons I don't understand and can't explain.

    - "tolerance" means you must tolerate me but I will never tolerate you.

    - I believe in freedom of speech... except for if you disagree with me.

    - I have never had to fend for myself or earn what I have.

    - it feels cool to yell slogans and pretend I know what's going on.

    - I believe more rules and more government will always solve our problems.

    - other people should be forced to live the way I tell them to live and think the things I want them to think.

    - I know what's best for you and you don't.

    - I believe people should be required to make the right decision under threat of prosecution.

    - if conservatives do it it's oppressive fascism, if liberals do it it's enlightened progressivism.

    - I'm afraid of responsibility.

    - If you're successful and I'm not it's because of how evil you are, never because of how lazy or incompetent I am.
