    The trouble with liberals is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    The Liberal ideology is a theory , fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and which holds forth beliefs that have no basis in reality.

    They are Advocates of a policy that empowers a strong federal government to enslave its people with a high tax burden incident to the support of extravagant and unnecessary social programs destructive to both the work ethic among the lower class, and the incentive to innovate and succeed among the working class.

    "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."

    Liberals like to spend other peoples money!!

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

  • Most economists are not conservative. It's the corporate media who gives more attention to conservative economists who push austerity.

    You loves Krugman because he is Keynesian, not Classical, or even monetarist. Even in the Uk, Conservative has changed to Labor. In the US, it's now the time of Chicago, not Austrian.

    I don't propagabda anything , even to you.
