Got this far. As much as I enjoy the snarky sarcasm, he gets it wrong right off the bat. Yes, conservatism is an ideology and liberalism isn't, that's because liberalism is a "method" to governance. It seeks to try what actually works as opposed to simply following dogma regardless.
I find it rather amusing that Liberals have hijacked the idea of 'objective realism'. Their entire philosophy is based on idealogy, they have tried to put those idealogies into practice several times in direct spite of facts and suffered catastrophic- albeit elaborately predicted- failures.Housing projects would be a classic example, relevant to me since I live in the city that was Ground 0 for them. They tore them down to make room for another deluded ideal- "mixed rate housing" where the former CHA residents are commingled with retarded idealists who are dumb enough to buy a house next to them...... and who are those idealists? Callous conservatives? No. It's your typical young, tragically naive liberal type who doesn't understand what they're in for, since they've been force-fed leftist ideology on race- the holiest and most sacred cow- since birth. The inevitable outcome is that they learn that lesson the hard way. Their idealism gives way to hard, hard truisms and now, it's slightly easier to find someone willing to bareback an AIDS whore than it is someone willing to buy into the various "mixed rate communities" since we now have a decade of frontline reports posted on the internet, as far as how awful they really are.
"My wife and I moved in with great hopes. We were thrilled to be living so near downtown in such an exciting and diverse community....(ten paragraphs later)So after our third burglary, fifth stolen car and not having had a good night sleep since god knows when because the gang bangers next door were having their fifteenth consecutive all night cookout/block party, my wife said that if we didn't sell and move out, she was going to leave me for a Republican lawyer who lived in Naperville...."
I don't know how a liberal can say that liberals are the 'realists' and keep a straight face, but I suppose they arrived at that conclusion employing the same naivete on life that makde them a liberal in the first place.
