The true liberal believes in cause and effect while the rest of us believe that true evil exists and we must be prepared to confront that evil, regardless of time or place. The liberal believes that if there is a shooting, it is because there was a gun available, not because the murderer needed to carry out their evil intent using any weapon at their disposal, be it a gun, a knife, club or even fists. The liberal believes that if poverty exists, it is because others live without poverty, not because there are people who find it easier to live off the labor of those who are willing to work for a living. The liberal believes that government and laws are the answer to the problems of the individual, not the other way around. The liberal believes that any problem can be solved by throwing money at it and the more money you have, the more money you should be required to throw. The liberal believes in societal responsibility, not personal responsibility The liberal is not a bad person, just a person who practices bad citizenship The liberal believes that the Constitution and its attendant Bill of Rights are fluid documents rather than the cornerstone of our country without which we can easily crumble.
