Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. Quote

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

~ Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr.

    I have suggested that the dems get a 'participation trophy' so they can wipe their tears and go home....

    Spoil children rebel against the Normal Responsibility of Adulthood. Socialist prefer a spoiled childish mindset regardless of age. One could wish the Corrupt leadership might come to their senses, But, It has been a well planed attack to demoralize and "stifle" the mind of our children, blinding them through entitlement. Not wishing to bite the hand that feeds them, misery loves company and the tears flow.

    It's even worse than that. It is the utmost of arrogance that they can make better life decisions for millions of people with millions of different life situations that those people can make for themselves.

    To "rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood" is to demand servitude -- for all. When I was in school, I could hardly wait to 'grow up' and get out of there...

    Yes, the key word here is "Modern" as he knew the true value of a true Liberal. Our emotions should be tempered with understanding and compassion and not subject to irrational sentiment.

    Oh, brother. More fevered crap. Does this help public discourse in any way? Talk about madness - get a grip.
