Exactly what philosophy are the slogans “change” and “hope” tethered to?

Posted by madcap on October 22, 2008

I am moving to a new blog. See all my new posts at….


I have had more than one discussion with liberals at our local restaurant where their main points are “change” and “hope.” “All I know is that it’s time for a change” is the constant cadence from these deep thinking liberals. I often ask whether we should change our socks, or our underwear? I have not gotten any clear answer to this question any more than why they are voting for Obama.

I want an answer, I demand a clear, precise answer to my question; should we change our socks, or our underwear? Please liberals help me make a “choice.” Maybe it’s not a choice between the two, possibly we should change both our socks and underwear.

Maybe I’m just not smart enough to wrap my little mind around such a deep and profound political philosophy as “change.” Maybe I should watch Dancing With The Stars to help shed light on the deep mystery of “change.”

Or, just maybe, liberals are truly brain dead.

  1. You really should use your dictionary more. Definition of “Liberal”:
    1) Adj. respectful and accepting of behaviour or opinions different from one’s own; favourable to individual rights and freedoms.
    2) Adj. (in a political context) favouring individual liberty, free trade, and moderate political and social reform.
    3) Adj. (of education) concerned with broadening general knowledge and experience.
    Which of those do you not like?

    Definition of a liberal:
    1)Someone who bases their opinion on feelings rather than on rational thought.
    2)Someone who claims to be accepting of opinions that differ from their own, but in reality attempts to silence free speech.
    3)Favoring government regulation of every aspect of people’s lives.
    4)Concerned with indoctrinating people through the educational system.

    You also did not address the point of the post. What kind of political philosophy is “change?”
    This seems like a cheep slogan made for ignorant people who spend more tome watching Dancing With The Stars rather than thinking.

    You should read Leo Strauss “Liberalism Ancient and Modern” to clear up the confusion. Not the same my friend.
