Liberals Don't Ask "What Happens Next?"

By Dennis Prager: "In general, the Left does not ask the question, 'What will happen next?' when formulating social policy. Not thinking through the long-range consequences of their positions is liberalism's tragic flaw......


The major reason the Left advocates tax increases is not that these tax increases will help the American economy. Higher taxes rarely help the economy, and most liberals don't even make that argument. Their argument is about equality, the Left's paramount value. The animating factor for the Left is narrowing the gap between the rich and poor. That is why so few on the Left have had moral problems with Fidel Castro's totalitarian regime -- Cubans may not have liberty, but almost all Cubans are equally poor. Likewise, that explains left-wing support for Venezuela's Hugo Chavez even as he develops into a Castro-like dictator: He advocates economic equality." Read on.
