My Basic Optimistic Nature Looks Out

My Basic Optimistic Nature Looks Out and sees our future and our future is bright despite what the current regime may do, may have done. We have survived these misguided side trips before. We have been ignored, reviled, frowned upon and laughed at by the world outside our borders before. Still when we come out the other side of this short painful trip we will remain the resilient people we have always been.

This does not mean that we site idly by waiting for that better day to arrive.

My Basic Cynical Nature Looks Out and questions the true motives and purposes of those in power. There I see a group that, time after time, has twisted words and phrases to new meanings meant to carry people who believe in other ways along with them to an end that is not clean, ethical, moral or honest. In my heart I know those who lead us now would carry us into dictatorship. Whether by intent or a side effect I cannot tell today.

My Basic Cynical Nature Looks Out and questions the true motives and purposes of those in power.

Why is it that those on the Left generally seem to assume the following:

1. The motives of those on the Left are to be taken as stated and are, therefore, Good and True.

2. The motives of those on the Right are, ipso facto, Nefarious and Wrong (after all, anyone with Good and True motives must agree with the Left).

3. The results of any decision should be judged by the motive of that decision, as defined in point 1 and 2 above, without regard to the actual consequences of said decision. The fact that those on the Right have, on occasion, declared motives that are not EeeeevilTM is to be interpreted solely as further evidence of the Right's mendacity.

4. The Right is literally incapable of any policy preferences that might conceivably benefit anyone other than their Corporate MastersTM. The fact that many "Corporate MastersTM", such as Ted Turner, actively support the Left's agenda is, obviously, further proof of the Corporate Right's EeeeevilTM.

Given the easily-documented superiority of free markets over planned economies, why is it that the Left refers to itself as "reality based"?

A) your argument is with some myth you have created. Not this author.
B) I am always optimistic as to outcomes and cynical as to motives not matter the "side."
C) I have been on the right. Really on the right.
