My Liberal Cousin is the Poster Child of Liberalism

Many families have their pockets of liberals, and I have mine too.  But the one family liberal that drives me the craziest is my cousin – we’ll call him Eugene.  He’s the youngest son of a dear Aunt of mine, who is many years younger than me, and hence not someone I am very close with.  Yet we talk and are on pretty good terms with one another.  We’re on Facebook together, we follow each other on Twitter and Text back and forth every now and again.  But to be honest, that’s about as far as I can go because he drives me insane.  I’ve been near to de-friending him on Facebook numerous times because of his liberal ramblings, that are often quite horrendous.  He’s the typical liberal who relishes being as condescending, and scandalous as possible.   A lot of what he writes is plain offensive, and I know at least one other family member has de-friended him on Facebook because of it.

He’s family, what can I say?  I haven’t de-friended him.  Instead I simply ignore his postings, but occasionally he posts something that just strikes me so wrong that I simply can’t ignore it.  Such was the case this past week.  Eugene is an OWS supporter, and deeply believes in the liberal mantra that that the world owes him everything.  Including a college education, a home, a job, and everything in between.  And he doesn’t believe that he should have to work for any of it.  He is a few years out of High School and had started attending a local community college immediately after, but dropped out because his grades were horrible and something about ineligibility for more student aid because of defaulting on previous loans.  Instead of doing his class work and earning good grades, he did drugs and partied.

He’s in a terrible bind because he has no job skills to speak of, and can find no work other than minimum wage, bottom of the ladder work.  He was working two jobs until recently, but was just furloughed this past week from one of them for at least 60 days and is now worried he won’t be able to pay his rent and his car payment.  But from reading his posts all week you’d think he was fired.  Mainly because he said he was.  I had to ask him why he was fired, half expecting to to hear a story of disrespect toward his manager or some such.  Again, mainly because of all the horrible things he writes about her.  From his writing on Facebook I have this horrible picture of him flipping her off on a daily basis, and punctuating it all with a tirade of profanity.  He wasn’t actually fired, but was chosen to be furlough and he’s taking it out on the world.  Instead of blaming his particular situation on his previous actions — having to drop out of school and current ineligibility to receive more financial aid — he condemns his employer and capitalism.  Instead of blaming his lack of initiative to gain more marketable job skills while he was employed, he doubles down on the Occupy Wall Street nonsense.  As if the banking industry had anything to do with his sloth.

That is the one thing that strikes me the most of liberalism.  Liberalism pays no credence to personal responsibility.  Liberalism allows no personal faults.  Liberalism demands tolerances of the liberal, but refuses to be tolerant of dissenting opinion or belief.  Liberalism is the philosophy of envy.  Envy of anyone that has worked hard and achieved more than the liberal.  And liberalism is the philosophy of thievery.  How else could you possibly describe the advocation of forcibly taking from one to give to another?

Such a striking difference between Eugene and his older brother, who graduated college and is now nearly two years into what is looking to be a promising career.  In Eugene’s brother just accepted a higher paying job in California and will be moving there within the next few weeks.  Life is looking up for the conservative brother who buckled down and is doing what he needs to be doing to get ahead in life.  Not so much for his younger brother, who instead is blaming the rest of us for his misfortune.
