I've Been Saying This About Liberals For Years

From Bloomberg:
“Too many of my progressive friends seem to have forgotten how to make actual arguments, and have become expert instead at condemnation, derision and mockery. On issue after issue, they’re very good at explaining why no one could oppose their policy positions except for the basest of motives. As to those positions themselves, they are too often announced with a zealous solemnity suggesting that their views are Holy Writ — and those who disagree are cast into the outer political darkness. In short, the left has lately been dripping with hubris, which in classic literature always portends a fall.”

I have yet to hear from liberal in laws in Colorado and California about the election. Knowing them, I'm sure they are stunned. The one in California was big on posting Hillary and Bernies stuff everywhere and threatened to move out of the country. I wonder if they realize how high their taxes will be in Canada or Spain or Italy-places that are evidently liberal enough to satisfy them.

Ah, but Ellen K., these people love those Progressive policies so much that they're willing to pay for ...err, I mean get everybody else to pay for them.
They are so eager to finally pay for progressiveness that they're ready to up and move to Canada (but only the GOOD parts of Canada) any day now...any day...yup, maybe next year..

They are very tolerant of everyone's ideas.. as long as they are their own.
