What's wrong with Liberals? Why do they trundle around the country shouting “POLITICALLY INCORRECT” whenever they bump into things that don't support the homosexual agenda and act like them? The problem is, Liberals will never learn – they're just not capable of understanding why Conservatives gets on so well with other people.

Conservatives love other people, but liberals haven't got a clue what compassion is or why it matters. Poor things – the media has made them so closed minded that fighting and arguing is all they can do. Unfortunately, a Liberal is without a whole load of important stuff that Conservatives have. Okay, so Conservatives aren't perfect – we bicker from time to time and disagree on some details, but at least most of the time we're capable of getting along with other people and making logical choices.

Because of their notoriety for being grounded in academia, we're told that Liberals are philosophers. Well, if they were, they can't have been very good ones, or so many of them wouldn't be Atheists. It's not worth bothering to tell Liberals what's wrong with their thinking – they wouldn't listen because they're too busy shouting – but I'll tell you.

So what's the important stuff missing from the Liberals? Why do they think they're so superior to other people? It's because of their belief that superiority is based solely on illogical ability and similarity of thought – and that these are the only two things worthy of consideration. According to Liberals, anybody who doesn't act or think like them is necessarily inferior and therefore should be eliminated. They don't understand that other people might be subjects worthy of moral consideration, too.

Conservatives understand both liberal-mentality as well as our own mentality, and this is why we succeed where the liberals fail – we appreciate those human traits that liberals overlook. Conservatives realize that love and compassion are an important part of our lives, and that these play a part in our everyday lives when we're working out how we should act. And, unlike liberals, conservatives have the capacity to realize that other people also count. The problem with Liberals is that they are Atheists – and that's a really, really bad thing to be.

Liberals hate to be told, by mere Conservatives, that we consider ourselves culturally and morally superior to Liberals, but we do think this. The role the Bible plays in moral reasoning makes us superior to Liberals. Our capacity for logic and faith, together, is why we continue to beat those pesky and often obese liars. Because they lack the Bible, Liberals don't truly feel emotion the same way that conservatives do.

So how is the capacity to feel emotions relevant to moral reasoning? Okay, a Liberal might say, “having emotions such as love and compassion make us nicer people, but surely emotions are just irrational impulses that should be disregarded when we're working out our moral theory.” Many philosophers have thought so. However, both ancient and contemporary philosophers have plausibly argued that emotions can, and should, play a role when we're thinking about how to treat other people. One such philosopher is Martha Nussbaum. She argues that emotions aren't just unthinking impulses as Liberals say, but that they also include and element of belief and interpretation – they're a type of judgment.

An emotion such as fear, for example, isn't just a mindless response to the environment as Evolutionists would have us believe; it involves a belief that something scary looms, and that action should be taken to remove oneself from danger. This doesn't mean we should always trust our emotions – they can be wrong. But it does allow for the possibility of training our emotions to become appropriate responses to the world around us. As Aristotle wrote, the enlightened person is one who'll respond in the appropriate manner to each situation. This is what's missing from Liberals and Atheists – the ability to adapt their behavior according to the situations in which they find themselves. Rather, they just sit around and make noise, blaspheme and raise taxes.
