We live in a failing liberal world yet liberals lack the IQ to see that liberalism causes the problems. If only we can have just a just a little more welfare, deficits, taxes, spending, entitlements, and regulations then liberalism will show its true worth! This is mindbogglingly stupid yet it is exactly what out liberal dum dums believe.

The craziest part about this post is that you believe it.

I sincerely wish it were so simple. In fact, our societies do seem to be having increasingly severe problems to do with failing civil rights and social programs as well as with the effects of over extended financial drag.

Why do you favor a test that you would clearly fail?

1) presidents don't control the economy
2) there is a huge lag so Clinton inherited a boom from Bush 41 etc
3) govt is very mixed so which compromise comes mostly from which party is impossible
4) FDR and OBAMA are 2 worst in history for 24 years so your numbers are wrong

What we do know for sure is the economy is liberal and bad, with incomes down, poverty up, social tension high and foreign policy a disaster so is more liberalism the answer???

When it's good, the POTUS had nothing to do with it.

When it's bad, everything is his fault, including James972 stubbing his toe the other day.

Look at this ****:

4) FDR and OBAMA are 2 worst in history for 24 years so your numbers are wrong

Nobody who knows what they're talking about would agree with this, from the vast scholarship on the subject amongst academia to the common sense of any person that chooses to not be a spiteful ideologue.

FDR is one of the finest men to ever lead our republic and Obama is mid-ranked.

Yeah, the liberal world sure is failing! Never mind that the world has been more peaceful for a longer time than at any other time in recorded human history, never mind that there's less violence relative to population than at any time before in recorded human history, never mind that as a whole, humanity's living longer, happier, and more highly-educated lives than at any other point in recorded human history...

...the liberal world's a complete and utter failure! See? And how do we know that despite the fact that humanity's NEVER had it so good, that it's all a failure? 'Cause the conservatives say so! That's why! And they can never, ever be wrong about anything ever!

Which is why Obamacare is the law of the land (as opposed to single-payer healthcare found in all other first-world democracies), same-sex marriage is legal nationwide (as it is in all other first-world democracies), public education is found in all developed nations...

...yeah, the world's growing more conservative all the time! We know this how? Because YOU say so! All we have to do is to ignore the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and suddenly we see just how right you are!

I beg to differ. How were civil rights 20 years ago? You know, before LGBT rights, Obamacare, and the Lily Ledbetter Act?

Each strain of the liberal policy mix had reached a different level. But 20 years ago, things had been underway for quite some time already. Lgtb people had been living absolutely wonderful lives for decades in Soho at that time.

Especially if you like total ignorance ,depression and world war in which 60 million die!! Imagine if all presidents did as well as FDR- human life on this planet would be non-existent!! People could believe the lies of Hitler Stalin and Mao so no surprise that our liberals could think FDR great.

better in the 1950's before the liberal upheivels of the 1960's. Today after civil rights we send more young black men to prison than were slaves in 1860, the black family has been destroyed, and the mentality is to have sex with strangers and kill the baby that results rather than to have sex with someone you love, form a family, and love the children that result. Isn't thinking fun?

yes because conservatives invented the nuclear bomb while liberals spied for Stalin. Stalin was slowly starving 60 million human beings to death while our liberals were working to give Stalin the bomb. Today our liberals are voting for Sanders who honeymooned in the USSR.

You need to watch this:

Bill Maher Asks Republicans To See Liberal California’s Success

BillMaher on HBO utterly decimated such a claim and he did so with facts and solid analysis.

Yeah, California is a great place to live, if, like Bill Maher, you can afford a house in Beverly Hills. He and the rest of his liberal pals do a great job walling themselves off from the hoi polloi, who struggle with one of the highest poverty rates in the country.
