Boing Boing: My Modest Proposal: The U.S.A.R.�

Boing Boing: My Modest Proposal: The U.S.A.R.�

And so the whining continues. This one is almost humorous and almost witty. It's definitely condescending, as befitting this type of person who finds themselves on the losing side of a political argument. You know the type, a person who never is able to comprehend that the ideas they expouse are not shared and so there must be something wrong with everyone else. It does take a great deal of ego to believe that you are right when the majority of people think otherwise.

The writer is confused if he thinks that tolerance is a value he believes in. The article is proof against that. Slavery? Well you know it took a new political party to bring this issue up and bring it to a head. The Republican Party if you knew any history at all. And those politicians down south fighting to keep Jim Crow were Democrats from the Democratic Party. Humm. All those fine educational institutions he mentions as proof of certain geographical superiority clearly didn't give him any information to chew on.

His uneducated and uninformed screed continues where he randomly and falsely cherry picks what he thinks are 'educated' liberal views and those that are not. Limited government is not and never has been a liberal value. The idea that the folks in the red states want a theocracy is just plain ignorant. Really now, it's the efforts of the liberal judges and politicians who seek to eradicate every vestige of religion from the ceremony and history of life which is the radical viewpoint. Look at the founding instruments of the country, look at history. Ah but that might interfere with everything you already know and believe. Like I said, almost amusing.
