The liberals in government ARE principled. The problem is their principles are to concentrate money and power in a permanent political class. They are consistent and dedicated to their principles. It's just that their principles are evil.

Concentrating money and power on a permanent political class? Sounds like both of the major parties. The bad part is that they cannot survive by the philosophy of do no harm. For every action is an equal and opposite reaction. One law may benefit a few but hurt many in the process. At best, they can only rely on the philosophy that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

I agree that it is both parties. That's the point of the original meme. I'm not sure what you're saying with the rest. In government, the needs of the many should not always outweigh the needs of the few. That's democracy and it always leads to mob rule. Be very wary of bumper sticker logic. That leads to the liberal side. ????

I said needs, not wants. A great nation looks at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs ) then look at how are society acts upon those. Why are these important? Look at our society: the US. Us. We are a war like nation trying to look like we aren't. Okay. Much of our economy is driven by war. How do you think the Great Depression finally ended. Young men were fighting overseas to protect the homeland. Those still home had some economic security in employment, working the jobs to make America safe as well as jobs to provide the necessities of life for those home. My dad was 4-F during that time because of a car accident in 1927. He was left with a bum leg and only one eye. They told him that in December of 1941. But he was able to find work in the war effort as a welder at a local factory. Decent money for a handicapped guy: the best paying job he had. After the war, the company let him go because of GIs returning to their civilian jobs. While Dad was good at what he did, the company decided to let him go, because, after 4 years welding, they were concerned about him losing his sight in his remaining eye. But during the war, the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few. Let's go back a bit further: how were our young men able to transition from civilian life to military life so quickly. While some had some military experience, the majority didn't. But a program that was aimed to put men back to work helped. The CCC, one of FDRs programs, was the main impetus there. While the conservative faction in congress fought hard, and finally got it disbanded, while it was around, the men in those camps learned skills that would help them on the front line. How many tank operators ran bulldozers on projects. It didn't matter what the position, the CCC was run by the Army Corps of Engineering: all members of the CCC ended up working under Army discipline and training. That training helped when volunteers and draftees streamed into the bases around the country. CCC recruits were already familiar with army life and discipline, and fit right in. Squad leaders were chosen from this group because they already had the training. We still benefit from the works of those CCC boys and men.

If you want to see how the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, I'll be happy to discuss the tax cuts that have taken place in the last century.

Exactly. Liberals want to take us over a cliff while doing 120 Miles per hour. A whole lot of Republicans think that if they bring us over the very same cliff at only 80 MPH, they are doing us a big favor. Conservatives want to avoid the cliff, and go in a totally different direction.

You are absolutely right! How many times did the house and the senate send repeal bills to Obama when he was the sitting president. And now that they have a Republican in the whitehouse, they won't send a simple repeal bill to him, because he might just sign it? I resigned from the Republican Party a few years ago, and am now a very conservative independent.
