"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Well done.

Scratch the thin skin of a modern "liberal" (I prefer Progressive, as the word "liberal" used to imply something very different, historically) and you will find a fascist lurking beneath.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

As far as I can see, liberals fall into three basic categories: (1) losers, perverts and lazy people who simply want free stuff; (2) true believing intellectuals; and (3) opportunists who prey on the former two.  For the opportunist, the Democrat Party is a mafia-like organization that inoculates one from culpability for one's own sins.   Ironically, one ends up being praised by the very people one is screwing.  People like OPapaDoc, Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid are never held accountable.

For the opportunist, liberalism is not an ideology, but a mental disease that can be instilled in people and exploited.  When the levers of government can be used to create more dependents, that is when the opportunists succeed and the Party flourishes.  This is why Democrats revere FDR so much.  He kept the country in chains for nearly a generation.

I agree on the meaning of liberal.  It's long past time that actual liberals - most American republicans, for example - retake the word.
