Must-Read Article: Rob Jenkins at American Thinker notes that Americans are so politically polarized that each side believes the other must be literally insane to believe what they believe.
Since conservatives tend to be more thoughtful and introspective than leftists, this accusation might have some of you wondering, “Is it possible that we’re the ones who are clinging to crazy and irrational beliefs?” So Jenkins looks into some ways to determine the nature of reality and discover what is and is not true.
Spoiler alert: We’re not the ones who are crazy. Not when the other side is arguing that men can have babies.
I would add that one of the most famous definitions of insanity is to keep trying the same thing over and over in hopes that it will eventually work. We saw how socialism worked throughout the 20th century. We saw how meddling big government/socialism lite worked during the Obama Administration. And we saw how getting the government out of the economy’s way worked during the Trump Administration. So we did the lab work, and we know what works and what doesn’t.
Now, we have a lot of people wanting to reverse Trump policies, bring back Obama policies and socialism, and along with them, every other terrible idea of the last century, from censorship to religious oppression to surveillance states to judging people by their skin color.
And what do these boosters of proven failed ideas from the past call themselves? “Progressive.”
You tell me that’s not insane.
