1. They can't do it; 2. They can't argue logically, basing their arguments on mere emotionalism and what Bertrand Russell calls "the driving force in a democracy"--envy. [I enjoy the occasion person of a leftist persuasion calling a guy like G. Gordon Liddy, who is often dismissed as an elderly, idiot crank, and the caller is almost certain to be greatly outclassed. I mean, it's not even close.]; 3. They intolerantly don't like the ideas expressed by talk radio, which threaten their hegemony they work so hard to inflict, starting with the young children in Kindergarten reading "Heather Has Two Mommies." Liberalism is a form of "soft" tyranny. It's not enough they control the government bureaucracies, Hollywood, education, and the media. They want it all, like the immature children they are. I hesitate to say the latter rather harsh conclusion if not for this fact: most liberals can't be bothered to have children. That would, after all, require putting someone else's needs ahead of their own.
