How to not be a liberal.


 

Going from peace-loving hippie to condoning the destruction of property during a protest is not called adjusting to new times, it’s called being a hypocrite. Liberals are the ones that taught me how to be a better person. My life motto used to be, “Hope for the best, expect the worst.” Then a hippie pointed out that this implies that I was expecting the worst to happen all the time. Not what I meant, so I changed it. “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.” Then a liberal, one I consider to be part of the worlds solution, pointed out that this phrase still contains negativity at a time when I am trying to eliminate all negativity from my life. These people changed my life motto to, “Hope for the best, be prepared.” Where are these peace loving hippies now? “F**k Trump, protest and smash everything!” The Dalai Lama, MLK, Gahndi, these people are part of the solution. Not the new liberal standard.
