U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) thinks that he is living in an alternate reality. The Hill quotes Kaine as saying, “I wake up some mornings and it seems like the campaign was a dream, and I wake up other mornings and think I might be living through some alternate reality now.”
I have news for Senator Kaine: The Political Left, as a whole, has been living in an alternate reality long before the 2016 presidential election.
According to that alternate reality . . .
#1 It is anti-worker to want workers to have the right to work without having to pay labor unions in order to work.
If labor unions were to demonstrate that they really are beneficial to all workers, then the former wouldn’t have much trouble getting the latter to join the former. The Teamsters Union is like that. The Teamsters have a good track record of taking care of their members.
#2 People who aren’t Americans have the right to enter the USA whenever they want no matter who they are.
This is why the Political Left won’t differentiate between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants.
When it comes to the USA’s immigration laws, the Political Left promotes the rule of emotion instead of the rule of law.
#3 You have freedom of speech only if members of the Political Left approve of what you have to say.
Left-Wing college snowflakes are just too delicate to tolerate any speech that conflicts with their beliefs.
#4 Wealth envy is a virtue.
Wealth envy drives members of the Political Left to try to tear down people who have acquired a large amount of wealth through honest means. If the former can’t have the same wealth as the latter, then the former want the latter to be deprived of wealth, even if the wealth was obtained by honest means.
This behavior on the part of the Political Left is unjust at best.
That is enough for now about this subject. I am not interested in writing a tome.
Yes, members of the Political Right can be guilty of living in their own alternate reality, but that doesn’t do away with the alternate reality of the Political Left.
Then again, anyone can be guilty of living in an alternate reality. As the Cheshire Cat said to Alice,
That is why I consider politics to be a circus with audience participation.
Of course, watching a circus wouldn’t be complete without refreshments.
