To a liberal, a progressive liberal, the end always justifies the means if all turns out well. If not, then it is quite okay to make up a falsehood to cover the actions or blame others for the unintended consequences. And, there are always “unintended” consequences even when the objective is accomplished.

The consequences occur because the primary goals are never thought through from beginning to end. If an attempt is made to do a perceived good, then whatever waste is produced along the path to that goal is not only acceptable, it is necessary. Niccolo Machiavelli would have been a progressive leader in today’s world.

Bill Clinton’s own words to Larry Wilmore, “I believe we have done a lot more good than harm and I believe this is a good thing”, state the above quite distinctly. Any harm done along the way to achieving our goals is okay, might be another way of expressing that. To which I say, Vince Foster would undoubtedly have a different opinion, but he can’t share it. And, of course, “What difference, at this point, does it make”, anyway?

Regarding the secreted emails, Obama offered his opinion on Saturday. Obama, who heard about Hillary’s email system through the news, just like we commoners, said this about Clinton’s decision to cull through and share some, “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.” And, “I think that the fact that she is putting them forward will allow us to make sure that people have the information they need.”

Here again, is the elite liberal perception that Clinton and Obama’s decision making handlers are the only ones capable of determining what information the people need. If they don’t want us to have some of the information, it’s because we don’t need it. If the men in Benghazi were purposely sacrificed for the greater good, so be it. We don’t need to know that. If the money donated to the Clinton foundation and presidential campaign is payback by corporate leaders around the globe for special favors, we don’t need to know how our officials are selling out our country for personal gain.

Personally, I prefer the good old days. At least then the perception was that people treated others with respect and took personal responsibility for their actions and well being. Today, showing pride by scamming the system becomes a boasting right. Swindling, slandering or killing others is just business as usual.

    An extremely good post, Bob.

    “For those who have fought for it, Freedom has a flavor the defended will never know.” A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to, ‘The United States of America’ for an amount of, ‘Up to and including my life.’ That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.’
