In my previous post on Iraq, I mentioned that liberals hate America.
The liberal sympathizes with the weak and hates the strong. If a libertarian/objectivist like myself sees a man who has become rich because of his hard labor and intelligence, we think that there is someone to be admired. But the liberal sees such a person and hates him, and desires to equalize society by stealing his justly earned wealth and giving it to the poor.
Nearly all liberal policies are about equalizing society. Liberals support high taxes to take from the rich, with huge welfare programs to redistribute that money to the poor. Liberals support trial lawyers because they see the tort suit as a way to take money from the rich and give it to the undeserving but poor plaintiff. Liberals support any program to take from whites, who they see as the strong race, and give to who they see as the weaker races. Liberals support animals because they are seen as weak compared to humans. Liberals hate testing in schools because it exposes that some of the students have superior skills; liberals prefer the illusion that all students are equal.
Liberals base their foreign policy beliefs on these same values. The United States is the strongest country in the world, which is why Liberals hate our country. Liberals favor the underdog nations of the third world. Liberals desire open immigration because they see that as a way of equalizing the world, by making the United States more like a third world nation. And they support generous foreign aid to redistribute money from the rich nations to the poor nations. They don't care if the poor nations are poor because of their corrupt governments and lack of free markets. Liberals hate free markets because free markets allow the intelligent and industrious to prosper at the expense of the unintelligent and lazy.
Liberals are always opposed to war because war tends to make the people patriotic, and patriotism is anethema to the liberal. Furthermore, liberals like the fact that weapons of mass destruction are spreading throughout the world, because it equalizes the power of the nations.
Of course not all liberals are so extreme in their views, but in all cases, the core of liberalism is based on the desire to hurt the strong and help the weak.
