Five civil questions to post to your liberal friends
God Father Politics – David Bahnsen – 8/30/2014
This article is NOT intended as a device to make an argument in and of itself – these are real QUESTIONS – not answers.
1. Do you believe public employee unions have been a constructive force in American society or a destructive one? If the latter, do you acknowledge the relationship between public employee unions and the Democratic party/agenda, and how do you feel about that? If you believe they’ve been a constructive force in American society, could you elaborate?
2. Are you for MORE government in American lives or LESS government? The confusion lies in the left’s pretty consistent opposition to things like school choice and health care freedom, but pretty consistent support for things like abortion rights and gay marriage. Should we want more government for some things and less for others, and if so, how do you draw those lines?
3. Would you consider the “war on poverty” of the last fifty years to have been a success? If so, by what basis do you see it as such? If not, what do you think was done wrongly and by what basis do you think even greater federal government intervention would succeed in defeating poverty?
4. Do you like big money in politics or dislike it? If you dislike it, do you believe it should be demonized when the last name is Soros and Steyer or only Koch? At what economic point does a person lose his or her right to participate in elections, and regardless of what that point is, do you believe it applies to both parties or just one?
5. Does the economy function better with greater regulation or less regulation? If the former, can you think of an industry or company or product or innovation that has thrived with more regulation? If the latter, do you believe the current Democratic Party is committed to freer markets or more restrictive markets? Which one is better for middle class people?
