Is the Left Truly Liberal?

Read Time:2 Minute, 4 Second

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.

Our country was founded as a liberal representative democracy, that is, a republic. In other countries at that time, a “conservative” was one who defended the unbridled authority of throne and altar, that is, royalty in political matters, the Church in spiritual.

But an American conservative has had the unique position of conserving liberalism, that is, freedom of thought, speech and economic activity.

But is the Left today practicing liberalism that conservatives should be protecting? The country has developed and entrenched bureaucracy which makes a point of not being swayed by the wishes of the voters. The explosion of so-called “public interest” groups has seen entities that have narrow interests with no compulsion to the democratic compromise our country was designed to assure. Even our elected “liberal” politicians are increasingly committed to illiberal policies which the voters did not seek. Did voters in 2020 wish open borders and inflation caused by restrictions on fuel? “Liberals” who once fought racism of all types now champion illiberal anti-white racism. The Left today is anything but liberal. Like Rousseau, for today’s Left, citizens who do not go along with its prescriptions for liberal “freedom” will be “forced to be free.” A citizen today may like her gas stove, but a “liberal” will soon come to take it away in the name of liberalism.
