The Logic of the Left

I ask my self quite frequently, “are people on the left really so blind they fail to see how illogical they are?”  One of the latest examples of the left’s lack of logic is the outcry and “forced” resignation of Firefox CEO for donating $1,000 to a traditional marriage cause in 2008. Yes, he was basically forced out of his position in 2014 for giving $1,000 to a cause in 2008.  Compare this to at the very same time in 2008, President Obama was giving speeches about same sex marriage vs. traditional marriage and Obama said on many occasions “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman .  I am not in favor of gay marriage.”   I ask you, why no outrage from the left gestapo over Obama and why is the same gestapo group not going after him?  The ONLY answer that makes sense; the left has no logic.

“Logic  has two meanings: first, it describes the use of valid reasoning ; second, it names the normative study of reasoning or a branch thereof.”  When one looks at the left’s actions in the above referenced example, there appears to be no “use of valid reasoning.”  In fact, there is no sense of anything in the actions of the left in the above example.  In fact, it would be correct to say the left used no reasoning of any kind when they attack one person for his actions but praise the another person who holds the exact same sentiment as the person the left attacked.  

You say that is only one example.  maybe the left is only illogical when it comes to gay marriage.  Well let’s see if there is any other times the left shows their illogical side.  How about late-term abortion?  The left is all for late term abortions.  They do not care a child is viable during a late term abortion, in fact, they do not care about the life of the child who is sentenced to death in a later term abortion.  However, the left’s argument for gun control is a law should be passed “even if it saves one child’s life.”  Take a look at the left’s Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.).  She is opposed legislation to ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks — even if it would “save one life.”  However, she is in favor of restricting guns to law abiding citizens if it will ‘save the life of one child.”  I guess she is only in favor of a child’s life if it is threatened by a gun but does not care if that same child’s life is threatened by a scissors to the skull.  Logical?  No.  There is again, a lack of “valid reasoning.”  

Well, you say, that is only two examples.  maybe the left just has those two things that do not make sense.  No, take a look at the Patriot Act.  The left, especially senator Obama,  opposed everything about it when President Bush enacted it.  It was “unconstitutional,” “un-American,” “illega;,” etc etc etc.  However, when President Obama made the Patriot Act even more liberal the left loved it!!  It was “needed,” “a great weapon against terror,” “a necessary weapon,” etc etc etc.  Logic?  Reasoning? No and no.  Then we could look at the deficit.  senator Obama said it was “un-American when President Bush’s deficit hit $8 trillion.  Senator Obama said about the debt then, it was a “reckless fiscal policies”, and a sign of “leadership failure”.  He also said “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”  WOW!! This is the guy we want for president!!  He will lower the debt and show some real leadership??!!  Nope.  Instead, President Obama has, in his six years as president, increased the debt more than ALL presidents combined!!  That is, he has increased the debt more in six years than all presidents since Washington!!  What does Obama say about that? Obama HAS to spend that much top “protect the full faith and credit of the United States.”  This is from the same man who said if you elect him he will not put “the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.”  WOW!!! Somehow quadrupling the debt is not putting the burden of the debt on the back of “our children and grandchildren.” Logic?  Reasoning?  No and no.

So fellow citizens, why do people keep putting these illogical and non-reasoning people in government positions?  Using logic and reasoning the only answer is…the voters of the left have no logic and reasoning skills.  They believe anything that comes out of the mouth from a person with a “D” after his/her name.  When a person acquires logic and reasoning skills they inevitably become conservatives.
