What scares the Left

Here's a list of the top three things Left-wingers fear the most:

1. Capitalism

2. Free trade

3. Wal-Mart.

Well maybe it would allay their fears if they checked out Rossputin's blog, as it shows -- using actual facts -- that free trade, capitalism and Wal-Mart are really good things.

On second thought, it wouldn't allay their fears at all.

Facts seldom trump emotion.

I would say parents looking after their own children and parents educating their own children would be on that list.

You must be referring to the NDP.

Anyway, I think your nuts - absolutely so far off base sometimes I wonder if you're on something.

... The central denominator in all three "fears" is liberty. The Left fears liberty because it goes hand-in-hand with personal responsibility.
... Which, requires maturity, which is the real fear.
