Is there anything the Left is right about!?
Let's make a list of the main issues of the Left:
AGW; Iraq is lost; 45 million American have no health insurance; nations with socialized/nationalized healthcare have better care than the USA; the rich aren't taxed enough; the world is running out of oil; Bush is Hitleresque, (but FDR - who actually interned US citizens - is a demi-god); Iraq was better off under Saddam; Gitmo and Abu Ghraib were gulags where innocent people were deliberately tortured as a matter of policy; water-boarding is torture; Europe hates us; border security is racist; profiling is racist; Republicans are racist; affirmative action is NOT racist; maintaining and expanding preeminent US military strength is threatening and destabilizing; off-shore drilling pollutes coasts - or risks it; the UN has greater moral authority than the USA; jihad is not a global threat; free trade hurts workers and reduces employment rates - AND SO ON.Every single one of the items on that list is false.
Which means, that the core - the very heart and soul of leftism is false, based on faulty descriptions of reality and faulty analysis.
And their prescriptions wouldn't work even if the problems they describe were real.
Truly leftism is an intellectually and morally bankrupt ideology.
