IF IDEOLOGUES PRACTICED WHAT THEY PREACH
Shortly after writing the progressive hymn “Imagine,” the late John Lennon would have given his wealth to the homeless and lived the rest of his resultant humble life on a commune without possessions, money, religion or anything else to potentially live or die for.
Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t be the richest woman in the House of Representatives.
Activist Michael Moore wouldn’t own several homes, Al Gore would be living in a crack-infested apartment complex, and both would ride the bus everywhere they went.
Hardcore environmental activists would reject everything even remotely associated with oil and electricity, thereby living a lifestyle that makes the Amish look recklessly modernistic.
Certain robber-baron capitalists wouldn’t pose as far-left progressives.
The net worth of the majority of federal-level progressive politicians wouldn’t largely consist of Wall Street investments and real estate..
Progressive politicians wouldn’t accept campaign contributions derived by capitalistic means.
Those who oppose corporate welfare for industries they don’t like would also oppose corporate welfare for industries they do like.
People who blanket denounce “greedy” corporate investors wouldn't participate in retirement investment programs much less demand high yield.
President Obama’s gross income and total wealth would equal the median entry-level white-collar condition.
Identity-politics activists wouldn’t become the monsters they claim to fight.
And, those who rant about the Koch brothers would also be calling out George Soros, the Ford Foundation, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates and Facebook tycoon Mark Zuckerberg.
