Why Liberals are smarter, wiser, and more virtuous than Conservatives

WB has a number of esteemed liberals.  Our friends on the left have very strong views and are encouraged by the media and the schools which make lots of money and gain lots of power from keeping our leftist friends in the dark.  But they are smarter, wiser, and more virtuous than those of us on the right, and if you don't believe that, just ask them.  They will tell you so themselves.  There are a lot of reasons why they are smarter, wiser, and more virtuous than conservatives, and while it is an exhaustive list, we will cover only a few here.


They are smarter than conservatives because they are very good with Google often.  In case you don't know, being able to Google a topic and read the top five search results gives one an intelligence that is not obtainable anywhere else.  Liberals are also smarter than conservatives because their Mummy and Daddy often pay fortunes to top flight liberal schools.  Since they pay a fortune for an 'education' they are obviously smarter than the rest of us.  Don't be deceived by the naysayers.  That little piece of paper that says you have a college degree really does mean that you are a lot smarter than everyone else.  It doesn't matter if you are incompetent, inept, and socially foolish, that college degree proves your superiority, don't let anyone fool you about that, my friend.  They are smarter than us because they use profanity.  It demonstrates that their vocabulary is so advanced and they know so many words that they have to use profanity, since their knowledge of so many words means they simply must use these.  Using profanity helps them to condescend to us common folk.  I'm awful grateful they use profanity, otherwise I might not be able to understand them.  They are smarter than conservatives because their fellow liberals tell them so, and when a lot of people like you and tell you something, that means that whatever they are telling you must be true. 


They are wiser than conservatives because they make a lot of mistakes and stubbornly  hold onto their pride and folly.  It takes a very wise person to have the college of life beat sense into them and still continue on, unabashed.  They are wiser because they see what they believe, while we foolish conservatives believe what we see.  If we were wise, we would learn to put on our liberal fairy tale glasses and see what our liberal puppetmasters in the Media tell us to see.  When I put my CNN glasses on, I see that America is a big bad nation and we are mistreating immigrants, we are horribly racist, Obama was a Savior, Obama never had any scandals, Democrats love the poor, and government health care and welfare are wonderful ideas. 


They are more virtuous than conservatives because they believe in abortion.  You have to be very virtuous to be able to murder a baby.  It takes a lot of self discipline to murder a baby for the Benjamins.  They are also more virtuous than conservatives because they freely have all kinds of sex outside of marriage.  They are so virtuous that they realize that homosexuality is a wonderful idea, and the STD's that result from it, often, are simply the Lord's reward.  They are virtuous because they confront their problems by taking psychotropic drugs and going to worlds the rest of us aren't virtuous enough to see.  They are virtuous because they can deceive people very well, and themselves too, to boot.  I wish I could be as virtuous as a liberal, and murder a baby in an abortion clinic without batting an eye, and run to the border and holler and screech about temporarily separating a child from his illegal alien parents.  Houdini himself couldn't pull off a magic trick like that. 


So you see, Dear Friend, we all must study to be as smart, wise, and virtuous as Liberals.  They are so happy that most of them are drugged clean out of their minds.  If only we were wise, we would be able to understand the wonders behind Marxism, and understand the amazing math that necessitates the horrid deaths of millions.  Fellow conservatives, let us diligently study to learn these terrific lessons, for if we master them, we too can be smart, wise, and virtuous.  Keep on Keeping on!:).

No, it's not like liberals are smarter or dumber than anyone else; liberals are simply "better people". Because they are "liberal", that automatically means that they are the cream, and everyone else is the scum. The Toyota Prius is such a gleamingly scummy example of disguided and misguided liberalism. A Prius splattered with leftist bumper stickers is a greater roadway menace than a drunk driver getting a blowjob while having a furious argument with his (soon-to-be-ex-whatever) combined. But, it's "eco-friendly", so it is totally OK that they can completely TRAMPLE your road rights, or any other rights for that matter, because, driving an eco-friendly vehicle, I'm automatically a better person than YOU are.

Liberals are smarter then Conservatives because the work as a team.  They get people to work for the common good defined by the team leaders like bees and ants.  The rules of the team are more important then the laws of business, religion, and a nation.  Much like criminal gangs, the mob.   Everyone is expendable that are not members of the team and even team members can become expendable. 
You only need to look at teams Democratic house of Representative members,  Senate members, Hollywood, FBI upper management, DOJ upper management, in fact large portions of every federal and state agency.  To see the working of the team gains the nation well being.  Laws and social standards are unimportant if they get in the way of the team.  
I agree that a team that will do anything to achieve its objective is powerful and to be a member of that team seems to be smart move.  Team members are smarter then the average individual because they are part of the collective mind.   This reminds me of the Borg on Start Trek.

Is it smart:
To be a team member that share common beliefs and may disagree how to achieve them.  The team is a little chaotic.
To be a team member is the first and primary importance and what the team does to achieve its goals is not important.  Anything goes and you as a team member to stay a team member will do anything.  The team is smooth running.

Michael B,
Now you just leave my Prius alone.  Lol.   I'm not liberal, nor truly conservative; wrather I am an issue by issue guy.
I didn't buy my Prius C for environmental issues at all.  I bought it because I love the feeling of driving 4 people up I-95 to New York, with the air conditioning on and getting 57 MPG.  I bought it because I trust the Toyota brand.  I bought it because it was cheap.   Its does 0-60, er, um, eventually.
The only bumper sticker it has ever worn was Ben Carson 2016.  Alas, that had to come off.
Ryan Messano Added Jul 6, 2018 - 10:51am
Yes, they are better, Michael B.  You and I need to stop being 'uppity' and learn our place under our liberal feudal overlords:).  Yes, and saving gas and not littering is the height of being a good human.  These are the sacraments of the liberal church, and earn one the right to get a liberal salvation and penance for the sin of being a human virus. 
FJ, liberals are attracted to my writing like a moth to the light.  It's polarizing. 
Stone posting bricks.  At least you're honest this time.  Most of the time you post bricks by writing words. 
Yes, Thomas, they do work as a team, no doubt about that.  Just like the Orcs and Wargs work together in the Hobbit.  Evil always bands together.  They are a mafia of sorts.   
Ryan Messano Added Jul 6, 2018 - 10:55am
Yup, Dino, they often fail to think logically.  That pretty much describes a liberal.  Often he-motional.
Liberals are the latter, Thomas.  They don't care what their leaders tell them, they are obedient servants.  They have no values, so the values of the team become theirs.

James E. Unekis Added Jul 6, 2018 - 11:23am
Good post.  I do think that both liberals and conservatives are guilty of over stereotyping each other.  I say over since some stereotyping is simply the brain categorizing observations and experiences.  For example, I tend to avoid flying insects with black and yellow striped abdomens; I don't need to touch each one to make sure it fits the pattern.
I don't like it when my whole belief system is assumed by someone else based on my stand on one topic though.
There are numerous people on both sides that will switch their views, topic by topic, through fair discourse.  Those who can't even entertain discussion on a single topic, however, are more likely to be in lock step on wide field of issues.
By the way, Romans 1:18-32 is supportive of some of your views.    Ephesians 6:12 might help explain why you experience frustration with some of these liberals.
Ryan Messano Added Jul 6, 2018 - 11:30am
Thank you James.
By the Bible's standards, every last one of the 65 people who voted for Hillary are going to hell.  Not all Republicans are headed for heaven either. 
As was said in scripture, "If you err in one point, you are guilty of the whole law".
I agree with Romans and Ephesians, and would add a portion of Ephesians 4 to describe liberals.
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
James E. Unekis Added Jul 6, 2018 - 12:58pm
I'm pretty sure that you would agree that voting one way or another does not determines who enters heaven.  Is it not only faith in GOD's gift; his son crucified that determines that?

re:"WB has a number of esteemed liberals. "

Can you name one? 
Anyway, I disagree with your main premise
" Liberals are smarter, wiser, and more virtuous than Conservatives"
Generally I find the two groups just about the same. The main difference is in the old days intolerance was mostly associated with the conservatives. But now the liberals have it in spades.  
One of the characteristics that is applicable to both sides is their inability to self reflect. For example, this statement of yours
"Our friends on the left have very strong views"
is very interesting, coming from someone who expresses very strong views on a continual basis. 
Ryan Messano Added Jul 6, 2018 - 1:55pm
I meant 65 million, but I'm persuaded voting sure does affect one's heavenly status, James.  One can't vote for parties that hate and oppose God and be on your way to heaven.  That's not how it works.  Those who love God love those who love God, and hate and abhor the ideals of those who hate God. 
Faith without works is dead.  The American church has the faith, belief, and grace ideals stressed too strongly. That's why 90% of American Christians know more of their televisions than their Bibles.  How can one know and obey God, and do as Christ said, "if you love me, keep my commandments"? 
For salvation, meaning freedom from sin and it's consequences, five components must be true: One must have faith, belief, repentance, baptism, and confession of sin, not necessarily in that order.

Ryan, liberals are better people because they care about others.  They see a poor person, and want them to live a better life, they see a failing business and want it to succeed, they see people coming to our country and want to give them a home and a job, they see people that cant afford health care and want to give it to them. 
The people on the right want to deny this compassion to those that are less well off.  Therefore the people on the right are mean spirited, and lack compassion.  Even George Bush admitted this when he used the phrase compassionate conservatism, as though saying it would make it so.
Of course what the liberals want is impossible, but they  dont realize that.  It is difficult to impossible to make the playing field level, much less to equalize the outcome for everyone.  Nevertheless they will continue on in their efforts of compassion while denigrating those who lack compassion.
Ryan Messano Added Jul 7, 2018 - 10:11am
Deludedly so, Bill.  Liberals are massive hypocrites.  They often sit in their hedonistic pleasure palaces and whine about how no one is doing anything for the poor.  Or, if they actually get out in the streets to help the poor, like Barry the Fairy, they are doing it only to increase their power and pelf. 
Don't believe their nonsense for a minute.  If they truly cared for the poor they would take their own money, time, and possessions and teach the poor to get out of poverty and not be constantly trying to steal the taxpayers money to do jobs they refuse to do themselves. 
Also, let's remember, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions".  Despite the supposedly good intentions of liberals they do not know themselves and their wicked hearts pervert all their good intentions. 
The people on the right understand  you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink, and that if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.  Andrew Carnegie, the 2nd wealthiest man in American history, didn't give away houses, food, and clothing.  Instead, he gave away 2,500 libraries.  So that the common man might have access to all the knowledge and wisdom of history.  No one holds any of us back but ourselves.  Seek and ye shall find.  Liberals commonly devalue others and are proud.  They honestly believe the poor can't get anywhere unless the liberal helps them.  That's nonsense.  Everyone has the seeds for their own prosperity inside themselves.  Others can show them the way ONLY WHEN THE DISADVANTAGED PERSON SEEKS IT.  Adversity is supposed to make people ask questions they never asked before.  Some never do.  The idea we are supposed to give people making terrible decisions stuff to reward them for the rest of their lives is absolutely disgraceful to both the giver and receiver. 
Liberals never grasp the story of the Man and the butterfly.
A man found a cocoon of  handing on a small bush and as he watched a small opening appeared in the cocoon and inside was a butterfly trying to get out.
He sat there and watched the butterfly for hours as it struggled and struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole that it had made in the cocoon.
Then the butterfly stopped, as if it was stuck, as if it couldn’t get out and it couldn’t go any further.
Then the man decided to help the butterfly out.
He took a pair of scissors and snipped off some of the cocoon making the opening much bigger.
The butterfly then emerged easily, but it was not as it should be, it had a swollen body and small shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch it, expecting that any minute the wings would enlarge and expand enough to support the body, though this never happened.
The butterfly then spent the rest of its life crawling around with shrivelled wings and it was never able to fly.
What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the small hole in the cocoon and the struggle required by the butterfly to get through this opening was nature’s way of forcing the fluid from the swollen body into its wings so that the wings could then unfold and enable the butterfly for flight.     
Nor do they understand "The Push". 
We have a lot of  hurting people in America, but they alone hold the keys to their salvation.  I hear people whining about poverty and crime all the time on the left, but I never hear them whining about the causes: a Lack of Virtue and Wisdom, which are easily and freely remedied by reading and obeying the Bible, and going to the library to avail oneself of it's treasures.

Agreed, but most churches teach that since sins are forgiven for the asking then, especially with Roman Catholics, the priest clears out the sin box. 
Also, good works is not good enough, neither is  compliance to the various laws and mandates for conduct. It appears that attitude is most important here. Note that none of us can get a  good 'score' on the sin lists so what is left? Attitude and true grace are all I see.

True, indeed. Many of the liberal 'programs' waste tax money and work in reverse to increase poverty such as welfare, being soft on drugs and crime and teaching that the plight of the poor is caused by Republicans who desire to see old folks eat dog food and other wild accusations.

Ryan Messano Added Jul 7, 2018 - 12:31pm
Yes, I agree we can't get salvation through our good deeds alone, but we certainly can get condemnation with our unrepented of bad deeds. 
The key distinction is that Hebrews 11, the book on faith, lists men with accomplishments that were inspired by their faith.  This easy grace and easy believism is destroying the church.  Millions believe that if you just believe, and don't attend a church and don't do anything at all, you are saved.  That's not so. 
The devils believe too, and they sure aren't going to heaven. 
The vast majority of Christians honestly think that if you believe, no matter what you do, you will go to heaven, when the Bible is full of people who lost their salvation, from Ananias & Sapphira, to Saul, to Judas.  Many are convinced if you die in fornication, you'll still make it to heaven becuz 'grace'.  That's totally bogus.  This failure to differentiate and critically evaluate has led to a lukewarm Christian church where everyone who dies is pronounced as 'being in heaven'.  When was the last time a person died in sin and the preacher announced at the funeral that they went to hell?  Probably never.  Yet, most people who die end up in hell, so someone isn't telling the truth.
Spot on comment when you said,

It is, Rush and Savage are kindred spirits.
Paul said, "This is a true saying, Christ Jesus died for sinners, of whom I am chief", yet that didn't stop him from denouncing his own sinfulness and others.  IMO, he described the liberals on here very well thousands of years ago.
Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;
10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.
11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;
12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptibl
Ryan Messano Added Jul 7, 2018 - 1:36pm
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

"Until the Democrat Party is utterly and completely destroyed, America is In Danger."
Not going to happen.  The best we can hope for is a revival of the Blue Dogs.  If the mid-terms turn into a Red Tide, then the Democrats with have to rethink putting forth progressive liberals.
The progressive liberals are in an echo chamber along with the MSM.  They honestly believe that the majority of Americans are with them.  Something like 84% support immigration control, yet the Democrats are out there with open borders.  It may be deja vu all over again, a replay of the 2016 elections where the MSM assumed a Clinton victory.  I say let them nominate the far left liberals and see where Americans stand.

To be sure, there are ignorant liberals who hold the belief they are morally superior to us.  However, it is said that politics is the art of persuasion and this article does nothing to convince the other side or independents.  You simply can’t convince someone of anything by insulting them and then making an argument.  So a bit of advice if you wish to stop slinging insults and start making progress, tone it down and show a little respect to your political adversaries. 
With that out of the way, you really need to think about the arguments you’re trying to make. Neither party can claim that “Mummy and Daddy often pay fortunes to top flight liberal schools.”  After all, blacks vote for liberals in the 90% range, are you saying blacks go to top flight schools? 
Liberals are the ones making promises of free stuff to those that don’t/can’t provide for themselves.  Because of these promises, poor people generally prefer liberals more than the middle class and rich.  And because of how we stack up economically (there are far more poor people than rich people), this also explains why conservatives don’t win every election. 
Do you now appreciate why that quote/argument is totally false?
Doug Plumb Added Jul 8, 2018 - 8:24am
I often wonder what is wrong with ordinary people who know we have big problems. They ask "what should I do" and all I can say is "I don't know".
When faced with a problem we cannot solve the only choice we have is to gain better understanding of the problem. As we do this, eventually the solution shows itself. We must remove our special goggles that prevent us from entertaining certain ideas. We must stop believing in coincidences.
We must learn that the word of officials is not evidence of anything. Evidence has mass. It would be world changing if everyone learned a little about Jurisprudence and the rules of evidence as well as what the common law actually is. This is an education. Proust and Shakespeare are entertainment.

You simply cannot respect degenerates who favor Islam, abortion, profanity, homosexuality, and all manner of sex outside of marriage.
Of course not all liberal voters go to college, but the vast majority of those on WB have.  I’m addressing them, not the illiterate liberals, which make up most of the Democrat Party, who can barely read or write.  If you attack the brains of a body, you kill it easier.

"History books are mostly lies, not because of what they say, but because of what they omit. Lie by omission is the worst kind of lie."
I would reword this to suggest that most history books are slanted toward what the author is pushing for by stressing certain carefully selected facts and minimizing other facts. Nobody can know all of history so only bits and pieces can be thrust into some book. Prevarication  is a more subtle way of twisting the truth. An example is Churchill's six vol. "The Second World War,"  or Montgomery's "History of Warfare."

I’m convinced, Doug and rycK, that evaluating history from different sources and understanding human nature can yield one the truth of any historical event very often.

rycK, RYAN,
Grace is never cheap as it cost our saviour's blood.  My nephews have warned me against proclaiming grace, especially to the young, as they see it as permission to continue to dwell in sin and never repent.
I came from a background where the opposite was taught; that we could achieve sinlessness in this life.  That teaching really damaged my faith.  "If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us."
The truth lies in repentance.  Any honest Christian will tell you that they have repented from a sin only to fall back in.  Repentance really means to change our mind about something.  Confessing to God exactly what we have done, coming to full grips with the gross violation it is of GOD's nature and struggling to not do it again, I think are key."  But GOD knows our hearts and is not deceived by a non repentant heart.
Sanctification is a lifelong process; we are born into sin and will die in sin.  Without grace we will either become filled with guilt or return to the law.  Per James 3:2 "We all stumble in various ways." 
Grace is the loving lifeblood of a mature Christian.  Grace is what allows us to overcome sin.  If we depend on a set of rules we can become self righteous and full of anger towards younger believers.  
If someone is  claiming to be a Christian but uses grace as a ticket to indulge in sin they will produce no fruit.  True Christians can spot that and GOD knows our thoughts.  
This is well covered in Romans.
Ryan Messano Added Jul 8, 2018 - 11:46am
Yes, we largely agree, James. 
My problem is with mainstream Christianity which has cheapened grace into something the Bible never intends.  The churches today are full of Christians who will show up for a few hours, 3 at most, and then go back to doing what they want to do.  What happened to 100 years, ago, when everyone attended church all day, and businesses were closed on Sunday?  Despite the fact that we were getting out of segregation and a few other evils, their morals and values were far stronger than ours.  And that is why.  Just as the Jews neglected God and slid into degeneracy, the lukewarm Christians of today are destroying America.  Case in point, 90% of America's Christians know their hellivisions more than their Bibles.  That's idolatry.  Anything that one gives more attention and focus than God is an idol, and it will destroy.  God is not to be put second to anything. 
I don't think we can achieve sinlessness in this life, but as 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". 
However, when dealing with major sins, there does need to be repentance, and it is our sorrow over our wrongdoings and a consciousness of how we offend God when he has ever done good for us, that often causes us to turn from the wrong that we do. 
Perfect contrition means to feel so badly for sinning as to never do it again, and this arising not out of sorrow for consequences, but out of a sorrow coming from a perfect love of God.

Poor Michka, always trying to fit in, and thinking those who dare think for themselves are misguided.  History tells a different tale.
James E. Unekis Added Jul 8, 2018 - 3:15pm
I see where you are coming from and to a large extent agree.  I would like to find a church that met all day Sunday, better yet, functioned more as a community.    AS we are to be in this world but not of it a believer needs to be around other believers.
What I mean is the modern church seems to have adopted the world's values.  An  hour or two once a week is not enough fellowship for those of us who get beat down by the world's constant hammering on material success and sex. 
Most Christian's lives are too full of activities and possessions to spare more than an hour, if that.
I've also noticed that as churches try to remain relevant they ignore true scripture study in favour of bigger and better rock bands, trips, activities and the like.  I would argue that scripture was, is, and will always be relevant.
Ryan Messano Added Jul 8, 2018 - 3:33pm
I'm still trying to find one, and am getting close to starting one, James.  I can honestly say not one church within 100 miles of me accurately teaches what is contained in the Bible, as it was taught in the First Century, or in the first 100 years of America.  Which is why California is now known as the "People's Republic of California".  When Christianity is removed from public life, corrupt tyrants speedily take over, as nature abhors a vacuum. 
Yes, that is so true, James.  Christians work better when they Pull Together.
Yes, one or two hours is severely insufficient.  We used to have all day Sunday to meet together, followed by meeting at least 3 days a week together as a church on evenings.  Nowadays, people think this is too taxing.  Meanwhile, their other activities are making them miserable and bring them no peace. 
And it's so true.  I don't see musical instruments in the NT.  Rock bands, trips, activities are nowhere in the Bible. They try to create all these things to replace studying the Bible and obeying it.  It never works.  American Christianity is a wreck right now.  Politics follows downstream of culture, and until Americans return to the Christianity we were founded upon, we will never return to the peace and prosperity we once knew. 
Joshua was told this by God right before he set out for the Promised Land,
"8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
I would argue that scripture was, is, and will always be relevant.
Completely agree.

@James, your Prius gets 57 mpg on the freeway....wow
In the early 80's, my friends Honda CRV HF was getting that "in town" with the A/C on. Another friend had a VW rabbit diesel that also got over 50 mpg in town. So government regulation forces manufacturers to produce cars that consume more fuel for their crony friends oil companies under the guise of saving the enviroment. A few years later and lots of extra money paid out for fuel, and you feel lucky to be getting that again? You should be mad at the cronies rigging the system to rob you.

We don’t live in the type of society where we can beat those we believe are fools.  We don’t live in the type of society where we can instill fear onto others for not agreeing with our beliefs.  So long as you live in a peaceful society of laws, the only tool at your disposal is persuasion. 
Don’t mistake me, you don’t have to like them or respect them.  However, if you wish to persuade them, you’ll need to be respectful and not display your true feeling about them.  Based on what you write, I don’t think you’re doing any persuading.  In fact, I’d argue you do more harm than good for conservative causes.  It’s almost like you’re working for them.

I'm trying to understand the liberal mind.  
The human brain can be roughly divided into two parts, the baser amygdala and  higher hippo-campus.  
I would ascribe to Liberals, the lower base functions.  Their appetites i.e. sex, anything goes, if it feeeels good do it, and emotion  are the driving forces.  In other words, the amygdala is over-riding the higher frontal cortex.
Also, there is some research coming out now, that there is a dopamine hit every time a liberal virtue signals.  The higher brain functions are not there as a regulator, so the dopamine hit allows the more animalistic behaviors to come to the fore.
This virtue signaling is pushing liberals to the left in an accelerating rate, as they have to out-do each other for moral preening.  In turn, this is pushing them way outside of the normal rational electorate - a self defeating pattern.
White people especially have pathological altruism.  They paint "others" with their paintbrush, even when the other is differentiated by over 10000 years of evolution.  It seems to be a uniquely white problem with pathological altrusists infesting the left.
Black Pidgeon notices it also in his video here.  The Chinese call this pathology as "white left."
white left
Now I'm going to be called a white hater, by the usual liberal low information types infesting WB, and they will get their dopamine hit, and the feeels will last about four minutes, and then they will want another hit.

Why should we even try to persuade them? Many are dedicated to their teachings and are rigid in their views and cannot tolerate criticism.

Brilliant comments!
This one connected with some of my own thinking about virtue signaling:
"Also, there is some research coming out now, that there is a dopamine hit every time a liberal virtue signals.  The higher brain functions are not there as a regulator, so the dopamine hit allows the more animalistic behaviors to come to the fore."
The good thing is, that since so much of the virtue signaling is emotional in origin, it falls apart when put into practice.  When it doesn't fall apart it pits one liberal group against the other.  I am seeing this more and more.
One of the examples I've been following was Evergreen College's racial stunt of denying whites to attend school for a day.  It looks like they are going to lose about 25% of their enrollment.   Now former Evergreen college state police chief is suing the school for $625,000 over its handling of the 2017 riots.
Other examples show Feminists fighting with open border advocates over the forced wearing of Burqas.  Some feminists are now protesting that male students (who decided to identify as women) are dominating women's sports.  Other feminists insist that women should be able to choose whether to go into combat or register for the draft whereas men should not be given the choice.
Sanctuary cities are dealing with an "unexpected" rise in homelessness.
Maxine Waters was warned by her fellow Democrats to stop encouraging people to publicly harass members of the Trump administration.  She has also said that she was sent by GOD to Stop Trump.   I guess she has a direct line.
Finally, who but a simple moron could possibly call for a universal guaranteed income for all.  To even start this argument we'd need to find an alien race in our galaxy who we could begin to tax heavily.

James, those are great examples.  
The older I get and the more I learn, the more I'm against universal suffrage voting.
There simply is a large portion of the electorate that should not be pulling the lever, and guiding civilization.  They are unqualified to run a lemonade stand, much less make life and death decisions.  
I think these people are born, not made.  They simply cannot help themselves because of their inherent brain wiring and brain chemistry.

There are zero references to scholars and such since Athens in 500 BC that recommend universal suffrage or its equivalent. The US system started off with only male landowners. Not even J. J. Rousseau or Locke or Franklin.............

Let us all remember what happened in Athens and other places when they let the low classes vote or be 'represented' as in Paris 1789. Let  us watch California crash in debt and crime as they build their political pyramid with imported poverty.
What everyone seems to miss or ignore is the salient fact that when people are given the vote they tend to vote money into their  pockets whenever possible thus massive debts and an economic crash. 
I would also imagine that protosimians do not have much of a prefrontal cortex so that they cannot be trained to do much more than grunt and grab.
