The difference goes down to a basic philosophy of life. I often add to the title of Democrat a list of other titles that apply (Liberal, Communist, Socialist, elites, leftist, progressives, RINO). They all base their values and priorities on a rejection of basic Judeo-Christian ideas about morality and truth. This came to mind when I was looking over some notes on a book. The author references Ronald Reagan.
“Communists according to Reagan ‘...had a philosophical stance that expressly made it impossible to assume their good faith.’” p. 22Believing Jews and real Christians base their behavior and choices on an awareness that there is a thing called truth and it does not change because you want it to. Modern New Agers, like so many of their predecessors, believe that the truth is whatever advances your cause and it can change in a heartbeat. We see this dichotomy in the #Metoo movement that ignores accusations against Keith Ellison and jumps on every rumor about Brett Kavanaugh. We see it in believing stories 35 years old by a Trump hater but rejecting any accusations against Bill Clinton. They have a double standard that cannot be trusted.
We need to assume that no Democrat (Liberal, Communist, Socialist, elites, leftist, progressives, RINO) is speaking in good faith. I am willing, intellectually, to admit there might be exceptions but I am still waiting to be surprised.
Remember, they lie. It is their nature.
