what are the morals of the left?

when I used to be a liberal it was because I thought their values included:

open minded
tolerant
welcoming of reasoned debate
liking people in general

they got none of that now.

so how can morals shift to the left if the left has no morals?

If you go far enough left you become right. THEN your morals are shit.

The morals of the Left are anti-morals and they can continue shifting by becoming even more evil. This is described here:

---------------------------------
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who substitute darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who substitute bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own opinion
and clever in their own sight.
---------------------------------
Isaiah 5:20-21

What? I think we have great morals. We champion everything your Christ said to. We even have his characteristic of not suffering fools.

I will lay on you a smack-down Donald Rumsfeld put on a reporter that asked some long gotcha type question at one of his press briefings. To paraphrase him, "You used impeccable logic to reach an illogical conclusion because your initial premise is incorrect."

The left has morals. The right pretends to follow some stupid laws written by a bunch ancient of goat-herders.
Thanks from Sabcat
