The liberal ideology is based on a philosophy that liberty and equality must exist. In theory, it touches on many parts of humanity. In reality, liberalism is nothing more than a concocted theory that edicts a False Positive Paradox and ultimately casts a net of disaster for everything in its wake.
“The false positive paradox is a statistical result where false positive tests are more probable than true positive tests, occurring when the overall population has a low incidence of a condition and the incidence rate is lower than the false positive rate.”

In layman terms, a false positive is a result that indicates a given condition is present when it is not. An example of a false positive in the real world would be if a particular test designed to detect cancer returns a positive result but the person does not have cancer. The False Positive theorem may have been borrowed to prove a point; nevertheless, it accurately delineates the emanation when liberal policies are thrown into the wild.
Liberalism is a political, economic, and cultural movement that emphasizes the rights and freedoms of the individual above all else. The ideology’s premise and ultimate success are heavily weighed on a self-regulated government.
On the surface, liberalism seems plausible to bring about fairness and equality to all. Yet many liberal polices end up with less than desirable results at best, to almost certain catastrophic aftermath as the norm. Of course, anytime government capitalization is used as the main dish rather than a condiment (intended purpose), failure and calamity will ensue.

What is a good example of a liberal policy producing a false positive?
In San Francisco, the self-appointed mecca of liberalism, the black population today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city’s total population has grown. Why? Severe restrictions on building of housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city. The same thing has happened in a number of other California communities dominated by liberals. This is a very real example of how a liberal policy can eradicate an otherwise thriving economy.
How about an example of a false positive on a macro scale?

Minimum wage increase sure sounds good on the surface. Barack Obama recently called on Congress to raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour from $7.25, and to automatically adjust it with inflation, a move aimed at increasing the earnings of millions of cooks, janitors, aides to the elderly, and other low-wage workers. Many would welcome an increase, seen as a way of helping the less privileged gain a bigger piece of the American pie and improve the lives of their family. But with an obvious benefit comes a huge price tag with detrimental ramifications to the aggregate.
The reality of a minimum wage increase proposed by Barack Obama would eliminate at least 467,000 jobs at a time when the country already has a 7.9% unemployment rate. In the past, raising the minimum wage has not helped reduce unemployment. From 1997 to 2007 in fact, there was no increase in the minimum wage; and overall unemployment stayed below 5% while youth unemployment (ages 16-24) remained around 10%.
Critics worry that raising the minimum wage would only place this already fragile economy on life support. This very fact is why Obama is now pushing for a wage increase, which we will see why later.
There are numerous reasons why liberal policies fail, but the absence of sound economic principles has always been at the forefront. Liberals may talk a good game on race, gender, gay rights, and scores of other important cultural issues. However it’s rare to witness a liberal be able to articulate economics, corporate hegemony, and global financial capitalism in a coherent manner.
The Socialist-in-Chief is a prime example of impudent ignorance of basic economic principles — taking his severely flawed ideologue totally out of the equation, he is simply inept to make any major economic decision based solely on the merits of his knowledge. Making matters worse, 90% of his cabinet has never even worked in a private sector job. Hence, our national debt topped $16 trillion in late 2012 and is expected to exceed $20 trillion before we can run this nut out of office in 2016!
Moreover, the liberal foundation and principles do not preclude the existence of successful economic policies. Liberal policies incentivize failure, create a hostile business environment, burden businesses with excessive taxation, and stifle creativity. Fact: a lean private sector will always outperform a stagnate government.
Even Karl Marx noted in the Communist Manifesto that capitalism is a great “engine of growth,” a proposition few informed observers of the economic scene would disagree with. Yet liberals continue to hinge their very existence on governmental frameworks and rely heavily on government stimulus at every turn.
But there’s something even more grim and disturbing coming our way, and it’s about to play out in our very own backyard.
Between the 2008 election and the 2012 presidential campaign, Barack Hussein Obama was seen by some as a “centrist” president (I saw him only as a flat out far-left liberal), pushing his left-of-center agenda for the “good of our country.” Post 2012 election, however, brought about a much liberated, more vengeful Obama onto the scene. He was now free to act out his fantasies on the world’s largest stage and show his true socialist colors — nobody and nothing was going to stop him now. He would now be able to jockey past those pesky little checks and balances that the Constitution put in place explicitly for this situation and jam any policy right down our throats at any time. He has total freedom to execute his abominable scam. And that’s precisely what he is doing.
Well, if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it is a duck.
The Socialist-in-Chief is now free to gut our beloved free market system and take liberalism to a whole new level. All under the guise of a “president for the people,” armed with the unabridged version of the Cloward-Piven strategy acting as his guide every step of the way.
Before socialism is able to function on its own, in true unadulterated form, Obama must first break down every major economic pillar of our country. Ensuring the death of capitalism, he will then “blow up the bridge” behind him in grand “Bridge Over River Kwai” fashion to eliminate the possibility of our country ever prospering again under the free market system. Pure evil.
In other words, Alinsky-in-Chief is now playing out the economic destruction of our country, all in order to allow his socialist framework to cure and amalgamate into every economic and cultural fabric, replacing the free market that has been in existence for over 230 years. Scary, huh? It should be, because this exact scenario is unfolding right before our very eyes. Well, for those who can see past their entitlement piggy bank anyway.
One must never forget where Obama came from to truly understand his evil. He was brought up on extreme anti-American tutelage beginning in his early childhood, extending through his adulthood. Either his father, Barack Obama Sr. or communist extraordinaire Frank Marshall Davis was right there during the Tyranny-in-Chief’s developmental years to help shape his warp but very predictable viewpoints. Marxism may be the bedrock of his now methodical ways but is now a mere sidelight in his planned destruction of the United States. It is this same strategy that is now playing out in his second term.
To liberals, Obama’s policies may be seen as equal and just, when in fact he’s laying out the red carpet in preparation for what lies ahead, the economic jihad of a free country — the Grand False Positive. God help us.
