A new diagnosis: liberals are "nuts" by Sybil Sage

Dr. Lyle Rossiter, a psychologist who's practiced for thirty-five years, in a book titled, The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, maintains that liberalism is a psychological disorder. He asserts that liberals, "rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

Does Dr. Rossiter accept medical insurance? Oh, maybe it's not an issue since most Americans can't afford it. Liberals are nuts?!!

He characterizes the liberal agenda as preying on weakness and insecurities in the population by "rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government."

Has Dr. Rossiter treated any of Americans who feel we'd been tricked into going to war by an administration with its own agenda? Liberals are nuts?!!

Rossiter characterizes modern liberals as "whining about imaginary villains," depicting them as neurotic. Were we not told by Bush & co., "You're either with us or against us?" Wasn't this conservative government repeatedly insisting they've been saving us from being attacked? Liberals are nuts?!!

His premise is that caring about others is infantilizing. If liberal can be seen as a psychological disturbance, would not the conservative agenda qualify as narcissistic? And if liberals are nuts, perhaps it's a response to conservative policies.
