If you favor the left end of the political spectrum, then you do not have to be:
Consistent, Cogent, Careful, or Clear
You can say what you “feel” with no consequences, but someone from the right end of the political spectrum is not only not allowed to have feelings, but they must provide at least 20 well documented reasons for whatever they say, and the left will still not believe them. The left denied that the I.R.S. discriminated against conservative organizations and persecuted them under Obama, but now the I.R.S. has apologized for just such actions. Any contrition from the left? No! Don’t look for it either.
The left is not pinned down to any dictionary definitions of words they use – the words they use mean whatever they want them to at the time they use them, and anyone from the right end of the political spectrum must define their terms, but the left will immediately ignore those definitions and twist them to their advantage.
The left never has to stay on subject. The moment they start to lose an argument, they are free to change the subject without defending their position or continuing to listen to their opponent’s cogent and well argued position.
The left has no need for standards, as life, morals, principles, values, laws etc. are fluid and always changing for them. They apply only to others, and not to themselves. In other words, the left can be as hypocritical as they please, and nobody can challenge them from the right in particular.
These are just a few of the advantages of being from the left.
