Our Different Lenses
Liberals believe everyone should have a fair shot and the reality is some people are disadvantaged and aren’t given a fair shot like most people are, so they feel they deserve a leg up.
Now, I sympathize with that however, the liberal answer would be to lower standards or make it possible so those people can “succeed” via affirmative action. They will make them feel like victims, or some scary boogey man is out there trying to keep them down.
The conservative answer is: “Don’t live your life defeated as if you’re a victim! You live in America, the land of opportunity, the land where people who don’t speak English come here and get better grades and lead better lives than the people who are born here and speak the lingo! If they can do it, so can you! You got dealt a hard hand at life, but if you dream it, you can do it! Now get up and work and make it happen! Feel free to ask for help if you need it, but remember: Only YOU can make this happen for YOU. Let nothing get in your way!”
