Liberal elites and political correctness prevent America from facing its problems.

Have you ever wanted to say something but in the end decided against it because you were afraid that your comment could be interpreted as being politically incorrect? That was a mistake. Political correctness is an invention of the liberal elites of the Far Left. All political correctness does is prevent the sort of discussion that can move America forward.

The Political Correctness Police, including the media and some politicians, forbid people from speaking freely about a continually growing list of topics, and bludgeon people who violate their rules.

For example, when appearing on TV to discuss how marriage is a long-standing tradition that shouldn’t be changed, the author compared gays to others that engage in non-traditional sexual relationships, including pedophiles.

Immediately, the secular progressive media seized on the comment, twisting the author’s words and silencing what could have been a useful debate on marriage.

Meanwhile, elites create entitlement programs for less fortunate groups of people in order to solidify their positions of power in the media or politics. Yet these liberal policies have done little to improve the lives of those unfortunate people in our society. Black communities in particular have been destroyed by these handouts, while continuing to support those that provide them.

Martin Luther King Jr. and other black leaders understood this danger and supported self-reliance and self-help. Unlike the liberal elites, they believed that all people are capable of helping themselves.
