In my many years of covering politics, I’ve noticed a pattern in the liberal thought process. A pattern that guides our friends in the Democrat party on every conceivable political platform or life choice.

It’s led to one inescapable observation – liberals always try to do what makes them feel good about themselves, but are completely incapable of thinking ahead more than one step at a time.

Ponder that for a moment. Take abortion as an example.

A woman has an unwanted pregnancy. They want to fix that problem, because it makes them feel good and righteous, so they demand abortion access cloaked in the guise of ‘reproductive rights.’ They’ve solved one problem, but are unable to think to the next step – how those ‘reproductive rights’ affect the baby. Not only are they unable to think about the repercussions of abortion on that child (death), they can’t even understand the child is a living human being.

Another example – transgender bathroom access. Liberals want to help the transgendered individual feel good about themselves – a noble cause – so what can they do? Grant them access to any bathroom they choose, of course. They are happy to have helped, but compartmentalize that happiness by ignoring the repercussions of having men going into women’s bathrooms, or using the same bathrooms as children.

They can’t think two steps ahead.

The following cartoon illustrates this concept perfectly when it comes to illegal immigration. Here again, we have a situation where bleeding hearts want to help those who were brought here illegally, through no fault of their own.

But guess who that hurts?
