"In case you need a book to tell you what you already know, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, Jr., M.D., wrote a book about modern liberalism's irrationality being the product of psychopathology: a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world's political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty:

"So extravagant are the patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that characterize the liberal mind that its relentless protests and demands become understandable only as disorders of the psyche." The Liberal Mind reveals the madness of the modern liberal for what it is: a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world's political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.

This makes complete sense and explains the Liberal thinking and behavior that defies any other explanation."

"Liberals clinically mad, concludes top psychiatrist
Eminent doctor makes case leftist ideology is a mental disorder
WND

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book,“The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.”“Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to “the vast right-wing conspiracy.”

For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and his Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says.“A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

* creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
* satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
* augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
* rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says.“When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

Can't afford anymore republicans? Spoken like a true sheep. You do realize of course, that nine out of the last 11 governors have been liberal democrats? With the exception of maybe Bob Straub. Yes, he was a democrat, but he certainly was no liberal idiot.
The responsibility for the mess Oregon is in clearly rests on the shoulders of the democrat leadership of the past 40 years.
There's no denying that - unless you are a sheep, unable to follow anything but your party bumper sticker jingoisms.
For the record - I'm an independent.

You do realize that 9 out of the last 11 governors have been dem liberals right? ANd if there is any one party to blame it is them, right?

You can thank liberal policies statewide for the fact that we have to pay just to park on the side of the road here.

You can thank liberal policies for running off business and family wage jobs.

You can thank liberal policies for perpetuating a PERS system that treats government union employees like royalty while homeless children live in cardboard huts and broken down campers.

Aren't you exaggerating! This state takes care if children! It was the deregulation of the banking industry and housing bubble this state and the other 49 are hurting! Forget! Oh yeah it happened with republican majority but Clinton signing off! We didn't need two wars to get not any safer for your republican/democrat military industrial complex! Public workers in Oregon have crappy 401k's so ignorant people like you are happy that everyone has corporate crappy retirement! If you didn't want the rich to have the majority of wealth instead of everyone share wealth we could take care of everyone! Thus the name Dr Dirty!

I'm guessing you are unemployed. Or more likely retired after long service as a government employee.

That's it isn't it? Fed at the trough and now you complain about the people who worked to fill that trough for your fat, early retired ass.

All the derogatory rhetoric talk, trough feeding liberal! According to you anyone who had success working a long career are no good! You hide behind independent, closet republican and bash democrats with no solution because your gutless and don't know history or what is affecting our lives!! Ohh
Damn liberal trough feeders! We need welfare Reform to separate the truly needy for healthcare and subsistence to not waste tax dollars but at least there are resources something Kitzhaber helped! Liked him better the first time around Oregons environment is better! But resources are limited! With a crappy state tax system! We've tied up our ability to grow economically with poor measures! But their is no nicer state to live in! You find poor children in every state with worst 3rd world conditions than Oregon! I don't
believe it was just because of democratic governors! Be careful about change! You might get something a lot worse! My answers would never be used! I'm a native Oregonion! Not gonna move away!
