Liberals - What Standards?

Syndicated talk radio host Chris Plante often says on his show "if it weren't for double-standards then liberals would have no standards at all."

Unfortunately, Plante is right. The increasingly hostile far-left is becoming more and more brazen about their disdain for the rule of law and common standards. This is deeply troubling because even young children are capable of understanding the benefits of rules and common standards.

When a group of kids get together and form a club or play a game, they usually agree on a set of "club rules" or the rules of the game before they begin playing. These commonly agreed upon rules prevent cheating and preserve a sense of fairness and equity.

By agreeing on "the rules," kids understand that the winner of the game they are playing will have won on merit and, in the case of the club, all of those agreeing to be members of the club agree to forfeit absolute control over their decisions within the club for a collective decision making process defined by the agreed upon process.

If kids can agree that rules and standards matter, why can't liberals do the same? How can we continue to move forward as an ideologically-diverse yet ultimately cohesive and respectful nation when one side of this perpetual ideological struggle writes one set of "rules" for itself, and another set of rules for others?
