The hippy political movement was an anti-establishment force that was organized by anti-war college students. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was the first presidential candidate supported by the hippies and George McGovern was the last major hippy supported candidate in 1972.
During the 70s, the hippies grew up and became yuppies and supported moderate mainstream candidates like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.
"The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday predicted the budget deficit will rise to $1.08 trillion in 2012.
CBO also projected the jobless rate would rise to 8.9 percent by the end of 2012, and to 9.2 percent in 2013."
Yet the liberal hippy will still vote for obama, enen though Obama accomplished none of his goals but socialist healthcare. But that must be enough. A pure example of Liberal Hippy Politics.
It is really kind of beautiful isn't it?
Broadening the view to the national level as the democrats policies were severely revolted against by the largest change of power in history. This is demonstrated in the sweep by republicans in the House of Representatives. Yet, Liberal Hippy democratic progressives still reelect Pelosi as their leader. Make the connection that Pelosi originates from the heart of Liberal Hippy Politics in no other than San Francisco.
Liberal hippy politics is still very much alive in its place of origin; and embraced by the majority of democrats.
Point in fact that the hippy movement was centered on San Francisco California in the 60’s. Keep in mind the fact that the momentum occurred from resulting ideology centered on LSD and a “tune in and drop out” frame of mind. Now the hippy liberalism has evolved but not changed and the essence of the skew quote is demonstrated in modern day California and the national democratic party.
California has an enormous debt caused by hippy liberal politics. Californian hippy liberals understand that this ideology of enormous spending cannot sustain itself and “Change” must occur. Given the nature of a “hypocrite liberal”, they see only one solution. This is to elect the same and even bigger spending progressives into office. This is demonstrated in the recent elections as not one incumbent seat was lost.
Remember in this definition "Hippy" is short for "Hypocrite".
