How to be a liberal

Not that you'd want to be one, but it's instructive to know how the other side operates.

Ignorance is an absolute must, but especially ignorance of three things: economics, human nature and all of recorded history. 
One has to be truly economically illiterate to believe that high taxes encourages productivity, that union-imposed labor regulations don't dis-incentivize hiring, that energy regulations don't raise prices on the poor and working class. 
Likewise, to be a liberal you must pretend that men and women are exactly alike in every respect and that communism produces the most happiness for the most people. 

The sad part is this ignorance is fostered through modern "education".
