This version of the 12 steps is an adaptation from the original 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and is intended for general use with any addictive or dysfunctional liberal behavior. This is only to address a particular addictive or dysfunctional behavior within the way we want to run our daily lives and countries. These steps are meant to be worked sequentially as a process of getting rid of addictive behaviors and growing in freedom and happiness:

Step 1 – We admited we were powerless over our addiction to meddle with other people´s lives and their monies – that our lives had become unmanageable

Step 2 – Came to believe that a Power greater than big government; that We are the ones who should decide how to govern our personal lives which restores us to sanity 

Step 3 – Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God–who gave us sovereign right to rule our own lives not other people 

Step 4 – Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves and found that being spineless and pandering does not lead to godliness

Step 5 – Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs: Socialism and Communism is against our sovereign right as human beings and potential.

Step 6 – Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of all the brainwashed character we have acquired from media, liberal professors and bitter idiots.

Step 7 – Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings especially insulting true Conservatives

Step 8 – Made a list of all persons we had harmed, brainwashed, controlled and became willing to make amends to them all

Step 9 – Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

Step 10 – Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

Step 11 – Sought through study of true Conservatism, prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying and doing only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out

Step 12 – Having had a spiritual, mental, psychological and ideological awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs

    Nicely done.

    Why is it that those who think you need recovery are always the ones who need it themselves?

    Social democracies, as all of Europe, Australia, Canada, and Japan are (to start the list), are very different from some Americans’ ideas of what socialism and liberalism is.

    For example, both Forbes and The Economist declared Denmark, among the most socialist of European countries, to have the best climate for business in the world. Why? Because they realized that to take care of yourself, you have to take decent care of those around you as well.

    Why do you feel the need to equate American liberalism with Communism? I don’t see the connection. It seems reasonable to me for the country to provide a decent framework for Individuals to stand on and them climb to whatever heights that their creativity can take them. By framework I mean that all of our citizens should know that basic needs are affordable no matter what their income. How can someone reach their full potential if they have to worry if they will be able to pay for a doctor visit. How can they create new businesses if they can’t find a job to pay them a living wage? That seems like something Jesus would want, aren’t we to be judged by how we treat the least fortunate.
    No one wants the government to take care of every aspect of their life.

    djcnor…. I am Canadian. Are you?

    I am also a right winger. I am not sure what you mean by calling us a social democracy and how it stands as any shining example of how Canada is as a country to live in.

    We are in debt up to our eyeballs… just like the U.S. Except of course our most right wing province, Alberta (aka Texas-North) with a balanced provincial budget and flat provincial income tax of 10% and no sales tax.

    And this was before the big run up in oil prices that Alberta would have gained even more ground on.

    My province also has a right-wing government. Our Prime Minister is also a right wing Conservative.

    Apart from our healthcare systems in most provinces, I cannot see how we are too much closer to centre than the U.S.

    I’m an American, but I’ve also lived in Copenhageh, Krakow, and for the last 4 years, the UK.

    Canada is usually included on the lists of social democracies. Here’s Wiki on it:

    In addition to haviing universal healthcare, the general safety net that Canada offers its citizens is much more extensive and preventive of suffering than the US’s safety net.

    Here’s a minimal Wiki on it:

    In general, the “conservatives” of social democratic countries are far to the left of the US’s Democrats. For example, France’s conservatives favor policies that would be considered socialist by most American conservatives.

    Pure black comedy.
    You do have a problem with liberals don’t you?
    They are not going away to please you.
