I guess that the talking heads on talk radio are trying to get people to become conservatives. Yet, their rhetoric is so deceptive. They keep saying that conservatives are for individual liberty and less government involvement in people’s lives. I think that there should be a caveat or a more narrow definition. The conservatives might be for more economic freedom and deregulation, but they are certainly not for individual freedom at the personal level. I ask you – Who would be more likely to oppose marijuana consumption, prostitution, gay civil unions, gamboling, etc? The conservatives and liberals: Neither side supports freedom to any significantly greater degree than does the other. One might support more economic freedom but the side that does so makes up for it by supporting the illegalization of many personal choices. Yet, to speak with such analytical clarity would make for boring drawn-out conversation, wouldn’t it?
