Only Issue now Facing Americans is Freedom

I like this blogger, but she is completely wrong in telling us that we have two choices--Dems and Repubs--that will give us freedom. Nothing could be further from the truth. Let's be honest: Bush II gave us wiretapping in a huge way. Obama is continuing it. The truth is that neither the Dems nor the establishment Repubs will give us freedom--both will do everything they can to take more and more away from us. The ONLY thing that will give us more freedom is a return to states' rights--something none of the candidates are advocating. Both Romney and Obama are focused on increasing fed control and increasing the fed budget and continuing to deficit spend for the next 10 years. Someone needs to take the kool aid bottle from her lips.
The political parties throw a lot of glitz at us with their made-for-TV spectaculars, which we call conventions.

But the bottom line defining the choice facing Americans this year is stark and clear, and these conventions provide no new insights or information.

If you think we’re struggling because we don’t have enough government, then the Democrats are the party for you. If you think the point of government is to protect individual freedom, and the problem is it has gone way beyond that, then Republicans are the party for you.
