Liberals are in fact imposing their collectivist myths & idolatrous laws on the rest of us (their idol being Big Government). If Christians were as bad as Islamic states, you'd be afraid to offer any criticism of Christianity, for fear of being shot. The people afraid of being shot in this world today are most often Christians -- and the ones doing the shooting are most often Muslims, or collectivists.
Government gives nothing it does not first take from us. It's as if I take your credit card, use it to buy you gifts, & then expect you to say "thank you!". And then when you get mad at the size of your credit card bill (large because of my spending), I self-righteously criticize you for being greedy & not paying your fair share. Now THAT would be WEASEL-Y.
If Jesus was a socialist, this story would have been His big chance to reveal Himself as the First Marxist (Matt 21:33-45): "33 "Now listen to this story. A certain landowner planted a vineyard, built a wall around it, dug a pit for pressing out the grape juice, and built a lookout tower. Then he leased the vineyard to tenant farmers and moved to another country. 34 At the time of the grape harvest he sent his servants to collect his share of the crop. 35 But the farmers grabbed his servants, beat one, killed one, and stoned another. 36 So the landowner sent a larger group of his servants to collect for him, but the results were the same. 37 "Finally, the owner sent his son, thinking, 'Surely they will respect my son.' 38 "But when the farmers saw his son coming, they said to one another, 'Here comes the heir to this estate. Come on, let's kill him and get the estate for ourselves!' 39 So they grabbed him, took him out of the vineyard, and murdered him. 40 "When the owner of the vineyard returns," Jesus asked, "what do you think he will do to those farmers?" 41 The religious leaders replied, "He will put the wicked men to a horrible death and lease the vineyard to others who will give him his share of the crop after each harvest." 42 Then Jesus asked them, "Didn't you ever read this in the Scriptures? 'The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous to see.' 43 What I mean is that the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation that will produce the proper fruit. 44 Anyone who stumbles over that stone will be broken to pieces, and it will crush anyone on whom it falls. " 45 When the leading priests and Pharisees heard Jesus, they realized he was pointing at them -- that they were the farmers in his story." The landowner (the "capitalist") is the victim here; the tenant farmers (the "socialist revolutionaries") are the villains.

Liberals continually claim to be logical & rational. It's what they attempt to substitute for morality & virtue. To wit: "only god is eternal" & "so there are no eternal truths"

Not "misunderstood" -- understood & despised, because we don't enable the lie of Liberalism. Not "mistreated" -- oppressed, & we are just the 1st targets. The end game of Liberalism is this: The few, high-&-mighty, holier-than-thou, Liberals have the power to do whatever they want; the rest of us suffer what we must.

It seems to me that taking the 5th, in a blanket, preemptive way, as Ms Lerner did, amounts to a confession. She basically said "I've done nothing wrong, but I'm not answering ANY questions, I'm taking the 5th." ANY questions? What that means is, that any conceivable question she could be asked about political oppression by the IRS, her answer would tend to incriminate her. EVERYTHING she knows about the abuse of power by the IRS, in the section of which she was the manager, would incriminate. How can that be, if she is anything but utterly guilty? Best regards,

We? What "we" would that be? Far left, secularist authoritarian power-addicts? Who have commandeered the political system to take over the schools to "pollute the minds of the chirrun" with their own propaganda ...

So, then the only way for the schools to be free of "indoctrination" is for them to not be controlled by people with any one viewpoint. In America today, the vast majority of students are in schools controlled by politicians. It is THEIR views with which most all children are being indoctrinated. No wonder so many believe that being dependent on politicians is a good thing, a veritable right. The only solution to this problem is: freedom of education -- schools run by a diversity of people & interests. Just like freedom of the press & religion, we can't have politicians dominating the schools.

Mr. Tatro, With all due respect, if you truly believed what you wrote, you'd not have written it. If America is really that far gone, & you realized it, you would have been stockpiling weapons & supplies in your cabin in a remote valley somewhere, not writing this gloom-n-doom article. Best regards,
