Only Issue now Facing Americans is Freedom

Ms. Parker is correct. As government advances, liberty retreats. This ancient truth was recognized by our Founders when they designed a government of limited powers. But she neglected to list the many ways in which Democrats seek to limit our freedom. Here are a few. Democrats oppose free choice of schools, free exercise of religion, free speech, freedom to keep and bear arms, freedom of association, freedom to hold a job without joining a union, freedom to exploit natural resources, freedom to buy products we want, etc ad infinitum ad nauseum.
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.

No visual dominates the landscape...
