Pajamas Media » Dude, Where’s My Freedom?

When governments overstep their boundaries and end up trampling on individual liberties we create the tyranny that will suffocate everyone. As Ben Franklin once said, “they who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” The government is and has offered the false promise of greater security but all that one has to trade are one's and those of your neighbor's liberty. The opiate offered by the leviathan such as retirement security through Social Security and medicare, health security through the mess that Obamacare will create, and a host of other offerings to the something-for-nothing crowd that are more than willing to trade their neighbor's liberty for their own illusionary gains.

As a blog, an excellent exercise in rationality, 'respect' as Ali G says.But all rationality, by its nature, requires a median view point. You have a lot of occult unposted fans, but the zealot in your political blogging viewpoint, would be better served by adopting a more balanced political stance. The facts should be left for us to judge, with your comment or two to consider...

Everything that I write comes from my core beliefs. I do not feel compelled to seek a medium viewpoint to exercise from but start from my core beliefs. If that is zealotry, then so be it.

And thanks for your well reasoned comment.
