Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

Don’t people understand the priciples this country was founded upon??

on January 20, 2008

Our founding fathers brought forth the ideal of federalism, and it has proved to be a successful endeavor in the history of the world. So why are Americans today voting in the primaries for candidates who not only don’t have federalist platforms, but quite the opposite? Of course it isn’t surprising that the Democrats, who are slowly shifting towards socialism, are voting for candidates who want to take our country in that socialistic direction, but what saddens me is seeing my fellow Republicans going in that same direction. We have before us two excellent conservatives in the race, Duncan Hunter and Fred Thompson, and neither are receiving the attention nor the votes they deserve.

I just don’t get it, and I certainly don’t like it.
