No. Collectivism of the Obama brand cannot preserve Individual Liberty

by Skip January 22, 2013

Over at Townhall was a piece on a phrase from Obama’s 2nd Inaugural Address (a paeon to Progressivism – once again “repurposing language” to sound as if he agree with the Founding Fathers but absolutely up ending the original intent): “Preserving our individual liberties,” the President said, “ultimately requires collective action.” A phrase worthy of […]

The Ideological Left’s Equivalent of a Gold-Digging Trophy-Wife

by Steve MacDonald January 22, 2013
