Progressives keep saying that they value “Equality” over Freedom, right?

by Skip November 6, 2013

Democrats Screw Most Vulnerable Again

by Steve MacDonald October 8, 2012

A question that has long ago been answered is can government lift people up?   The answer is no.  It can only hold them down.  When it holds them all down the Liberals call this equality and history has yet to provide one example where the kind of planned economy Democrats favor ever did any better […]
