According to wikipedia, “Classical liberalism is a political philosophy in which primary emphasis is placed on securing the freedom of the individual by limiting the power of the government.” So I’m a liberal. Who knew? I am not, however a liberal as the term is commonly applied in American politics today. I do not believe in securing the safety of the individual by increasing the power of the government. No, I’m not exaggerating for effect. Check out the clip (not magazine) from the David Parkman Show. The host says . . .
“There is about one gun per person in the United States so of course police legitimately need to be able to wield more force than the citizens they’re policing.” Hear that? It’s the Founding Fathers rolling in their graves. It’s also the sound of a modern day American liberal validating tyranny while claiming that the government isn’t tyrannical, doesn’t want to be tyrannical and even if it was, gun owners could do nothing about it.
Liberals…progressives…no matter what you call them, no matter how they sugarcoat their “common sense” fascist fantasies, these are the sworn enemies of liberty.
