Liberal Meddling

April 29, 2002

Katherine Rotherham (letter, April 25) thinks that a drift to the right led by Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft of the Republican Party should be a wake-up call for our democracy. I think she's got it backward. The definition of "conservative" is a strict adherence to an original principle or philosophy. The definition of "liberal" is a moving away from an original principle or philosophy.

What conservatives in America want is a return to the original principles of our Constitution, which severely limits government's role in our lives. The truth is that the wake-up call to our democracy is the continual meddling and taking away of our freedoms that liberals are thrusting upon us.
