Liberal and Free

June 20, 2004

Why are so many people against liberals? If we weren't a nation of liberals we would still be under the kings and queens of England. We the people would not be able to vote for those who oversee the day-to-day business of government. Only men who owned land could vote. We would still have legal slavery. We would not be allowed to worship as we want. We would not have had the technical advances that allow us to have the relatively easy and healthy lives that we now have. We could not write letters to the editor and hold public discussions that disagree with the government and current thought.
