Is it too obvious to point out that while we’re stuck in the middle of a foreign war that has been justified in terms of bringing freedom to the Iraqi people, we’re simultaneously gearing up to deny freedom to American citizens here at home? Is it just too trite to say that we need to put our own house in order before we embark on all this overseas adventurism? Is that why the Democratic party aren’t saying it, or is it just that they’re chickenshit?
Bah. I don’t want to hear another fuckin’ word from people, especially conservatives, about “freedom” and “liberty” and “opportunity” until they can explain to me why they spend so much time trying to restrict people’s freedom.
