“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms.

Steadfastly Avoiding the Tough Questions

It’s as predictable as the sun coming up every morning that in any discussion, liberals will always try to move it away from whether it is right or wrong.
