Individual liberty, freedom and private property — including the most precious right of free speech – are not frozen in place forever. Government will always test its limits and watch how we respond.
The Republican Party is dying from an internal contradiction. On the one hand, it claims to want freedom and individual rights. On the other hand, it embraces fundamentalist religion as the basis for civilization.
