The Freedom the Government Gives Me

Joshua Holland has a wonderful essay at Alternet today. I wish I’d written it. It says simply and beautifully what I have long been trying to say. It shows clearly how rather than take away our freedoms, it is the government which provides and protects our freedoms. I’ll say no more, because you should read Holland’s essay. It’ll only take a few minutes. It is the political message I would like to see put out there. If someone really pushed this message, I don’t care what they called it or what party they were in, they’d have my vote.


About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
