"What Liberals in both countries have forgotten is the philosophies of their political patron saints, Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill, who believed, respectively, in unfettered market forces and fettered government."
"Democracy means liberty much less than it means equality; democracy is infinitely more egalitarian than libertarian. Every victory for equality seemed to the man of 1900 a victory for liberty. He was not aware of the fact that it was first and foremost a victory for the state. From every victory for equality, each citizen could derive some advantages and personal satisfaction, but the real profit went only to the state... Totalitarian regimes are the most egalitarian of all: total equality in total slavery!"
In the U.S., Clinton -- and, yes, he's a great saxophone player and does a credible performance of Elvis Presley singing Don't be Cruel -- took every two-bit charitable deduction he could, even putting price-tags on his worn out underwear and other clothing. Why not just give old clothing away? Well, it's not the Liberal way, is it? Conservatives, I contend, do stand by their principles.

(Rest in peace, President Reagan. And thank you for all you've done.)
Hearing Mr. Mulroney at Reagan's funeral reminded me once again of what a strong Canadian sounds like and what we've lost here in the states as an ally and partner. I wish you success because your success is ours and ours is yours.
