As usual, the great folks at ReasonTV take a logical, revealing and eye-roll-inducing look at dogma. This time, they decided to probe exactly how “pro-choice” some attendees of the Democratic National Convention really are.
When it comes to abortion, their position is clear and unequivocal: Pro-choice all the way! When it comes to just about anything else, not so much. Such is the mindset of the bossy, statist set who value government’s ability to control our lives — for the greater good, you see (as long as they happen to agree with the aims) — over the value of everyone else’s liberty.
That these folks actually believe they cherish natural rights and liberty is … well … kinda scary.
