What is LIBERTY ?

Liberty is to be understood and exercised in the context of self-restraint. It cannot be linked to “not hurting” anyone in a Libertarian sense. Few behaviors exist without hurting someone. We often must decide who will be hurt the least. Example: It hurts the ability to raise children as Christians when society teaches (and forces them to learn in school) that homosexuality is just another lifestyle. Our tax dollars are wasted on this rubbish. Roughly two percent of people are homosexuals. The rest of us are not. We need to “not hurt” the 98% because that’s a virtuous decision and because it directly benefits the majority. The tail must not wag the dog.

Recall that the Framers were moral men. They understood that NO society can survive as a FREE society without virtue, because self-restraint is an ESSENTIAL prerequisite for self-government. Evidence in hand, The John Adams quote cited below:

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” — John Adams, US diplomat & politician
