And, contrary to Bush's declaration in debate #3, liberty is not a gift from the almighty. It's a value that's earned and guarded, often at great price. But it's no surprise. Most people on the left I've encountered throughout my whole life seem to have missed that earliest of parental lessons: "money doesn't grow on trees." Neither do any of our core values, including liberty or security. (via Burgess-Jackson)
