Something to chew on

Surprisingly I'm not talking about the latest object to finds its way into Calvin's mouth! I read this quote yesterday in an article by Norman Podhoretz in yesterday's Wall Street Journal and thought it was worth sharing. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree:

"The great issue between the two political communities is how they feel about the nature of American society. With all exceptions duly noted, I think it fair to say that what liberals mainly see when they look at this country is injustice and oppression of every kind - economic, social and political. By sharp contrast, conservatives see a nation shaped by a complex of traditions, principles and institutions that has afforded more freedom and, even factoring in periodic economic downturns, more prosperity to more of its citizens than in any society in human history. It follows that what liberals believe needs to be changed or discarded - and apologized for to other nations - is precisely what conservatives are dedicated to preserving, reinvigorating and proudly defending against attack."

Great quote. I totally believe he has it correct. May God have mercy on this country and the direction we are running full force.
