Deep down, liberals and conservatives don’t want freedom

“The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog.”

— Gilbert Keith Chesterton
(1874-1936) British essayist, critic, poet, and novelist

[Just look at the nanny state created by Democrats and Republicans. The one thing they can agree on is that you don’t have the right to ingest what you please.]
