Those who value freedom above everything but faith – and even practicing our faith requires us to be free – recognize we are at a crossroads. The current administration embraced a political platform in 2020 that is, hands down, the most anti-freedom, extreme document of its kind in U. S. history.
There is a correlation between the size, power, and role of government and the amount of personal freedom we have. The relationship is direct, clear, and inverse. A nation that is more leftist is less free. A country with a more powerful government has less freedom. A nation that is more conservative, with a smaller government, is freer. “Democratic Socialism,” like “Free Slavery,” is a contradiction in terms. There is no such thing. It is that simple.
