Dems, let's talk about "freedom" ...!

Last week during l'affaire Arlen Specter, I heard some Democrat talking head/jackass say on CNN that Specter had joined the party of "individual freedom." My right temple immediately started throbbing.

For most Democrats, individual freedom means one thing: unfettered access to an abortion. As a general rule, Dems don't believe in school choice, allowing folks to have more control over their Social Security "contributions," citizen-empowering tax reform (flat tax, Fair Tax, etc.), individual-controlled Health Savings Accounts ... I could go on, and on, and on, and on.

That said, the Mercatus Center at George Mason University has ranked states based on their level of "personal freedom." The most un-free states, naturally, are all controlled by Democrats -- Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Washington, Hawaii, Maryland, California, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and New York.

Go fuckin' figure.
