Homo Republicanus

R. Clarke Cooper, head of the Log Cabin Republicans, said the “true definition of conservatism” is centered on “individual liberty and not having the government involved in your personal life.

“So there it is again. What do you mean by your “personal life”? A house burglar, operating entirely alone, under the cover of darkness, makes off with your family silver. Is this part of his personal life? If you catch him, what would you think if a helpful neighbor told you that he didnt think you should prosecute, and that while he personally was a deeply committed Catholic, his views on theft were his religious views, straight out of the catechism, and that our country was founded on separation of church and state? Would your schizo neighbor even slow you down? Would you even stop to argue with him?
