I’m Not Sure

You know there are times when I write out posts and delete them before I can even click the publish button. The reason is the same reason I winced a little after reading this post from the very knowledgeable, Dennis DiClaudio.

Without even clicking through the link in his post, I was already certain that when Ron Paul said Santorum was liberal, he was implying that by definition, liberals usually dictate what people should do, and conservatives have a pretend history of letting people make decisions on their own.

But, then again, maybe I’m just showing my age and acute knowledge of purported ideological definitions. Indeed, maybe the real irony isn’t that Ron Paul called Santorum liberal, but that the GOP continues to purports a self-determinist-government-out-of-the-individual’s-life paradigm while only having one presidential candidate who thinks that way.
