Does the United States still support the universal yearning for freedom and liberty? If so, we are missing a historic opportunity to do so. Why?
"Tens of thousands of government opponents packed Iran's main Islamic prayer sermon Friday, chanting "freedom, freedom" and other slogans as their top clerical backer Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani delivered a sermon bluntly criticizing the country's leadership over the crackdown on election protests. Outside, police and pro-government Basiji militiamen fired tear gas and charges thousands of protesters who chanted "death to the dictator" and called on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to resign. Dozens were arrested, piled in trucks and taken away, witnesses said."
When in the course of human events . . .
It would appear that the current political class in power prefers ever-increasing statist control over freedom and liberty.
