Equality in l
Through the freedom of speech and assembly, and unfortunately a civil war, slavery was abolished, and women’s rights have overcome much of the suppression put in place by the culture of misguided monarchs through the ages.
A large and cumbersome government increases the drag on a free economy as it reduces the opportunities for its citizens to pursue their own ambitions to keep and share their property through productive and efficient efforts they control. The proof is in the current condition of our country and the amount of people receiving government assistance, government jobs and the lack of jobs in the free market.
If equality were indeed the objective of today’s politicians then liberty, not redistribution would be the method of choice for achieving it.
