Pick a side

Good history lesson from Mr. Ronald Pestritto in the WSJ today. People in the news keep talking about the "middle ground" and compromising. The way I see it, there are two options. Either you believe that individual freedom exists as a God given right, and thus each of us is free to pursue whatever we wish as long as we do not infringe on another person's right to do the same, or you believe, as Teddy Roosevelt put it:

"It is not enough," that a fortune was "gained without doing damage to the community. We should permit it to be gained only so long as the gaining represents benefit to the community."

And thus everything a person does is only good so long as it benefits everyone else.

Pick a side.

"So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth." Revelation 3:16
