(Akiit.com) Liberals seek rulers; conservatives seek freedom. This is why we cannot win arguments with them. This is why they will never “get it,” wake up, see the light or convert. What they call success, we call failure. They cannot win unless we lose. This is why they think you hate them when you disagree with them, because they hate you when they disagree with you.

Plus, a black man was elected to the presidency twice. Jason Riley, a fellow at... [Read more of this review]
