Granted, she’s not the only one, but Rep. Susan Lynn of Tennessee not only understands the basis for our laws–she is able to articulate it.
I’ll not take her entire post, but here are the main points she makes:
- The purpose of our government is to secure our rights.
- Our government cannot take away or infringe on our rights.
- Rights are of no cost to anyone else
- America is about freedom.
While one may quibble with the details, the thrust of her piece is right on. One wonders if the fact that Rep. Lynn has a degree in economics has something to do with her understanding of the issues we face? In any case, read the whole piece.
