Joan Swirsky commentary – Hail 2010: The Year of the Citizen!
Tuesday, 19 January 2010
U.S. Citizen Scott Brown
As writer Carol Platt Liebau has written: “Certainly, 2009 was a dark and disheartening year for lovers of economic and individual liberty. But if next year shapes up in accordance with current trends, the tide is about to change. With a growing recognition of the preciousness (and fragility) of liberty and a renewed appreciation of our founding principles, America is poised for a rebirth of freedom. Hail 2010: The Year of the Citizen.”

The goal of Leftists like Obama is to deconstruct America, the better to reconstruct it into their utopian fantasy of a perfect world in which no one ever has hurt feelings, loses a ballgame, is unfavorably compared to anyone else, experiences the green-eyed monster of envy, is restrained by society’s mores, is burdened by adult decision-making, or encounters a conflict that cannot be resolved by “talk.”
