Robert, not so. If we rialeze that liberals detest a democratic Republic under the rule of constitutional law with a free market economy and a tradition based on Judeo-Christian principles their logic becomes clearer.Combine that with the concept that liberals have unresolved deep seated fears from childhood regarding security and safety it becomes even clearer. Remember that they would be terrified by Franklin’s view that “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Of course that presupposes that many of them would know who Franklin was.
