A Liberty Moment (National Radio Commentary / Salem-Townhall.com) December 12, 2014

Posted by daviddavenport in Op/Eds, Radio Commentaries.

A so-called disillusionment index shows that a record number of Americans—56 percent and rising—feel that the political and economic systems in the country are stacked against them.  A stunning two-thirds say the country is on the wrong track.

These messages reflect more than disappointment with just the economy or the President, suggesting a deeper sense that the American system is not meeting expectations.

May I submit that this is a “liberty moment”?—a time when conservatives can remake the case for less government and more individual liberty in the lives and businesses of people. Government has never been bigger, regulation has never been more intrusive, federal spending by any measure has never been larger and people are tiring under this weight.

Ronald Reagan made the case for less government and more liberty in the ’80s—and even Bill Clinton said in the ’90s that the era of big government is over.

We need political leaders who will seize the opportunity for a “liberty moment” in the 2010s.
