  •  Let's look at Rome. (3+ / 0-)

    Military all over the world to protect Rome's economic interests? Check. The tax burden moved away from the wealthy to those of lesser means? Check.

    Pagan Rome is one of the cornerstones that western culture is built on, and like most things, there's some good and some bad.

    It is funny that they keep accusing us of "selfishness" for wanting freedom. Selfishness is one of their core principles. For all their making a boogeyman of "collectivism", we're far more individualistic than they are. If you see an art car, it's more likely to be owned by a liberal than a conservative. Conservatives are more likely to live in suburbs where all the houses are the same. What conservatives have is a hive mind: individuality disturbs them.

    The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
