A QUOTE TO REMEMBER!
A "Liberal Paradise" would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive health care, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only Law Enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does indeed exist .. It's called PRISON.
