72. Because several visitors who mention the word "liberty" . . .
. . . usually reveal themselves, and their use of the word, as dog-whistles for "I hate Progressives/Liberals/Democrats".

I'm generally kind of suspect of founding-father worshippers who, more often than not, say they hate both parties while spending 90% of political discussion bashing one party while not-so-mysteriously leaving the truly damaging party (the Republicans) alone.

And at least you understand, unlike some even on this site, that yes, the alternative WOULD very much have been far, far worse.
