Liddick hits his target

Morgan Liddick’s editorial of June 9 was on target for a number of reasons. He made clear some difficult concepts, and that’s a great talent. First, he rightfully rebutted Hillary Clinton’s characterization of America as a democracy. We’re not a democracy, and the Founders didn’t intend for us to be. I have never recited the Pledge of Allegiance as “and to the democracy for which we stand.” He cites Clinton’s question of what her opponents fear in democracy. I might ask the same of her. Twice the citizens of California voted to make marriage between a man and a woman, and her allies ran squalling to the least democratic branch of government, the judiciary, to get their way. Now THAT is a fear of democracy.

Liddick also does a fine job of explaining the perils of the great god DIVERSITY. It is noteworthy that diversity advocates are more about form than function. They celebrate outward diversity only, choosing to judge people by the color of their skin and not by the content of their character. Dr. King must be rolling over in his grave. Diversity is good in that we can learn from the successes and failures of others. However, the most important aspect of diversity is diversity of thought, and it is not respected at all.

Thank you Morgan Liddick, and keep up the fine work.
