Yes, Mr. Bookman, we on the right are paranoid. Unlike many of you who have ushered into power the liberal left, we distinctly remember the Jimmy Carter presidency and the economy that resulted. We distinctly remember the utter failure of socialistic and Marxist economic policies in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, and we understand the immutable laws of economic supply and demand.
We distinctly remember the attempts by the liberal left to deny us constitutional rights such as freedom of religion in the marketplace of ideas, and gun ownership. We are paranoid and justifiably so because we have already lived the political, social and economic ideas of the liberal left and we find them frighteningly harmful to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
