There are some conservatives who maintain that liberals don't believe in anything.
I beg to disagree.
They are fervent believers in one thing:
They believe that a force even higher than the New York Times has put them on Earth and entitled them to rule in the temples of government, ordering the lives of everyone else on Earth, daily from cradle to grave.
Furthermore, they believe everyone else is entitled to the benefit of their wisdom.
So let it be written; so let it be done. Amen.
