Even Barack Obama decked out as a 1776 Minuteman in a 1997 parade understood that symbols recalling a revolt against tyranny and the striving for liberty resonate.

WND excepted, there’s a lot of talk about jobs and the economy these days, but not enough about freedom. But what’s the good of a job in an America ruled as a dictatorship? Millions of Americans are distraught and frightened as their freedoms vanish one by one under Obama, who clearly views the presidency as a stepping stone to a tyrant’s throne.

To triumph, Republicans therefore need a sharpened dual focus on freedom and jobs. That means the GOP should throw overboard the enemies of liberty in their ranks and commit themselves to a solid platform of renaissance in America: freedom and jobs. If they backed those words up with sweeping proposals that generate as much freedom as jobs, they’d consign the liberal Democratic Party to the ashcan of history.
