Awesome, guys. I appreciate

Awesome, guys. I appreciate the comments and criticism. I understand I get a little unfocused and scatterbrained at points; I guess it's because I have so much to say and I wind up going off-topic because of that. I'm still trying to figure out the balance between depth of discussion and keeping the article at a manageable length.

I've already learned so much just from the few comments you all left. About the "classical" liberal point: I attempted to include the point that what used to be a liberal is now known as a libertarian, but I guess I felt it started taking me in yet another direction so I cut it. When I used the term "liberal," I simply wished to use the term and definition as most people hear it on TV, etc.

As far as the slavery part is concerned, yes I admit it does come off a bit strong :( You made the point "Above all, it is our responsibility to take control of our labor and direct it toward worthy ends. We can not rely on government to do that for us, nor can it stop us from doing it." That was actually what I was trying to get at, but you worded it so much more eloquently and accurately than I could. For that, I thank you.

Looks like I've got some editing to do!

Thanks again, everyone.
