Contradiction glaring

October 6, 2012 Letters to the Editor

Lois Larsen, in her Oct. 3 letter to the editor, astutely identifies a glaring contradiction in both major parties’ platforms.

Contrary to both Democrats’ and Republicans’ assertions, liberty is a plenum and no dichotomy can exist between economic and social freedoms.

A woman’s right to her own body is as important as a business owner’s right to profit.

This artificial division of freedom has left true advocates of liberty without a party that fully speaks for them.
