Just wanted to drop a line and say how much I agree with your 1/21 article about personal responsibility. Living in the St. Louis area I don't get the smaller town common sense in my local newspaper that the lucky people in Sikeston do in theirs.
Being responsible for your deeds and well being is not only good for society but essential for the individual. There is nothing more satisfying in this world than striving for a goal and achieving it. Liberalism robs the individual of this opportunity by stealing the chance to do things for yourself and creating the sense of self worth. In a way, it steals a persons soul.
