Will the real socialist please stand up?

Long-time Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee chair Charlie Meadows makes it clear that he is anti-freedom in the latest edition of OCPAC's newsletter.

How else is one to interpret his declaration that social conservatism should come first? How can social issues be managed politically except through legislation? How would legislating social conservative positions on such issues as abortion and homosexuality not proscribe freedom? Social conservatives have consistently proved that they are willing to use the power of government to take away the right of people to make their own decisions in such areas. Their advocacy of the use of government force to intervene in people's private lives places them squarely on the left - not the right.

Social conservatives are power-lusters whose pursuit of moral bureaucracy has contributed to the expansion of government every bit as much as socialism. In fact, I would say that they are socialists, themselves.
