First comes freedom

Susan Schlegel

Okay, I admit it. IâÄôm one of those people President Barack Obama criticized as âÄúbitter Americans who cling to their guns and their religion.âÄù I cherish all my freedoms, including the freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. Now, the president would like me to surrender the freedom to make decisions about my own health care. Government-controlled health care is his long-term goal. He admitted this in an interview a few years ago. I will never support this idea, whether it costs me more money or less money, because we canâÄôt put a price tag on freedom.
