I’m a liberal professor and my conservative students terrify me.
Jason McCormick

You don’t seem to understand what “liberal” means. Don’t you understand that our government is one founded on the principles of secular liberalism?

It is a government of consent (“We the people” from the Constitution)…

…formed by individuals who acknowledge that humans have natural rights (“[men are endowed with] unalienable Rights…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men” from the Declaration of Independence).

Haven’t you read Hobbes? Locke? Adams? Jefferson? The Federalist Papers?

Your homework is to re-read these writers. Come back and re-write this article.
