George Will said this long before either Barack Obama or John McCain were picked as their respective parties candidates, but I think it’s true regardless.  This election is a choice between liberty and equality

When you boil everything down to it’s simplest terms, conservative vs. liberal, republican vs.  democrat, ect, it ends up looking a lot like McCain would prefer less equality, but more liberty and freedom, while Obama would prefer more equality, but less liberty and freedom.  Just an observation.
