George Will on Comedy Central

A little too much Colbert and not enough Will, but good nonetheless. Will is asked the difference between Liberals and Conservatives. His answer:

The difference is between the truth and confusion, basically. A slightly longer answer is that the competing values are between freedom and equality at all times. Conservatives stand to favor freedom, and are willing to accept inequalities of outcome from a free market. Liberals tend to favor equality of outcome and are willing to sacrifice and circumscribe freedom in order to get it.

A note: We have followed our fellow Cubs fan since the late 80's. When asked to find a writer to emulate in an undergrad creative writing class, we chose George Will. The dividends from that decision pay to this day.
