Political correctness is eroding freedom in America
My wife and I escaped from behind the Iron Curtain nearly 50 years ago. The life we had there was comfortable: no unemployment, free and great health care, free daycare centers, very early retirement, etc. Life was without stress - well, only if you practiced "political correctness."
