True, you still have butch T-shirts — “Don’t Tread On Me,” “These Colors Don’t Run” . . . In my own state, where the Democrats ran the board on election night, the “Live Free or Die” license plates look very nice when you see them all lined up in the parking lot of the Social Security office. But, in their view of the state and its largesse, there’s nothing very exceptional about Americans, except that they’re the last to get with the program.

In unrelated news, according to Gallup, 61% of liberals have a positive image of socialism.

Apropos of nothing: happy Veterans Day. Thank you to all of our wonderful military families who have sacrificed life, safety, and family for generations so that our system of freedom, liberty, and economic opportunity can be upheld safely for our children.

It’s in good hands.
