Olasky on Sam Adams...Christian (Failed) Brewmaster

From Townhall:

And yet, Adams in his political writings emphasized not Isaiah but the understanding that "security of right and property is the great end of government." He argued that "the religion and public liberty of a people are so intimately connected, that their interests are interwoven and cannot exist separately." He worked hard to convince Christians and anti-tax libertarians that they were fighting the same battle.

As Olasky argues, if Huck could dump the Edwardsian populism and nanny state c--p, he could do much better but since he won't, he must lose. If he goes on to win, I won't have been a supporter but I'll be in the tavern.
