Democrats favor equality of results over individual liberty. These are mutually exclusive conditions, and cannot exist together. The US was founded on the basis of equality of opportunity so that individual liberty could be achieved. Insistence on equality of outcome is why Democrats must necessarily not practice the “Rule of Law.” If there is “Rule of Law,” then laws cannot be applied in the unequal manner necessary to achieve equality of outcome. As F. A. Hayek reasoned, a state that enforces equality of outcome cannot have rule of law, and inevitably leads to a totalitarian state. History shows that Hayek was correct, but socialists and Democrats like Obama argue that it will be different under them. (Communists like Lenin, Stalin and Castro frankly acknowledge that they intend to have a totalitarian state.) Here are some similar thoughts from a more talented writer than me.
