"Individual liberty requires limited government."
Congressman Paul Ryan uttered those words last night during his response to the President's State of the Union Address.
His whole speech, with its emphasis on smaller government, individual freedom and free markets reflected the views of a man who actually believed in conservatism.
What a refreshing change from the juvenile partisan hackery that passes for political debate in this country.
Of course, Prime Minister Harper used to sound like Ryan.
I sure wish he would talk like that again.
