There are certainly other dependent variables than govt. control vs. personal freedom, but I believe it is the most accurate and logical dichotomy we can use to explain political thought and action.
For a person who claims to be an educated man, it is strange that you don't have the knowledge necessary to pass a basic poly-sci course.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
