    Never heard of this guy until now. This is a PERFECT example of what I posted about earlier, about GOP candidates having “foot in mouth” disease. The point he was probably trying to make is “Slave owners probably thought they took good care of their property and didn’t really stop to think that they were infringing on the freedom of those people. They probably took the opinion that slaves were too simple to see after themselves. Heck, they probably saw themselves as benevolent caretakers doing God’s work! But they were wrong. They made their slaves dependent, took away their souls and made them second-class humans. Today’s welfare state is just as damaging, just as demeaning, just as dangerous to the freedom of the people ensnared in it’s grip.” I did that on the fly, probably could have been more articulate, but I did a WAY better job than Brown.
