'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Morally superior liberals

Almost all of the pathologies that confront this nation today are the responsibility of liberals.

• Who perpetrated and perpetuated a welfare system that has destroyed the black family? Before the Great Society, blacks were married at a slightly higher rate than whites. Today, approximately 70 percent of black children are born out of wedlock.

• Who has all but eviscerated discipline from schools and families?

• Who routinely practices mercy to the guilty? Mercy to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.

• Who preaches moral relativism? Without absolutes of right and wrong, a civilization will not last.

The answer to all of these is today's liberals/progressives.

If liberals were to look honestly and objectively at the disasters they have fostered, it would destroy their entire narrative — that they are self-appointed, morally superior saviors rescuing the human race. This narrative is not one that is easily let go.

For me, I prefer freedom as opposed to a morally superior ideology that is methodically destroying it.
