We have a government whose incompetence seems to know no bounds, and whose hunger for power is now insatiable. We have a government who simply ignores the law and the Constitution when it does not suit them. We have a government that insists it knows better for us than we do for ourselves. So...what's their next stroke of unmitigated genius? http://cnsnews.com/news/article/69436 Hence the danger of socialized medicine: The rationale of "well, since I'm paying for your healthcare, I can tell you how to live your life" becomes a valid argument. Hence, the result: We have government looking over our shoulder, telling us how many crackers we can eat. I'm sure that Jefferson, Madison, and Franklin would be overjoyed to know that government will "look after us" cradle to grave. We might not be free, but by golly, we'll be safe.
