It seems that most politicians believe they are there to protect us from ourselves. No smoking bans (I hate smoking & try to avoid places where smoking occurs), banning WalMart because they dare to not have unions, bailing out everybody & thing, supplying converter boxes & then delaying the implementation; in my opinion are not valid government pursuits. Free choice has been given us by God why can't government follow suit? Free to succeed & free to fail!
POLITICIAN, (n) An eel in the fundamental mud upon which the superstructure of organized society is reared. When we wriggles [sic] he mistakes the agitation of his tail for the trembling of the edifice. As compared with the statesman, he suffers the disadvantage of being alive.
