“Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.“ Paine, Thomas Common Sense-1776
After the infiltration of a Nikita Khrushchev speech by the Israeli Mossad, and the information obtained was digested by the world, the American Communist Party imploded, sending out shrapnel in heavy direction. The New Left was organized as a direct result, and, my friends, after nearly fifty years of tireless protests, canvassing, filling our universities with Marxist professors, and paying off their constituents in the form of welfare, they may be able to declare victory.

The health factor means nothing if people choose to smoke. You would think that the Feds would have learned from the time of Prohibition that Americans don’t respond well to edicts originating in
But, Joyce, you are all over the place on this one. Not really. I have pointed out events that are grossly mismanaged, and are part of a much larger agenda that has been in place since the early sixties. It could be argued that this agenda has its origins in the days of the New Deal. We are experiencing increased control by a central government and the steady and rapid decline of state sovereignty. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.....?
The Republicans have thrown principle out the window for the security of elect ability, not unlike Senator Specter of
