How much easier would life be in this world if so many religious people weren’t colorblind to hypocrisy?

    They could claim that government is bad when it helps people other than themselves, but good when it punishes people other than themselves.

    But even that sort of argument shows that “less government” is a hollow slogan.

    Bingo. I was just thinking yesterday that Republican politicians that run on “not a Washington insider” and “small government” must laugh themselves all the way to the bank as soon as they get elected. Considering that Republicans are all about government imposing more rules in order to solidify their favored traditions, uphold their standards of Purity, and maintain security (often through massive military spending), the very idea that they could support “less government” is non-sensical on its face. No, they just want a government that doesn’t regulate anything involving business. They are fine with government being massive in regards to anything and everything else.

    It’s pretty simple really; female reproductive rights-bad, drugs to make a dude’s stiffy diamond hard and last longer-good (and necessary). Penis enlargement surgery should be covered by medicare, it’s a crime.

    Let’s not overlook the laws & regs that prevent competitors into any market the big boy industrialists want. The (R) actively work to prevent new market entrants.
