How do people who claim they don't want less government interference in their personal lives vote for Democrats, when that party's policies interfere with what you say, eat, drink, ingest, spend, save and use to defend yourself ?
If the ”Bush tax cuts” were only for the rich, then why is there so much debate about letting then expire? Once people grasp the truth, then they might understand that they were lied to by President Obama. Of course, I know most won't accept that. Facts no longer matter.
We all have one thing in common, a desire to be loved and accepted.
People will use the power you give them. Power surrendered can easily turn to abuse. This is as true in relationships as it in in government.
