Our dictatorship doesn't depend on men with guns

but men with pens and pocket protectors. Men who fill out forms all day and who know where our permanent record is. Our rule is under the empire of data.

We are less worried about informers and more worried that a form that we filled out wasn't done the right way or was lost along the way. The American headquarters of the KGB isn't in a law enforcement building, it's in the EPA and the IRS and a thousand other bureaucratic institutions. This is the kind of tyranny that the left understands and loves. -- Sultan Knish: Troops in the Streets

Your Say

Which president signed an executive order to start the EPA? Please list his political party as well, because limited government people would want to know that.

It has all been forecast, with the same consummate skill that forecast the storm surge of Sandy. Has the warning been heeded any better?

Alexis De Tocqueville: How Democracy Can Become Tyranny

It is not possible to write a better or more exact description of our pickle. Do we have any chance of getting out of it?

Potsie: Nixon. He also abolished the gold standard. His political party was RINO. In his defense, he was anti-Communist, at a time when Communists took over the Democrat party.

Fat Man... What about when the communists took over the republican party?

There has not been a small government republican since...?

Reagan doubled the funding to the department of education, increased the size of government by 250,000 employees, increased federal spending by over 50%. Bush spent like crazy, grew government, gave us the patriot act, the TSA, banned the 100 watt bulb to name a few. Bush was the one to put an end to the space shuttle, that reduces spending so that is good thing but the end of the government run space program seems to upset many republicans. Thankfully private industry has taken over space flight.

The republican party like the democratic party are all about growing government, spending like crazy and reducing freedom. Most republicans don't give a damn about small government or reducing spending, they just want big government, big spending, and less freedom as long as a republican is president.

Potsie: There is medicine that will help to solve your problems. Go to see a doctor. Please I beg of you.

Bill Jones: Sadly, medicine won't help you.

Fat man, if you think the republican party is about small government, you are the one in need of medication... or rather a good dose of reality.

No regulation without representation.

Potsie has a grip. The GOP now stands for the Greater Oppressive Party; just look at the pussies heading it:: Tear Man in the House and Nutless McConnell in the Senate.

That bunch pushed Romney, the man beaten by the chump that Obama beat.

Vote Libertarian TEA Party.
