"Society is full of busybody do-gooders and navel-gazing morons who are happily eating up a larger and larger share of the nation’s once- productive capital. And, as this group grows and grows, they eventually shift from a disheartened minority down on their luck to taking full control of Congress. That’s when the taxpayer checkbooks really come out. Initiatives that begin as “state services” invariably end up making us servants to the state. And, in the end, voters only have themselves to blame."
