Please, Mr. President, save us from ourselves!
President Obama, today: “I promise you, we will pass reform by the end of this year because the American people need it.” (Emphasis added.)
Never mind that the American people don’t want it.
The government, you see, knows what’s best for us. We’re far, far too stupid to figure these things out for ourselves.
Which is why I’m glad subversives like Geoff are finally turning themselves in. How dare they advocate for freedom when the government – and only the government – knows what’s in our best interest?
Oh, and by the way, the American people don’t really need it, either.
