Well with 60% of you obese, 25% of teens not physically fit to join the military, and spawning the first generation to have a shorter lifespan than their parents, what do you all expect? It’s quite apparent your not capable of taking care of yourselves, so someone has to do it. Isn’t that what your after anyway, I think they call it the nanny nation today, and I frankly must agree!
In a Social Contract state, as opposed to a European-style Divine Right state, there are some things that are none of the government’s business. Very often, the U.S. government uses something simple and beneficial to set a legal precedent, and then uses the precedent to get away with something that they would never have gotten away with without the precedent. For example, the IRS at one time started estimating the incomes of prostitutes and drug dealers, and charging them taxes based on that estimate, with the burden of proof on the prostitutes/drug dealers that they did NOT earn the income. Very few had a problem with that, but a couple of years later, the IRS used the precedent to estimate tip income from waitstaff and cab drivers, with the burden of proof on the waitstaff and cab drivers if the estimate was too high, to prove that they did NOT earn the income.
