Some people buy small animals they don't know how to take care of? Then ban them for everybody!!!
Some people don't have health care insurance? Then outlaw the entire existing system and institute Obamacare!!!
Some people tend to be a little obese? Then make taxes on unhealthy food so high nobody can buy it!!!
Don't like some people rudely blowing secondhand smoke? Then raise the price to $15.00 a pack for everybody!!!
Worried about global warming? Then drive all the coal and utility companies into bankruptcy and "neccessarily make everyone's electricity prices skyrocket!"
Why, oh why do liberals always try to kill a mosquito with a nuclear weapon?
Because their instincts are totalitarian to the core. But I truly wouldn't call them "liberals" or even "secular progressives". I, myself, considered myself "liberal", and was, until the liberal establishment lurched so far to the left that it left me standing in an empty field.
I was once a Democrat party officeholder and I learned firsthand how totalitarian the people now running the party really are. I think anyone who paid attention to the healthcare debacle couldn't have missed seeing it in action. They even eat their own.
