Quote of the day, by John Hawkins:

We will never go back to the America that the Founding Fathers envisioned. We're talking about people who were profoundly distrustful of the federal government and believed in keeping it extremely weak and starved of funds. They wouldn't support Social Security, Medicare, or even the income tax. The Founders made the nerdiest Big L Libertarian you'll ever run into today seem like Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in comparison.

But they REALLY wouldn't support a perpetually standing army - the biggest government institution created since then - and all the wiretapping and domestic crap that goes with it.

The military industrial complex is far more dangerous to our civil liberties than social security.
