Quote of the Day

From QandO:

The purpose of government, as any libertarian will tell you, is to protect people from force and fraud. It is not there to criminalize behavior it disapproves of unless that behavior also involves force or fraud. It is there to protect the liberty of its people (and liberty includes the right to do stupid and possibly, self-destructive things).

Beyond that, government becomes an instrument of oppression as it curtails liberty.

I hope people will realize that banning trans fats is going to lead to much more horrible and invasive restrictions before it is too late.

I am almost totally sure they won't.
