You hit the nail on the head. One of my issues with big government is that it sees everything as an opportunity to gain power and control, both left and right. Used to be conservatives really wanted less government interference in people's lives. Now all they want is to force their ideas down people's throats. The left has always been all about big brother knowing better than you and telling you what to do for your own good. We need to understand what the founding fathers fought for and see how we can put their ideas in to effect in today's society.
