Do-gooders in government

In the video clip below, Senator Rand Paul speaks for all Americans with the capacity for rational thought. However, he missed a great opportunity when Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Kathleen Hogan said, "I can help you find a toilet that works." He should have responded with, "That's just the point, we need the government to get out of our lives - to stop micromanaging everything we do! We don't need a federal bureaucrat to 'help us find a toilet that works'! We need Congress and bureaucrats to stop banning 'a toilet that works'!"

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed." — Ayn Rand, 1905-1982 (Atlas Shrugged)
The bottom line, however, it the voters are idiots because it is the ignorant, selfish, and irrational voters put these people in power.

New campaign slogan: "If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you're not a racist, you'll have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot."
