This is a thread for discussion of all those ways the big government types try to herd us into their corrals by making us fear some overhyped threat that only they can save us all from. I suppose we could have opened this with Anthropogenic Global Warming, but it’s kind of late for that now.
When they talk like this, you know they know they’re starting to lose the argument.
Now, as to actual present dangers, give me civil liberties or give me (a remote probability of) death.
Oh, did you know people are being forced to wear armbands in Montana? And they’ve been shutting down church services in Mississippi. More local than state in both cases, but tyranny all the same.
But there are plenty of states crossing the line in the US. I’ll say it again: I prefer individual rights to states’ rights.
