Republicans amaze me. The other day, I saw Ron Paul, a candidate for the republican Presidential nomination; suggest that folk who get sick and have no medical insurance should be left to their own devices.
I heard former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY), say that senior citizens are greedy, because we want Social Security left alone.
How is it that a democratic government could be too large if it strives to keep its citizens healthy and its elderly independent? Then, it’s just the right size if it’s big enough to train and arm its young people and wage war around the globe with the help of overpaid mercenaries.
