    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The people on the right who chirp incessantly about tyranny wouldn't know actual tyranny if it threw them in a gulag.

    The premise of your post shows how authoritarian you are.

    You got enough guns to put a mother****er in a Gulag? Oh yeah that's right you are afraid of guns...

    History repeats itself and all historical atrocities are open to again happen - we're a feared nation no because of the military complex but because the armed citizens.... Most countries that salivate over our resources have either banned guns or restricted them.... Furthermore, no one will be forced into a cave - that will just be the place you go to find shelter when the **** hits the fan. You advocates for tyranny will confine yourselves.

    They are little pocket statists to the man. These guys trip over themselves to hand over more power to the govt, and mock anyone who would preserve the means of securing freedom.
    Administered Freedom, Inquisitorial Tolerance, and Equality by Command...coercion disguised as concern-bit its always about control-both sides know it, but one thinks its for our own good.

    Apparently the point of my post soared straight over Nick's head.

    I'm not "advocating tyranny," I'm saying that you guys who insist that what we live under today is "tyranny" are off the deep end. This isn't close to tyranny in any way.

    Shut up and watch this testimony-listen to what a weaponized IRS does to its citizens.

    How is the govt FORCING people to buy private insurance under penalty of law not tyranny?

    The same way that government forcing people to obey speed limits isn't tyranny.

    The individual mandate is an extension of government authority. That's definitely true. But to call it "tyranny" is ludicrous.

    You do realize I have heard your POV about 1,000 times yet every time another one of you posts it as you believe it's unique....

    Your posts are hardly unique and hardly philosophical...

    I understand your position 10-fold... You just make the same arguments every other progressive makes.

    Maybe that is just a collectivist problem? ya think?

    Ever notice how you get the same replies to your posts because you bumble the same ****?

    You call yourself a progressive but never like to see a discussion/argument or debate progress.
