    I'm curious as to why. What about the government protecting the life, liberty, and property of its citizens do you find offensive?

    Would you rather that the government charged based upon the amount you wished to have protected? Something along the line of a life insurance policy? I have no objection to such a policy.

    What I find offensive is people who do not appreciate the land we live in and its people and their duly elected government. But they still remain put while moaning, whining and bitching about free choice.
