    1. Sunstein should never be allowed anywhere near power. He is far too fond of it.

    2. The government, far from banning conspiracy theorizing, should covertly sponsor it. That way, whenever you show up for the CT theorists meetings the government is already tracking you, because you are showing up to a government meeting.

    Government should never ban free speech.

    Amazing how far down the country has gone where there are people eager to push to take away all the things that made it great.

    Agreed...

    Amazing! Tax people who put forward conspiracy theories!

    Any rate, that aside, what do you think? Should the government ban conspiracy theorizing?
    What if a person gets taxed for thinking about a conspiracy, but then it is later proven to be true? Does that person get his money back?

    Sunstine doesn't have a chance in hell of being confirmed by a Republican congress.

    I don't believe that the 1st Amendment will let that happen.
