    The argument that a frog in cool water doesn’t notice when it’s slowly brought to a boil – is no better.
    Death by a thousand small, individually insignificant cuts isn’t a believable traitorous tactic.
    Voting for candidates that pay nothing more than lip service to constitutional limits and authority is

    1. It’s so discouraging. I’m a firm believer in capitalism, and yet it’s the profit motive (monetary or otherwise) that causes people, corporations, and government to run off the rails.

You can’t speak about something one day and then in a weeks time just decide that it’s best to go ahead and do the complete opposite.
