Every place you look today, there is someone trying to control your actions. Seat-belt laws, dancing laws, liquor laws, smoking laws, gay marriage, jaywalking — all of which have a place, and again no place. Far too many Republicans in the state are increasing government intervention into our lives. When the self-righteous, self-appointed Republican guardians are not dreaming up ways to control your life, they are protecting the thieves that live among them.

By the way, I'm a Republican.
