Well they are . . . sort of . . . when it comes to sex, pornography, obscenity and abortion. (and for some of them . . . drugs.)
Just about everything else needs to be controlled.
Including what we eat.
We would be rationed to four modest portions of meat a week and one liter of milk per week. Think about that for a second. A liter is just over a quart of milk. If one considers cooking etc. how long would a quart of milk last you?
This has nothing to do with saving the earth, though they will hysterically scream that it does. It's all about controlling other peoples' lives. This will help end global warming.
Most Democrats do not support this but the people who want this control the leadership of the Democratic Party. This WILL eventually come to America if Obama gains power, even IF he does not intend to do so at the moment. It's a simple matter of one thing leading to another and the government does not have the self-control to stop expanding it's control over lives and property.
The earth is cooling right now, probably on schedule, in response to solar activity. My suspicion is that they know full well that a global cooling has started, due to natural causes, but they need to gain control quickly so that they can claim credit for what nature is doing, thus justify their power grab.
Al Gore! You first! Lead by example!
