Why is it wrong? Because we in American used to VALUE freedom and liberty. These are separate Nature and/or God given (if you still believe in one) values which cannot be taken and stolen by a govt. without a crime having been committed by the very act itself.
It is also wrong because when decisions are made on political bases, merit and virtue fall by the wayside as money and power decide how a govt. will make decisions and take actions.
Why can't the GOP find a powerful spokesman for this. What is THEIR PATHETIC PROBLEM?
