Good article, John. It seems a lot of people in here don't want freedom any more than the progressives do. The Republicans pay lip service to limited government but seem to have no trouble asking for more of it when it's their own special interests. In that regard, the progressives are arguably more honest (though they are hardly honest themselves).
"Limited government" should mean *limited* government. Domestically, at least, the government should be a referee, not a player. That works both ways, not just for the other guys.
