Sheesh! We're already dumbed-down to the point of imbicility. We already live in a command and control economy. Just take a look at agri-business. Dept. of Ag., tells farmers what/what not to plant, along with how much or little. And here we chirp and squeek about some odd billions thrown away here or there? It's all paper and called "fiat" for a reason. But let's try to keep the illusion alive that we as individuals (and our vote) make a difference shall we.
