Prog-libs believe that "there is virtually no area of... life that excludes, or should exclude, government intervention."
No doubt. Political commissars, block watchers, children ratting out their parents for anti-social thoughts, and all...
But Jack, are you really advocating that conservatives "might also want to consider that this approach to politics has proven successful for the Obamas."
As in, are you seriously suggesting that conservatives should adopt the position that there is no division between politics and everything else in life? That government is the be-all, end-all of human existence - just like the prog-libs?
Jack Kerwick, you just earned a black mark in my book.
