2. It's an excellent meme but should be corrected to...

"fewer cops." Just saying.

3. Good point.

If businesses don't need regulations, why do the rest of us need cops? Surely the 'invisible hand' of the law will ensure that we can police ourselves, right?

6. yep--leave preventing homosexuality and abortion to the invisible hand

isn't that the Republican position?

Maybe somebody needs to ask them how they decide which things need state intervention and which don't.

8. Surely one of the Gipper's most horrific utterances was "Government is the

problem." No, Gipper man, the problem is elected officials who use the power of their office to promote the welfare of special interests rather than the general welfare.
