If you want to know what is “wrong” with America…..

Consider this post from Andrew Klavan

“If government’s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg after telling New Yorkers what they can and can’t have to drink.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men…” Thomas Jefferson, risking his life to make generations free from Napoleonic buffoons like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

What a stark contrast. Collectivism vs Invidualism, The Nanny State vs Liberty. A fool, Bloomberg, who puts ALL faith in government vs a wise man, Jefferson, who puts faith in Natural Rights.
