Wherein political power and citizen responsibility are considered.

Just as Obamacare has nothing to do with health, and cap and trade has nothing to do with so-called global warming, anti-gun laws have nothing to do with saving children’s lives.

It’s just another opportunity for the left to centralize power.[1]

There is no empirical evidence that totalitarian systems do anything but cause misery and actual slaughter of human beings. There is no evidence that the left can cite that proves that small amounts of power ceded to government are ever returned to the people. Power is being centralized. There is no institutional check on this centralization. A majority of the American electorate is corrupt.

Power never comes back to the people once it is lost. Leftists know this and knowingly and willingly desire the control over others of which Mr. Avrech warns. Our pleasant, caring, generous, highly-educated, decent neighbors hide behind the belief that caring about others justifies anything done under that banner and they deny their catastrophic actions. But it's willful blindness, a concept well established in U.S. criminal law that doesn't permit criminal defendants to avoid criminal responsibility by pretending – in the face of dead-cow-in-the-living-room evidence – that they know nothing.

A related doctrine of the law is that people intend the natural consequences of their acts. It can cut a little harshly at times but it allows prosecutors to prosecute speeding tickets without having to prove specific intent to speed. It's hard to do when, for example, there's no passenger in the car willing to testify that their wife, the driver, announced that she was now going to exceed the speed limit. Millions of people have gotten traffic tickets and I'm guessing 98% of the drivers intended to speed.

Millions of moronic Americans voted for Obama and the radical leftist Democrat Party despite clear, photographic evidence even, of Obama's contempt for the United States, his willing association with communists and terrorists, and desire to create an unconstitutional domestic police force with more funding than that provided to the Defense Department.

Americans have freely and willingly voted for unlimited government, replete with an explicit affirmation of an unconstitutional police state, and spat on the graves of all those who perished in the last century in the Soviet, Chinese communist, North Korean, Khmer Rouge, Cuban, and German National Socialist holocausts.

Outraged denial or "I had no idea" just don't cut it.
