Thanks decimon! This could easily be this week's "The Framers" topic for GGG. ;') Alexis de Tocqueville ping!
...there is, nevertheless, a deep-seated European instinct that says the United States might be all right if it would only tweak its attitude towards healthcare, or gun control or the death penalty. But, of course, it would not exactly be all right - it would just be Britain with bigger portions and better weather... This is after all, the land that gave us prohibition and then invented organised crime to get around it. Just adding to the catalog, not sending a general distribution.
To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.

(The 2nd Amendment follows right behind the 1st because some people are hard of hearing.)
This wasn’t for any of your categories but just, I think, a pleasant read.
