Hillary: Government Cannot and Should Not Control Any Individual's Life By Pete Winn May 16, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told an assemblage of human rights and civil society activists gathered at the State Department Wednesday that government cannot and should not control the lives of individuals.
(T)o make the case for civil society is really quite simple because government cannot and should not control any individuals life tell you what to do, what not to do, Clinton said, taking part in a Global Dialogue of Civil Society.
Clinton said that any sustainable society must have three legs to stand on: an accountable government, a free-market economy, and civil society.

It's not too late for a Clinton/Wasserman-Schultz ticket, ya know?
But it is too late to be the first gay POTUS...shame.
.....so she’s going to run against Obama?
If this surprises you, raise your hand.
Everything else should be under government control, especially their earnings and property.
... or replace bumblin Joe Biden.
Unless, of course, the individual lives are unwanted. Then it is dandy to kill them with tax dollars.
How can people look you straight in the face and tell you a lie—when they know, that you know, that it’s a lie.
the C'toons are up to something and I am thinking - really thinking since Obizmal is tanking, Soros is taking a time out and sending in the subs...
