Well Scott, I agree with you on the euro nanny state.
But as a poli sci major, I must correct one thing.
We are NOT a democracy of any sort. We are a Constitutional Republic. There is a major difference, but when the progressives succeeded in pushing through the 17th amendment, the lines got really fuzzy.
So I don’t fault you for thinking we are some kind of democracy, the propaganda machine is on full press mode to make the whole of the US think we are. I even hear pundits who should know better making that error so you are in good company!
Ha, right you are! I guess I should brush up on my own political science and US History!
I guess we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic who adhere to the principles of democracy, at least in theory if not always in practice; However, the European model is being aped by the left, and the Republic is being left behind.
Good for you for knowing your facts so well. ;)
