A Reflection On The ACA

 Once the government forced us to buy something we were ruined. We can now be forced to buy anything because there is a precedent.

She might not have been a very good novelist, but she was a visionary.

Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion — when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed.

--Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand bids fair as an Old Testament prophet. I'm sure plenty of people rolled their eyes and said, "There goes crazy old Jeremiah again."
