I opened my morning Internet issue of the Daily Caller this morning and couldn't help but grin at two articles the editors had placed side by side..
On the left was a video of foreign policy scholar Michael Ledeen warning that even small regulations on tobacco and guns slowly and quietly erode the freedoms granted American citizens in the nation's founding documents.
He added: “It’s exactly what Tocqueville forecast, exactly the way he forecast
it,” Ledeen said. “Millions of tiny little regulations, and we’re not
going to notice them when they come in one-by-one. We’re even going to
welcome them, and then one day we’re going to wake and find that we’re
all tied down, we can’t move at all.”
