Conservative Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) is one of those principled, stiff-spined politicians that we on the right are always clamoring for. He stands on principle and doesn’t bend just because strange new political winds are blowing.
No tax, no policy, no regulation is ever "too much", in the view of entrenched central government. When massive government begins to feel above the "normal" people, we begin to see these attitudes take root. It seems to be a condition hard wired into the majority of people who aspire to dominate others. Government work is a natural extension of that personality who feels compelled to impose draconian belief system on neighbors, especially those who might dare object to such fealty.
