This guy is about the only reason (IMHO) that Hillary Clinton has a dog's show of being elected as a senator for the great state of NY.

I used this as a sig for a short time (maybe i inherited from this list?)

"Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do and how you do it."

"State authority must provide for peace and order, and peace and order in turn must conversely make possible the existence of state authority. Within these two poles all life must now revolve... Ideas of 'freedom', mostly of a misunderstood nature, inject themselves into the state conceptions of these circles".
