That's your problem: the wrong criterion of judgment. Their intentions
don't mean a damned thing, it's the results that matter. Good intentions
are no excuse for criminal behavior. When the /actual results/ of
big government are death and poverty, I don't care whether they're "out
to get me" or not; they got me.
