George Will Quote

“The primary goal of collectivism -- of socialism in Europe and contemporary liberalism in America -- is to enlarge governmental supervision of individuals' lives. This is done in the name of equality.   People are to be conscripted into one large cohort, everyone equal (although not equal in status or power to the governing class) in their status as wards of a self-aggrandizing government.”

Very accurate.

'Contemporary Liberalism' includes both the establishment Democrats and Republicans. Too few Republicans truly represent a 'republican' form of government -- most of these government supervision programs were established under the direction of Republican presidents and Congress's. Classic liberalism has long since been abandoned by both parties, and Libertarians are considered 'kooks' by both parties. The kooks are in fact sitting in every seat of power in every branch of government -- 'stooges' is a more accurate term -- and the People: dupes. Amerika, home of the knave.

"to enlarge governmental supervision of individuals' lives"
That's rich, coming from a member of the party that can't seem to keep itself out of my bedroom or my vagina.
