As babies is how government treats society because those that hold that position act as nannies that the child runs to for help. Most Americans ARE babies and have asked government to be their nannies. Grow up America and realize what you have is what you asked for.

Censorship, prohibition, mandatory government health care (sometimes referred to as Health Care Reform) -- all are government abuses of power, and apparently the People have no recourse from unconstitutional laws and the oppression continues unabated.

I don't know what censorship is, I just want information that is true and productive.

Censorship is a lead in to absolute "allegiance" to the dictator.
As in communist China "you will speak what you are told to speak." Anything else is sedition. This is precisely what the bought and paid for "media" is slobbering to do...maybe for a pay off in the "new regime". In China there are cameras literally everywhere. If your countenance isn't pleasing to der Fuher, Chinese style, you will be hauled in and interrogated...make sure you say goodby to your family every time you leave your home. Notice the cameras on every stop they really give a rip about your safety? Unlikely. The left is crawling into your internet and phones, new cars are filled with electronics...don't be so naive as to think it's to make them "more efficient" or that they can't be remotely controlled.
We live in an increasingly "surveillance" permeated society.
We should shun electric cars all together. Unedited research tells the story the left won't.
The left will lie, cheat, censor, tap, steal and if necessary, "remove" those who get in the way of their "kingship".
Twain was so far ahead of his time....
