Now THAT'S the kind of government we need! Keep it all to the absolute minimum, and don't waste time and money on an election if there's no pressing need for one.

If all government officials were part-timers who didn't really want the job in the first place, we'd have, oh, the kind of government envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

In other words, a government that left us alone and let us live our lives as long as we didn't violate the rights of others to their life, liberty, and property.

@andyjaggy Seems like the Tea Party is winning plenty.
