"What is government? What is political power?
Government is the local monopoly of physical violence. That is the most basic definition of government.
That is it. It is forcing you to behave by it’s rules.
A little mental exercise. If you do not pay your taxes what happens? A man with a gun comes and threatens you with violence. Do not follow any government dictate for long enough and you will end up with a gun pointed at you. Which is why every time you hear someone say "They should do something about X”, where "they” invariably means the government you should ask the complainer if the problem is really important enough to have someone get a gun pointed at them.
Now, what is political power at its most basic level? The ability to direct the government to do your bidding.
Is this basic enough for you to understand why the accumulation of massive political power should concern everyone, not just Conservatives?"
I've been absent from all forms of internet connection because of work but sitting hit since work is unbearably slow today I was thinking of you and wanted to say hi!
Wasn't Tuesday a wonderful day in WI?

I feel as if I missed a golden opportunity for great bloggity-blogging during the Great Walker Affirmation... but I was otherwise occupied other shit toward the greater goal.
I participated in the election to the extent that I could... and I believe in Governor Walker, and I believe in the direction which his administration has our fine state pointed toward.
The Walker re-election was (in the words of Sheriff Joe) a "Big Fucking Deal".
Tuesday was not as wonderful as Wednesday. and I have my fingers and toes crossed that WI businesses respond appropriately now that we told them "we like them.. we really like them!"
As always, my very best to you Lizard. I pray that you are well and happy.
