And yet the left continue to idolize their parano pet tyrants

Our less refined, less reality and fact based commenters seem still madly in love with the tyrannies that those who experienced or understood the enlightenment saw as toxic to the human spirit as long as two centuries ago:

"If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the reedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute."
-- Thomas Paine
