The Warfare-Welfare Party vs. the Welfare-Warfare Party
by Anthony Gregory
Aren't you excited? In not much longer than a year we as Americans have the privilege to participate in the most righteous of all human activities -- voting! I've been taught my whole life by government schools and television that not only is voting a fundamental right, it is the most important one. As long as your vote, along with a hundred million others or so, is counted according to a somewhat coherent set of rules, and as long as you voted for one of the two parties that are significant, and as long as when the votes are all counted and recounted and the Supreme Court or whoever makes the final decision you were part of the process, you can't complain. That's freedom!

But such advocates ignore a fundamental assault on privacy, which has nothing to do with security concerns: the belief that the Personal is Political.
