I grew up reading Vonnegut. This is one of his best.
I want to write a similar story, replacing “equal” with “safe”, and “2081″ with “in 2013, to allow the actions of a deranged individual to rule the country…”.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Ben Franklin
The fuckin’ nutters on the left just don’t understand the rule of unintended consequences, much less how US law works. Once laws are on the books, they’re there until a court rules them unconstitutional. The left has proven that they are authoritarian, and I don’t like authoritarians, so I’m clearly not a liberal.
Which doesn’t mean that Sarah Palin and the teabaggers aren’t idiots…
