The slippery slopes

Here is an excellent post about how the government chips away at our rights and ability to make decisions for ourselves. They normally don't try to do it all at once, because people would notice.

For some reason, people call us crazy and fear-mongers when we say we don't want a specific law because it will lead to another, and another, and . . . . These people are either ignorant or stupid, because they can't look at how the government has done that with every issue. Why don't we want particular speech to be stifled? It will lead to all speech being stifled. Why don't we want a particular model firearm to be banned? It will lead to all being banned.

Check out the story for yourself. Worth the read.
