How Dumbasses Enable The Jackasses.......
#38
John L, it is not an expansion of government for the government to exercise a power it already has, to regulate professional sports.

My definition of "big government" must be very different from yours. It does not require a big government to perform what it is supposed to do. You seem to regard big government as anything government may do that might impinge upon your freedom to do whatever you want to do. There are many things most people want to do that are positive and beneficial and productive, and should be encouraged. There are some things that some people want to do that must be curbed for the good of everyone else, because some people want to do things that are evil and harmful and predatory. It is government that protects and maintains civilization by keeping the barbarians at bay. Our responsibility is to maintain constant vigilance against the attempts by barbarians to take over government. If the barbarians ever take over completely, we will have true lawless anarchy--and I think if that happens you will find that it is not quite in keeping with the libertarian ideals you espouse.
