It has been established that the role of government--at least as far as the
American experiment is concerned--is to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness. At least, I seem to recall reading that somewhere.

Unfortunately it has become an unquestionable political truism that
government must ensure, not merely the PURSUIT of happiness, but happiness
itself. That's where we have departed from our original, correct principles,
and why we are in the mess we're in, whether you're talking about taxes,
intrusive government regulation, or what-have-you.

I HOPE the role of government is NOT to insure (or even ensure) a level
playing field. IMO, they are already doing WAY to much for me as it is
