It’s bad enough that in a supposedly free society you can’t sell a chicken sandwich to your fellow citizen without buying a bazillion permits from the state. If they can prevent you from selling a chicken sandwich because they don’t like your opinions, then what can’t they do to you?Well-reasoned arguments are not enough to counter this lunacy, however. As Rush Limbaugh puts it, what is needed is to stand up and ask: "Who the hell do you think you are, Rahm Emanuel? Who the hell do you think you are? What country do you think you’re in?” Steyn is right: "Until more citizens of free nations are willing to say to statist hacks 'Who the hell do you think you are?', liberty will continue to bleed."
