“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Living under the increasingly oppressive thumb of government

You don't think we live under the tyrannical thumb of our paternalistic government? The Obama administration is releasing it's "Federal Unified Agenda" on the eve of Thanksgiving, containing 3,415 new regulations that will be imposed on the people. One of the worst is a redefinition of "waters of the United States" in the Clean Water Act. It'll give the unaccountable thugs at the EPA virtually unlimited power to regulate even a damp spot on your driveway where you washed your car if they want to. 

This is the 5th time Obama has released the new regulations on the eve of a major holiday when nobody's paying attention. So much for transparency. 

I'll be shocked, SHOCKED, if any future republican president or congress repeals any of this. After all, regulations concentrate power in Washington and that's always good for politicians of either party.
