Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

remember when america wanted a constitutional government?

They didn't tell people waht drugs they could buy. They didn't need a nanny government to protect them from every risk. They thought the 4th ammendment was a good idea and that being president wasn't a good enough reason to do whatever you want. They thought fiscal responsibility was the way to go and throwing the first punch is what bullies did. They thought the content of your character mattered more than your political party or your religious affiliation. They thought paying your fair share was the honorable path rather than looting the government for everything they could get.

I don't remember that america either, but it still seems like a nice goal.
