"'Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.'  We have heard that many times.  What is also the price of freedom is the toleration of imperfections.  If everything that is wrong with the world becomes a reason to turn more power over to some political savior, then freedom is going to erode away....  If you think government should 'do something' about anything that ticks you off, or anything you want and don't have, then you have made your choice between utopia and freedom."
