We all exchange a small amount of freedom for the security of living within an organized society.
Power is given to government for the sole purpose of restricting behaviour that injures others against their will. That limited government is the symbol of a free society.
Extending the powers of government beyond that, into matters of personal choice, crosses the line between freedom and tyranny.
It is up to us, as voters, to decide how much government involvement we want in our lives, but when making that decision, it is important to keep in mind that, if you allow yourself to impose your beliefs on others, through the use of government, you are opening the door for others to impose their beliefs on you.
