    I only voted for those that if people don't do harm others. Like murder. If you do it, you harm others. If you drive a gas guzzler, you harm others.

    I don't know, X...

    I think I'm some kind of liberal (certainly compared to many of you, I am) yet I didn't find any of those mandates very sensible.

    Mandating things that are impossible for people to do doesn't make much sense, and most of those mandates Americans could not do, not if they wanted to do them.

    I drive a Buick regal, custom. I forget the year and I'm not strolling out front to look. It's old. I don't drive it because I'm selfish, I drive it because I'm broke, got it for relatively cheap, and can't afford to replace it.

    Why was the "for my Conservative friends" list not written in the "should be forced to" language?
