Blue Train I was born in 1956 and well remember the late 60s and early 70s. I also understand that "hippie" was then, and apparently still is, used derisively to label any who question the role of government. I am a social conservative by most any definition; but, I still think that when it comes to government involvement in my personal affairs, whether it is guns, religion, or the role of the police, we need to be vigilant that our personal liberties are not stepped on in the name of "the greater good".
"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do." Benjamin Franklin
"If you let "need" be a requirement and Government be the arbiter of that "need", then Liberty is as dead as King Tut." Jimbob86
