"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Why Centralize?

Check out the text of this speech by Czech president Vaclav Klaus via, once again, BARCEPUNDIT.

Is it just me but, as both Europe and the U.S. centralize government power further, does it not seem a trifle odd that very few people seem to remember how bad communism and other ultra-strong central governments were throughout this century? The Soviet Union? Nazi Germany? Red China? Eastern Europe? Did any of these countries prosper? How much power over your life are you willing to give to government bureaucrats?
