Happy Fourth!

While finding the GKChesterton quotes which anteceded P-Mac's essay (below), we also found this one:

"The Declaration of Independence dogmatically bases all rights on the fact that God created all men equal; and it is right; for if they were not created equal, they were certainly evolved unequal. There is no basis for democracy except in a dogma about the divine origin of man."

Why do Americans in general, and Wisonsinites in particular, seem so bent on trying to regulate nearly every facet of a free life? I'll never understand people who would give up so many decisions to government.
