"I think that there are very few constitutional limits that prevent the federal government from rules that would affect your private life." Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA).
Isn't it amazing that someone can be elected being this brazen about their desire to run our lives? Democrats are not even trying to hide their authoritarian instincts anymore. The Democrats, at their root, have a philosophy that is oriented towards state control and state management over every American's life. That is why we continue to say that Democrats hate America, because America, at its core, was designed as a constitutional republic to protect the rights of the citizenry, not run their lives.
