"Progressives and other naifs once dreamed of the 'full service' state: Cradle-to-grave health benefits, guaranteed job security and a complimentary mint on your pillow from Uncle Sugar. What we got instead, and what we’re always going to get, is the 'self service' state: You help yourself if you can, while the state helps itself to anything and everything it wants. The purpose of the state is to serve the state." (05/24/11)
