Do you think this is a true statement? Government is made of individuals. That's WHAT the government is. This assumes government is a big thing out there of which we're all a part--like a suckling pig.
They just can't help themselves. Lliberal Democrats reveal themselves to be the party of government at every turn. They wish to turn the discussion from "individualism" and "exceptionalism" to being part of a collective. Try that for a couple of generations and see where we end up. Look at what has happened to the American psyche in a short four years. Frightening.
