We definitely need some logic lessons around here.
Since Obama is everything Bush was and then some, are you disgusted with him now?

Or do you give him a pass because he's hipper and bi-racial?

Remedial logic lesson:

We were protesting the policies of the Bush Administration. In other words, Bush was the problem.

The commenter here was saying that "government is the problem." In other words, government is the problem.

Really. That's kind of debatable.

Government is nothing more than coercion.

There have been plenty of anarchial societies that did just fine without government.
