The U.S. used to be the “land of the free, the home of the brave.” Today, government more and more tells us what we can and cannot do. We MUST purchase health insurance that we do not want or need or pay an increasingly large fine. We CANNOT purchase incandescent light bulbs — period. Did Washington outlaw horses in order to usher in the automobile era? Did Washington outlaw the manual typewriter to encourage people to purchase computers? So why must Washington turn ordinary citizens into criminals for merely wanting to use their old technologies? Maybe somebody is making a profit?
