The essence of big government is telling others how to live their lives

The media has, appropriately, latched onto the foolish policy of Cincinnati native, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to force employers, including churches, to provide health insurance coverage that includes birth control medications (including abortifacients) to its employees.

The Catholic Church, and other faith-based institutions, have rebelled against Sebelius' heavy-handed policy.

However, whether it is telling people where they can live, what transportation they can drive, what kind of light bulb they can use, what kind of toilet they can flush, it's all different sides of the same coin.

The essence of big government is telling people how to live their lives, instead of letting them decide for themselves.
