It's about food. Itís about your home. Itís about your life. The government is worried about all of the above. All Iím saying is you should be worried theyíre worried. Hereís why: Theyíre telling you that you canít take care of yourself. You canít be trusted with what you put in your mouth or what you sign on the mortgage dotted line. So theyíll tell you what to put in your mouth and theyíll save you from what you signed on that dotted line. Does anyone see a trend here?

There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment. The essence of these needs is captured in the phrase to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy. The need to live is our physical need for such things as food, clothing, shelter, economical well-being, health. The need to love is our social need to relate to other people, to belong, to love and to be loved. The need to learn is our mental need to develop and to grow. And the need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution.
