Nonsensical Catchphrase I Hate
A few of my acquaintances have posted this phrase: "A government big enough to supply you with everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have." That may be true, but a government that doesn't provide you with anything is still big enough to take away everything that you have. The despots of the 20th Century such as Stalin and Pol Pot didn't provide anything to their people except for suffering, fear, and despair. But they were big enough to take everything away.
