The push for more government interference (usually by those on the left but definitely involving those on the right and in between also) has long been something people have fought against and lost for the most part. Reagan used to say something along the lines of the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen which seems to be true.
Riiight. Because wanting government oversight to keep poison out of your food and consumer products is so comparable to having the NSA tap your phone without a warrant. Somewhere, in the mirror universe, there's a dumbasssome pontificating like this:
"Why do conservatives support business? Don't they know that slave traders were businessmen too? Hur hur, derp."
