Quote of the Day

"If the law says that such a board or authority may do what it pleases, anything that board or authority does is legal---but its actions are certainly not subject to the Rule of Law.  By giving the government unlimited powers, the most arbitrary rule can be made legal; and in this way a democracy may set up the most complete despotism imaginable."

-FA Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

Tell me we aren't there.
