Stossel: US Moving From 'Inclusion' to Totalitarianism

Bake me a cake, or go to jail!

Sadly, that is the new message from “inclusive” America. If you don’t want to cater, photograph, preside over, sell pizza at, sell flowers to or otherwise participate in a gay wedding, you will be punished. If you don’t want your business to pay for a kind of birth control that you consider murder, you will pay fines until your business is bankrupt.

Personally, I think both birth control and homosexuality are just fine, and gay marriage is as valid as straight marriage. But forcing everyone to act as if they think that way is just wrong. We have moved from “inclusion” to totalitarianism.

Why force someone who disapproves of your actions to bake you a cake? Lots of other bakers would love the business. This debate has moved from inclusion to demanding that everyone adopt your values.

With the NSA recording every call, text and fax, and the Post Office photographing every piece of mail (front and back), and the power of the government to literally run you out of business, I imagine the "thought police" (google it) are just a few years out from becoming a reality.
We are already being told NOT TO TALK in our own car.
Keep cheering!!!!!!!!

It's that way now. You have to be careful what you say in the workplace and at school. Phones are monitored and the new smart tv's and laptops have camera's and recording equipment to watch and record you, unless you find a way to turn this feature off. That's probably why the federal government is buying up ammo. They know through monitoring, the people are pissed!
