    If that was Lincoln's last word on slavery and equality then Williams might have a point in his piece. He conveniently leaves out Lincoln's evolution. I'm not sure why you brought that up though.

    Williams speaks well.

    But the fatal flaw in his sermon is that he makes the unsupported leap from social security to Totalitarianism in one sentence. He then mentions a bunch of ridiculous scenarios with the famous "well, what's to stop them from A, B and C?"

    My gawd. Shut up, fear monger. Be reasonable and logical. No one's gonna tax our income for "housing" and "education." ... Horrible.
