Oh, we understand Adam Smith. We understand Adam Smith, just fine. And we reject him. And we reject the evil of his works. All of this "Government to serve the people and protect their property" bleeding-heart liberal namby pamby is going to get left back with the other victims of progress, such as the dodo bird, and Don Knotts, and Canada.
You see, Hobbes had it wrong as well. This noted bleeding-heart liberal thought it was government's job to keep life from being "nasty, brutish, and short." He could not have been more wrong.
Join us. We remember our own. Our followers do not have lives that are nasty, brutish, and short, because they _are_ nasty, brutish, and short. Plus you will get to wear a cool uniform, and people will look at you in fear, and the people who made fun of you in elementary school will be your slaves, and you will never again suffer insecurity about your tiny penis, or weird shaped breasts.
As for Mencken, we understand him fine. Just fine.
Vote Scorched Earth in November -
"The Senate will be 55 democrats, 44 republicans, and one Scorched Earther. The first two will have numbers. The last will have a flamethrower. C-Span ratings will be truly unbelievable."
