Nanny State vs Liberty

NC State Representative Glen Bradley is credited for this comment,

?We were brought up to think America is the land of the free, but we?re drifting into this whole nanny state thing, where the government controls our every action for our own good. The freedom to pursue happiness implies the freedom to make mistakes. If you have a government that prevents citizens from making mistakes, you don?t have liberty anymore.?

I agree. I have the right to be right. I also have the right to be wrong. Anything other than that implies a totalitarian society that is controlled by a communist government. We are headed in that direction.
