More government intrusion, another government mandate

Republicans claim to be a party that favors less infringement on our liberty.

But, in practice, Republicans seem to love control over our lives as much as Democrats.

Here in Georgia, Republican lawmakers are pushing a mandate that requires all high school students take at least one on-line course in order to graduate.

Encouraging on-line learning is a good thing. Adding another item to the compulsory list of things government requires of its citizens is not. If Republicans really believe in a government that is less intrusive, why do they seem to go out of their way to find new stuff to demand from us?
