    I knew a libertarian who signed up for the list when it first started.  Right away he started getting calls, when he never had before.

    Apparently, early in the Do Not Call implementation, charities and other non-profits were allowed to call the numbers.  A few of them started using the list for the opposite of its intent.  Served the guy right for trusting the federal government!

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

      At least, not in my state. The only organizations allowed to call me are ones I've done business with (or donated to), and I get very few of those.

      The overwhelming majority of the cold calls I get are (naturally) Democratic candidates begging for money. Otherwise, dinnertime's a pleasure around here.
