    As far as the bigger picture goes, I totally 100% agree with you that the system has failed.  I am really, really glad not to be living under the tyranny of Mr. Cranick and his ilk anymore imposing a falied system like this on a sensible minority; I am very happy to now live in a somewhat more progressive place.

    But to me it's somewhat of a dilemna whether it's up to me (with "me" let's say representing the federal goverment) to come in and over-ride an idiotic local failed system - that seems to be a tad heavy handed (and has tinges of Waco-Branch Davidian catastrophe written all over it - seriously, if people don't want to be helped, is it moral to force "help" upon them?)
