I get asked – what’s a Clover? Definition herewith:
* Clover (noun):
The root cause of every affront to liberty. The spoonful of poo that ruins a gallon of ice cream. Clovers are instinctive authoritarian control freaks. They can be found on the political left and the political right and in between. They do not believe in live and let live. They believe in telling others how to live – using violence and threats of violence to coerce obedience.
Clovers can’t abide the organic society, voluntary interaction or free exchange. The are driven to control and regulate and micromanage and absolutely will not leave you alone.
*** and ***
Clovers think people are too irresponsible and foolish to be trusted to govern themselves – but put limitless trust in people (that is, uber Clovers) once adorned with special titles and costumes such as “officer” and “senator” and “president.”
Clovers consider other people their property – as evidence by their limitless desire to control other people, even to the extent of dictating to them what they may do with their own bodies.
*** and ***
Most rank-and-file Clovers are, at bottom, bullies and busybodies – but also cowards who hide behind euphemisms (see above regarding “taxes”) and proxies like the ballot box. They are not bold enough to actually take other people’s things themselves and shy away from telling other people what to do – such as personally telling their neighbor to “buckle up for safety” – but are eager to vote to have others perform this work on their behalf.
Clovers are generally only dangerous in herds.

I admire a person who speaks the truth, from my pov, and is willing to pay the price for it. (Google banned him from serving ads and making money thru them. That’s their right, but I don’t like it.)
May I suggest you support him? I do.
And he puts out GREAT car articles too.
