I am with the GOP on this one

GOP decries "nanny state" push on junk food ads. It is more than a "nanny state. The least offensive definition of a nanny is "any person or thing regarded as treating people like children, esp by being patronizing or overprotective."

But it goes further than treating us like children, it steps deep into the state dominance over every aspect of one's life all in the name of protecting us. There is an evil in the "regulation" of citizens and residents in the guise of regulating business advertising.  It seems more and more that government doesn't represent us - it seeks to control us. Maybe it is because China has our money - but the Chinese & US dichotomy is ceasing to exist.
