Defining the Terms

Words used by politicians sometimes don’t have the same meaning as in the real world. A good example of this is the language used in the health-care “reform” debate. A recent piece from Ross Kaminsky at Human Events gives several good examples of this.

Here’s on of my favorites:

Choice — A decision you may make, selecting from a list preselected by a bureaucrat; depending on the issue, the number of possibilities may range from zero to three; Alternatively, something Democrats believe citizens are not smart enough to make.

Someone should come up with a whole dictionary like this consisting of terms used by statists.
