"I understand some fears and complaints about government," says David Mekelburg of Splice Today. "But if you're a libertarian, a Tea Partier or just someone who really hates the IRS, then I suggest you take a trip to Delhi, India, and look around a bit. Yeah, sending mail packages sucks, but that's not the first thing you notice: it's the thick black smog. Then you notice the trash everywhere. Then the absolutely bonkers, unruly traffic. Then the stray dogs. Finally, you notice everyone drinking bottled water because the tap water is poison".
