"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

No Questions Asked

I have personally played this game in public in various ways.  I never actually used a clipboard or tried to get people to sign a petition, but I would just start talking and within two to three minutes I could get most people to agree that this stuff should be banned.

The people I couldn't fool with this routine either had a solid science background or were skeptical conservatives who kept asking questions until they figured it out.
