but simply providing a warning does not absolve someone from responsibility for foreseeable problems which later cause injury.

The last time I looked at the constitution, we were a democratic republic, with a strong tradition of capitalism.

While the government has a responsibility for our general economic growth, only in a socialist society is there a responsibility for individual economic success.

In addition to the need for retirement savings, the government has warned us against saturated fat, smoking, and venereal disease.

If you ignore these warnings and eat too many big macs, smoke, and consort with prostitutes, who is at fault for the consequences? You or the nanny state you seem to be promoting.
