More nanny state tyranny

The headlines read, "Preschooler's Homemade Lunch Replaced with Cafeteria Nuggets; State agent inspects sack lunches, forces preschoolers to purchase cafeteria food instead."

According to the article,
The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day. 
The government (in this case, state government) will always give "good" reasons for imposing more and more and more regulations on us. The question is, will Americans ever wake up and rebel (at the voting both) against such nanny-state tyranny at all levels--or will we continue to accept it because, after all, it must be good for us?

As Ronald Reagan once said:
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
