I don't want or need the SEC to "protect me" from "myself" or anyone else by preventing me from buying leveraged index ETFs. These instruments are an important part of my overall investment strategy.
I am an adult who understands what I'm doing, and I don't want the government interfering with my right to buy investments of my own choosing.
People need to be able to be responsible for their own decisions, and/or to be able to engage professionals to help them determine if certain investments are appropriate. It is not the government's responsibility to make such determinations, nor is it desireable.
