The overriding question in American politics today isn’t between the Demonrat or Republicrat parties. It is between those fat, lazy, contented sheople suckling at the government teat and those who actually believe in the Constitutional foundations of liberty that the United States of America were formulated upon. Who wins, the media besotted mall rats or the hard working people who support them?
“Why we love Government?”, explains Walter Williams in an excellent analysis, demonstrating the threat to American freedom.
A simple question for you to consider; do a majority of American people (or at least American voters) value their government handouts more than their individual liberty and responsibility?
Fact: Government doesn’t do anything, except wage war, better than private individuals and organizations can do so. Nothing! Why should others be required to pay their earnings for the benefits of others unless they CHOOSE to do so? Why should Government, at ANY level, provide for the needy (or not so needy) rather than their own families, churches and community organizations?
At the very least let’s eliminate EVERY SINGLE current function, program and department of the Federal Government not SPECIFICALLY delineated in the United States Constitution. Return those to the States or the People as stipulated by the ignored 9th and 10th amendments to the Constitution.
I’d go further and eliminate ALL BUT THE MOST NECESSARY functions from the purview of Government entities. Some things, I am willing to allow government to do in the interest of my State and Community. Crime investigation (Crime isn’t preventable so “crime prevention is a canard), Criminal courts, Roads and Sewers, Fire Protection, Parks and Recreation (locally) types of things. This isn’t a suggestion towards Anarchism rather an argument towards radical minimization of Government in order to return the preponderance of LIBERTY and RESPONSIBILITY to where it belongs, with THE PEOPLE.
