Be Careful What You Wish For

As you witness the mad rush to throw away individual liberty and bestow ever more power and money upon our elected officials, under the mistaken belief that these will finally be America’s Greatest Leaders, elected officials who will somehow fix all of our problems for us so that we don’t have to grow up and take responsibility for our own lives, ask yourself what you have done to bring America to this point of extreme metastatic governmental growth. Have you found yourself believing the words of a campaigning politician, biting and clawing its way to the top of the self-serving cesspool of our great nation’s sadly aristocratic capitol? Have you found yourself trusting a President when they promise “temporary” power-grabbing measures? Have you voted to give up even more of your hard-earned money so that these same politicians can use it further their own interests? Do you really believe the government knows what’s best for you? And my final question: Have you not noticed that power in Washington never stays put, always swinging from libertarian to socialist, and from socialist back to libertarian, decade after decade? With that little historical truth in mind, how much power, how much money, and how much trust to you want to place in a government which today may pleasure your personal political slant, but tomorrow will most certainly swing back around to the dreaded “other side”?
