Do not trust the government.....

The Sword of Damocles that hangs over all of our heads and we risk it falling due to tampering with fundamental rights that define liberty. We have been a success not because of government but because government largely stayed out of our lives. However, 80 years ago, the stage was set as activist government shifted economic responsibility from the states to the federal level. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but this has become a slippery, since we are not able to reverse course and the path of least resistance is to trade our economic liberty for central economic planning and authority. People are still aware of this but with the hard-left leaning press driving socialism this will not last forever....
that just 27% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that government investments made America great. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree, but a sizable 32% are not sure.
From here. People just cannot be sure anymore. The central government control will never stop at the shores of economic liberty, they will continue to intervene in more-and-more non-economic facets of American life. Like the USSR, China, North Korea and host of other fascist states, we too will be facing a central authority that will demand our respect and obedience. Indicative of this shift is the central planning authority commanding the Catholic Church to deliver a service that goes against their core beliefs. This behavior will become the norm as government will have to continue to intervene to paper over festering past disasters that are their own doing. I think that this quote very much captures the risk that we are taking unless we take back our nation and our lives.....
This latest erosion of our first freedom should make all Americans pause. When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental to the life of our nation, one shudders to think what lies ahead. -Cardinal-designate Timothy M. Dolan-
From here.
