Is Government a Threat to Our Freedom? | Cato @ Liberty

People think that the Federal government is a threat to their freedoms and liberty. However, they also vote overwhelmingly for utopian wealth redistribution at the national level. Just a clue here, economic freedom is a liberty that has been under attack at the federal lever for 8 decades.

But Americans are finally realizing that the over-arching national government is destroying individual liberty with their interference in nearly everything that we do. Once these same people realize that Utopian wealth redistribution is part of this destruction of personal liberty, we can start having hope again.

The founding fathers recognized the risk of a powerful central government and its negative effects upon personal liberty. they recognized this and codified limits on Federal power. However, since the 1930's, we have ignored the 9th and 10th amendments of the Bill of Rights.
