True, government can tax you to death and find ways to spend your money, but never as effectively and prudently as you would and certainly not in YOUR best interest. Proper government should remain limited and responsive to the will of the people.
The current government of the United States of America, led by President Barrack Hussein Obama and his socialist/Marxist supporters in congress, wish to take us down the path that leads to the destiny THEY have chosen for us.
As our federal government continues to usurp more and more of our liberties it grows larger and larger, feeding on each and every American citizen like the parasite it has become. As we the people continue to give the government more and more control over our lives, we can continue to watch those we elect to represent us bankrupt our nation.
As government niether creates nor sells anything of intrinsic value it needs our efforts and productivity to survive. As we produce products of value and sell that product to a global market we, not the government create wealth. By what right does the government take our (individual) wealth and redistribute that wealth as it sees fit? The answer; by the right we have so readily given it by our failure to restrain its largesse. We have ourselves to blame for the mess we are in today.
As our government bankrupts our nation by creating unsustainable debt, remember this; as the government we failed to control goes, so we to will go.
Isn't it time we as a people heed the simple, yet profound words of William Ernest Henley. For in the end we are truely Masters of Our Own Fate. Either by action or inaction. The choice rests with each individual.
