Thomas Jefferson once said: "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have". Ronald Reagan also touched a nerve in patriotic Americans when he said the scariest words in the English language are, “Hello, I am from the government and I am here to help.” But these two great men were right.
These were bold statements that were meant to support the idea of limited government as defined by the United States constitution. Over 20 years later the country needs, more than ever before, to be reminded of the perils of big government and that the current drive to replace the American foundational principle of individualism with the socialistic principle of collectivism and “sharing the wealth”.
How about the nutjobs that think corporations have a hold on government and dictate their every move? America is a capitalist country with a free enterprise system, and many of the corporations here in America are multi-national. So eliminating them here not only destroys the American economy, but that of the world, which Obama would love! He and George Soros could have a ball using a global economy at that point.
These are scary times, so let the new scary words awaken us to the right course of action, let’s bring back good, old common sense and remember “the Constitution first, compromise second”.
