I guarantee, with WE THE PEOPLE allocating 5 to 10 percent (average 7.5 percent) of our energy to government, that government will be quite limited and quite Constitutional.

And I would venture we all would benefit from this. We want this because, to the degree the government does less, YOU and I will have MORE. We will also get to DO more. This will make you, me and our children stronger. Producers are stronger than government beneficiaries. If some government does something for you at every turn -- and taxes you for the "service" -- how are you going to learn to do it for yourself and become independent?

Contrary to what you might read in the pages of FOREIGN AFFAIRS magazine, what we need is MORE independence and LESS inter-dependence. "Interdependence" is one of the favorite words globalists pushing a one-world government use. Their next favorite word is "security." Security for this and security that. Endless security. If government insures everything in your life to make you endlessly "secure," how are you gong to become self-reliant and independent? You're not. You're going to become a sick, writhing worm sitting on a couch watching government-sponsored, network propaganda. Panem et circenses.

And contrary to the fear-based memes put out by the power elite trying to establish the "liberal world order," becoming self-reliant isn't an onerous task. It simply means that the resources the Universe provides to us all are allocated to the INDIVIDUAL, not some governing, or corporate entity.

This means more control for you and less control for your government. Your government has no AUTHORITY to abridge your freedom or self-reliance in any way. Remember, the State and the Church are competing for you reliance on them. One offers a system or external ethics and the other offers a system or internal ethics.

Self-reliance and independence are based on a system of internal ethics. This is also the definition of "freedom," and its more responsible big brother, "liberty."

Greater liberty is greater control because liberty requires greater knowledge and control is based on knowledge. An individual that's knowledgeable and free is an individual that's in control and powerful. The State does NOT want you to be powerful. Perhaps the Church does, but no more powerful than God.

The State attempts to dictate your every move, and tax you for the "service" in order to pay for the police powers it uses to dictate future moves. This is not freedom or liberty, but enslavement. You will become stronger, and so will your children, only to the degree you reject interdependence and embrace independence. And believe it or not, you will also have LESS competition to deal with, for your greatest source of competition comes from the State. It competes for your money, your time, your allegiance and your system of ethics.
