Smaller Government is Liberty

The control that our Federal Government has over the people has grown very close to the status of a dictatorship. Those in government, from elected official, to appointed and elected judiciary, to employees, have tremendous power that is hard for the average citizen to stand against. This trend is directly counter to the reason why this country cut it self off form the British Empire. This is a very dangerous trend and will take this country down the path of ruin.

America’s economy is the strongest and most successful the world has every seen. This has enabled our country to be the most generous nation ever. Our strength has helped liberate the world from tyranny several times over. The main ingredients of our success are individual liberty, a good work ethic, entrepreneurish freedom, and a government that does not interfere in the lives of the people.

I urge all to keep in mind the main purpose of the Federal Government as set up by our founders, is to protect the people from enemies foreign and domestic. This formula has served this country well for over two hundred years. Every attempt at controlling the people has had disastrous results.

By moving closer and closer to socialism the spirit and strength that has made this the strongest, most tolerant and free nation will be suffocated and the nation will plunge into the quagmire of dependency. Keep our military and security departments strong, allow capitalism to work, and maintain vigilance of criminal activity. Allow the states to educate its citizens to keep our lead in innovation by keeping more revenues at the local level. These things we must keep upmost in our hearts and mind and work to maintain our greatness.
