During this financial “crisis” America has turned instead of to themselves, but to the government. Everyone wants a free handout from the government, the citizens and the corporations. The only problem is that to do this the government has to get more power. And America hasn’t noticed how much larger the government is getting. Amitai Etzioni in his book How Patriotic is the Patriot Act said this:
The higher the fear the greater the want to curtail liberty to protect safety
That is what is happening in America today. We are willing to cut back on our liberties so that we can have financial security. We need to stop the government now, before it is to late. Obama is trying to get more power so he can have a bigger government. He says that it is the government’s job to save us from this crisis. The Washington Post said this in an article “Panic “r” us”:
In a crisis, government is the last bulwark against a complete financial collapse. That’s the main justification for regulation.
The government however is not our last hope. We the people are the first, last, and only hope. The government need only interfere on very small issues. The founding fathers did not give this kind of power to this government. We must stop it before it is too late.
