Comfort or Security

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.

  1. By next year over 50% of Americans won’t have to pay income tax at all. It’s a win win for Obama and the rest of the Democrats. As soon as a minority pays all of the taxes they can promise the majority more government handouts paid for by less than 50% of the population. Class warfare finally wins out and America is well on its way to becoming a third world country.

    • I disagree with you, way less than 50% of Americans will have to pay taxes. Obama may have promised that but he can’t provide, because if he did than out economy would collapse and a revolution would probably occur too.
