"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." George Washington
All of the abuses listed in the video are real. Bush created them, and Obama has now moved to extend and expand those abuses. Rest assured, more are on the way, and many are here that we do not even know about.
ON WHAT GROUNDS DO YOU INSIST ON PUTTING YOUR "BLIND TRUST" IN GOVERNMENT, ITS REPRESENTATIVES, OR BUREACRACIES AND AGENCIES? How do you go on claiming patriotism and quoting the founding fathers, while you ignore the numerous and repetitive warnings from them to keep government under an ever vigilant watchful eye? Do I think that every individual in government is bad? Of course not. However, we seem to fail to realize that government is a beast ever yearning to grow all-powerful, despite the intentions of those who make up its many offices. As history shows, governments always find their way to that end.
Sadly, it is partisanship and media-created cults of personality that largely facilitate this. I sincerely hope that you all wake up and consider the consequences of letting your emotions lead your politics. Thanks to this, and the other half of Americans asleep in front of American Idol, we now serve a fearful master.
Having given this some thought, and upon reflection of the founding fathers quotes concerning government, I have this to say:
Why do you insist on seeing government as a benign force, especially if your guy is in office? It is a creature of such an untrustworthy nature, that it must be set into bondage and bound in chains at the very moment of its birth. If at any time during its life it becomes freed of those chains, it will most assuredly set about on a horrible path, destroying everything that is good and just, continuing on until, having destroyed society and freedom, it ultimately destroys itself.
