Do we need big government?

In the time of the tea-party big government types are on the defensive. Some of these folks have come to argue a point debated since the dawn of civilization. In addition to ancient history the very founding of our nation is rooted in this age old debate. 

Do we need an iron fist control network controlling our every move?

Studying history one sees a vast array of social structures ie The dynasties of the far east, Kama Sutra in india, The dawn of democracy in Greece. In Europe the Celtics, In the Americas a myriad of native tribes from the Aztec to the Hopi.

What can the study of these cultures even from a surface scan tell us about human sociology and how it relates to government? For the sake of time I will share with you my conclusions.

I believe that government too big is a far greater danger than government that is too small. When I look at history I see example after example of governments run out of control. Most notably, Germany elected a man who ran as a socialist. He later framed another state for an attack he committed on his own capital. He shredded the rule of law, launched the 2nd world war, instituted a complete police state and committed the atrocities of the holocaust.

We are all familiar with Adolf Hitler. What we are not often taught is how the government convinced the people to fall into this system. At the core of this was eugenics, the supposed science of engineering the master race. The government told the people it had to control everything in order to restore the health and prosperity of the nation.

A government which controls the people will one day fall into complete despotism. Corruption grows worse every year when the people are not able to check government power. The more control the more corruption, the more corruption the more control. Invariably in this enviroment only the most dastardly thrive. We don’t see a lot of governments step back from the brink and relinquish control. Over and over we see civilizations deteriorate and destroy themselves to the personal ruin of the people.

Some throw up their hands and say that it’s just the way it is. They knowingly accept this fate. I am here to tell you that we owe our forefathers better than that.

The founding fathers took a huge step in the history of civilizations. A pure democracy is mob rule and can be easily corrupted. Knowing this these men created something new. A constitutional republic. That means that the constitution is the rule of law not the will of 51%.

Our constitution holds the rights of the individual above all. The only constitution that states that men get their rights directly from their creator. This way it is built in that these rights cannot be taken away by government because they were not granted by it.

The constitution also explicitly states that the people (through the constitution) have afforded government specific powers for the sole purpose of protecting our god given rights. It also states that any powers not given to the federal government remain with the sates or the people.

Sorry folks but 90% of what the US Federal Government does is illegal under its own charter. Even worse what it is tasked to do it ignores.

This is simply fact.

If you allow this to continue we will move only towards our own destruction. We are more than a hundred years down the road toward tyranny. One day the worst will happen and it will be because good people stayed on the bench. Our founders told us this. They knew it would happen and warned us in writing. Their words can still be read and are more than applicable.

Statists want us to give up our rights and freedoms saying “you have to so government can keep you safe”, they tell us what to eat, drink, smoke. Scan us, Search us, tax us. None of it is any good and it is bankrupting our country.

Yes there are draw backs to a smaller government, nothing is perfect. But Big Government creates the problems and the solution is always more control for our own good. This argument was made in George Washingtons day aswell. Franklin, Jefferson and Washington were not buying it and neither am I.

I will not trade my freedom for “security”. I will not sit down and shut up.

Some say “whats the difference I can’t change anything”. I say you can do more than you think but even if its futile at least you did your part. At least you did your duty. 

“A NATION OF SHEEP WILL BE GOVERNED BY WOLVES”  

Some of you need to wake up and take a stand. Are you Men or Mice?

YOUR SILENCE IS CONSENT!
