The Myth of Limited Government Republican

Just a little thought and interesting read.

I read a lot of 'Republicans' on the board and I have one question: Are you a true Conservative or do you use the shell of the Republican party to push your view point and advocate bigger government?

A great visionary man through great insight and understanding. His work should be reflected upon and taught at schools.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. - GW

As American citizens fall asleep, our way of life is being sacrificed by the one's we elect. Greater good or good intentions is a folly as the same as no government. We the citizens have allowed the Federal government to become bigger than the Constitution. We need common sense solutions, not burden of over-regulation but at the same time we are a nation of laws, not anarchy. The fine line of action from government is always subjective and should always be watched.

Government should not be a catalyst but a provider of basic structure and order. The days of simplicity has been substituted for complexity, brilliant minds make things simpler not harder. Complexity spurred by Federal government has created discriminative barriers to progress through the assumption individuals make faulty decisions thus government needs to makes laws to prevent faulty outcomes. The transfer of individual responsibility to a collective society becomes what we all come to know as deadweight. The answer from government to the citizens about their decisions is: it is more complex than you understand or it is for your own good.

Understanding rhetoric and understanding reality is something most do not grasp. America has gone from the independent intellectual curious mind to the obedient intellectual-blinders mind. The irony is not, do we have enough info, for instance the internet, but do we understand what is truth. People look for narratives instead of facts and allow for bias to rule one's judgement just to have instant gratification. Media has played a huge role in this, whether it is Faux News or MSNBC. Schools have fallen down on educating. The days of critical thought has been replaced by in the box memorization. Why is that? (Rhetorical btw).



I leave with these quotes in mind:


The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.
John Adams

Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.
Patrick Henry, American colonial revolutionary

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Abraham Lincoln

Ben Franklin:

"The U. S. Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."

"The strictest law sometimes becomes the severest injustice."

Wrong side of Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch is something everyone should watch. It hit home for me because I lost a good friend to PTSD. When you get a chance give the video a view.

Training Terrorist sponsored by CIA

12 July 2014 - 05:49 PM

While most people turn a blind eye on understanding foreign policy in dealing with threats. Often forgotten are the questions, questions that target roots of the problem. Before tin foil hat jokes come in the way. What lead to 9/11 or any terrorist attacks and what was our role? Understanding history is essential and most would not remember the role the CIA played in the Middle East. When government says they can protect you, there is an alternative motive and something in motion. I am afraid many Americans are easily misled and lack the intellectual curiosity to discover truth. Journalism is slowly becoming a joke for profession that prefers strife/political bias instead truth. We forget the essential w's: what, where, when and why. America is slowly asleep but are you.
