Ever wonder what is happening to your freedom, and question why the government is increasingly controlling your life and property, as well as attacking your constitutional rights?
Does talk with your friends center around why quality and service no longer seem a priority to countless businesses?
Do you question why taxpayers spend more money on education than all other countries in the world nevertheless deliver an educational system in which most children cannot read nor perform math at grade level? Similarly, why are young people being indoctrinated into believing that capitalism is evil and government is there to care for one and all?
I’m sure nearly everybody is aware that their local municipalities, counties, and states, like education and business, continually cast their autonomy and pride aside to join in a deadly feast at the federal buffet.
You need to look no further for the cause of such mayhem, than the power the federal government, bureaucrats, and politicians have over people, businesses, state and local governments, and organizations, when they distribute so-called “complimentary” money. It’s a tyrannical method that government discovered centuries ago, although perfected in the twentieth century. It’s a system of genius design; a pyramid scheme, involving simply printing (borrowing) money to dole out as if Christmas is eternal, and then waving a magic wand, so no one gets the bill.
At least, that’s the way politicians sell it. However, in due course, when the interest payments on the debt grow until collections of taxes no longer pay the bills, and fewer and fewer workers contribute to the treasury, the U.S. will become another Greece. Riots will ensue and those unfortunates, who believed government assurances of liquidity, will find empty pockets, empty bank accounts, and all those empty promises blowing in the wind. Every pyramid scheme runs out of other peoples’ money, and this one is no exception.
From sea to shining sea, and beyond, every American city and town, of all sizes, employ people whose primary assignments entail applying for grants, subsidies, or multitudes of other federal government money.
Similarly, thousands of school districts, organizations and businesses secure their place at the trough, squealing and clambering for their ‘at no cost, money.’
Remember the times when businesses ran their operations to make quality products, provide excellent service to their customers, and make a fair profit for themselves, and/or their stockholders. Likewise, being good neighbors and helping their community and nation thrive, were primary goals.
In present day ‘busybody government,’ countless business models connive (using thousands of lobbyists and political contributions) for government favors and how to collect from that grand, oversized money machine in Washington. Naturally, these corrupt business practices lead to near abandonment of their consumers, and results in restructuring business standards to satisfy Washington.
Worse, yet, their latest not-so-silent business partner is an all-powerful, meddling government. Consequently, it’s similar to taking money from the organized crime; they pull the strings and business dances. Since government runs nothing efficiently, or economically, this arrangement never works in the long run.
There was also a time in our country when municipalities took pride in being self-sufficient, self-reliant, and content to govern their affairs without outside interference or support.
Remember when schools and parents agreed with the Constitution that education was the purview of states, local governments, and the people? That was before the cabal between teacher unions, politicians, bureaucrats, leftwing intelligentsia, and publishing/computer companies, corrupted everything. Subsequently, the federal bureaucrats seized control of education, textbooks, and teaching, resulting in education crashing with an unceremonious thud of massive failure.
Once upon a time in America, people stood tall and independent. They revered their roots and were proud, rugged individualists with a strong sense of American exceptionalism. They took enormous pride in their work, their communities, and country. Supporting their families was paramount in their minds as they confronted the perils of life with grit and determination. These proud people produced generation after generation of patriotic, loyal, hardworking, and self-reliant Americans.
Thereupon, the federal government contrived its elaborate Ponzi scheme giving away money today and charging it to future generations.
Sadly, schools, businesses, organizations, municipalities, and people, willingly cede their individuality, liberty, and security to the government in exchange for grants, subsidies, or any of the other multitudes of largesse. The corrupting influence devastated a once free-thinking, proud people.
Naturally, with all federal money, comes oppressive dictates, regulations, mountains of paperwork, and enumerable cost for compliance. Acceptance of federal money is making a pact with the devil; pleasurable to the shortsighted, nevertheless, they both end up demanding your soul.
If you believe the government is out of control, and you fancy them out of your business, life, schools, or community, then stop asking for and taking the poison they flippantly call ‘free money.’ Acceptance comes with a lifetime of regulations, rules, and loss of liberty. In the government’s case, free is a dreadful price to pay. It’s changing our country into a dictatorship, and turning us into a whining, dependent, and unhealthy people.
These are our towns, our states, our country, our schools, our lives and the lives of our loved ones. Choose wisely, and tell the government to keep their poison-money; you choose to keep your independence.
