"A substantial number of Americans, perhaps a majority, believe that
government should dictate where people live, what their housing
structures should look like, and how they should be constructed.
They believe it is right for government to dictate what curriculum children
should study in school.
They believe it is right for government to dictate which land should be cultivated, and which land should not be touched by humans.
They believe it is right for government to dictate the kind of automobiles that are available for people to purchase.
Simply put, a substantial number of Americans believe it is right for
government to dictate how people should live.
They believe that government should 'engineer' society. How different is this modern
attitude from the belief system that led Americans into war to defeat
the Nazis' efforts to engineer society.
How different is this modern attitude from the belief system that led our founders to declare that the Creator, not government, endowed people with equal rights to
'...life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'
How different is this modern attitude from the notion that legitimate government is
empowered only by the consent of the governed.
Society has been successfully engineered to believe that the goal is no longer freedom, but the control of government, which means the control of society, to
fit the agenda of the controlling party.
The idea of entering public service as an elected official in order to limit the power of government, and maximize the freedom of individual citizens, is an
obsolete concept." —Henry Lamb
Mr Lamb is quite right except that it is a MAJORITY that believe in
the above instead of 'perhaps a majority' those of us that do believe
in the above are made out to be "moonbats" or "terrorist" or some
other unpatriotic name because we define FREEDOM as it SHOULD be.
