Somethings Never Change-

As I heard the reiterations of the President last night trying to paint the Tea Party movement as those horrible “extremists”, my memory was piqued to a speech of long ago when I was but a teenager. Barry Goldwater during his acceptance speech used the phrase ” Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice”. Trying to live within the necessary limits needed in this countries spending is being labeled “extremism”. I see spending and having a bloated government as “extremism”.
It is extreme insanity to think that a few more dollars from those very rich tax payers are going to solve this problem. I would love to be one of those who have a corporate jet to fly me to all sorts of meetings. I wish it were me who was the oracle from Omaha, or I who created Windows, I am not, and what they make and their net worth is really none of my business.
I could be envious and jealous that they have somethings I don’t, but I would rather not covet my neighbors goods or life style for that matter. I don’t know exactly what I need to do to be like them.
Patrick Henry told us to give him liberty or give him death, King George was the all-powerful government that was depriving the colony from living free. Today we still have taxation without representation, regardless of how many times we ask these politicians to listen to us.
We are weighted down by a government that just keeps getting in the way of the American Spirit and Soul. It is addicted to spending our money and telling us how to live our lives. I ask for whom do they want us to live our lives for. I can remember as a little girl learning the phrase “it’s a free country”, I can’t use it today.
With all the “brilliant” minds in the world, I cannot believe they do not really have a clue about human nature. We can all look like lemmings for a time, but there are those who will say “don’t go over that cliff”. You cannot homogenized human beings and make us into robots, or bobble heads. It is suicide by government that is happening, with all those who think government is the answer to all their woes by redistribution of the producers wealth.

The Bible is still pertinent today: “What benefit will it be to you if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?” (Mark 8:36). “What good is it to control a person’s life when you take away their ability to live?” (me).

Washington sure needs my 12 Step Program.
