Freedom Loving Americans claim that the founders would not agree with very much of what is happening in our government today. Most Freedom Loving Americans understand the revolution was fought by people who were freer than we are today. Everything our government is today is the antithesis of what our founders established. Our founders warned us about the evils of big government; those very evils that enslave us today.
Here is what the founders said:
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicity. --Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address.
History, in general, only informs us what bad government is.
- Thomas Jefferson
If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare... they may appoint teachers in every state... The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.
- James Madison
Today we have a force that has refused to read history, a force that refuses to understand the very principles that made this nation the envy of the world, not because of our military or economic power, but because of our belief that man is at his best when he is self-reliant, and a country is at its best when it stands on the rule of law. This destructive force believes in the benevolence of power, the prosperity of enslavement, and the goodness of evil. This force, the force of Marist/Progressives is today embedded in our government and our country. This force believes it can defy the inevitable destruction that is inherent in the very foundation of their philosophy. Their philosophy says all long established principles, all religion, and all morality should be abolished. The philosophy further states that the individuality, the independence, and the freedom of man should be abolished. This philosophy of Obama and the Marxist/Progressives is anti-American and is the process of destroying a great and a free country.
