This morning there was a large group having coffee - folks who can't always come have the day off for the Fourth of July celebration this weekend. This holiday has always been one of my favorites because we here in the colonies celebrate our independence from England. The early settlers in America did not want their lives run by some damn bureaucrat in England. Unfortunately we are losing the freedoms Americans have fought for for over 250 years - we are now losing our freedoms to the damn radical liberal bureaucrats in Washington!
If you think I'm just blowing smoke as a conservative, think again. Look what is going on around you and in Washington. When the government takes control of banks, insurance companies, and car companies then it's been taken away from the owners. Now government will dictate how much people can be paid, what cars to build, and how much money can be loaned and at what interest rate.
What is even more scary is this take-out continues with your health care and your home, cars, etc. With Cap & tax, the bureaucrats will tell you what kind of car you can buy through placing emission standards & fuel mileage mandated for new cars. The government will tell you what kid of house you can build and appliances you can buy through conservation standards. And God only knows what happens when government takes over health care and gives coverage to those who do not have it by taxing people who so. Let me ask you a simple question. If all of a sudden there are 30, 40, or 50 million more people with health coverage but the number of doctors and nurses has not changed, what do you think is going to happen? Long waits? Rationing? Or worse yet, some GD bureaucrat dictating who you can see, when you can see them, what treatments you can get, and in fact if you will get treatment at all.
Some of you may think I'm being an alarmist - it is you I'm afraid who just does not have a clue. Liberals want to control every aspect of your lives and make you more dependent on government than you may already be.Tell me, don't you think you should be able to decide what car you buy, what doctor you see, what treatment you get, and how you heat your home? With all of this over the top regulations, I can see the bureaucrats telling you how cool you can keep your house in the Summer or how warm in the Winter.
So with the Fourth of July being tomorrow I'd like to suggest you take time to think about all the freedoms you are losing. Unfortunately, I'm afraid you ain't seen nothing yet!
I've made myself ill - I think I'll have some ice cream while I'm still allowed!
