I forget which pundit said it, but tis true. When government dictates what a parent must do to a child, there are no limits to what government can and will do.

Lemme rephrase that

"We have reached the point where government believes it gets to play God." 

One sentence about the Robertson flap and I'm done; this particular comment is in an article on the Duck Commander nonsense, but is is true. Government believes it equal to God.

Disagree?

The death penalty. Abortion. Same gender marriage. Multiple partner marriage. Edward Snowden. The NSA. The federal health care requirement, a tax you pay simply for living. Business regulations out the wazoo! Forcing a photographer to take pictures. Forcing a baker to make a cake. Speed limits. Drug laws.

The simple fact is government believes it is better equipped to run your life than you are. This is a fault of both the major parties in power today. Both 'em propose and support legislation that restricts what you can do.

A lot of this revolves around offense. Someone gets offended. (read to the end, please) "There needs to be a law." A lot of this revolves around someone's notion of morals. "There needs to be a law." A lot of this revolves around what one person did. "There needs to be a law to prevent someone else from doing it."

Really? Why? Why must everyone be punished for something one person did?

The only reason is to build conformity. The only reason is to stamp out independence. The only reason is to stamp out reason and thought.

The only reason is to mold you into a non-thinking servile entity capable only of doing what you are told. If that sounds familiar, it is. George Orwell said it.

Period. You may argue against me. But reality says otherwise.

In case you wonder,  I am by no means an anarchist. I support laws. For instance, I support local zoning ordinances BECAUSE it is done at the local level. I believe murder is a crime and the person committing it should be jailed and in some circumstances killed. I believe child molesting is a crime and the offender should be hurled off a cliff.


An oversimplified version was stated by a (probably now dead) editor of mine - Your right to swing your fist ends at my nose.
