I feel what you're saying, and definitely agree.
Does either side really fight for individual freedoms anymore?
What happened to "God given rights"? As in, rights that the government cannot allow, nor deny us - they are just a part of our existence.
Now we advocate for" the right" for our small group to be represented, or a different group be oppressed. These aren't rights at all... These are the anti thesis of liberty.
I do not need permission from the government to do as I please. ( within reason )
I do not need the government to stop others from doing things that I disagree with.
I do not need the government.
Everyone talks about reasonable regulation and environmental protection and social security and this and that... I say we should start at zero government involvement, then agree on some things..
Oh wait. That's called the constitution - but people have it in their heads that the constitution was designed specifically to represent their specific subjective stance on things.
What do we do?
