i wouldnt blame the government, if you want to blame someone blame those RUNNING the government. the government is just the machine that implements
THEIR policies, it does not come up with this crap on its own.
much like a gun when wielded by the wrong person bad thigns happen.
this thread should be called "the damn politicians" instead.
i notice how many people want to put the focus on government, not those who run it. simple yet highly effective diversionary tactic they use on
us...and i see people fall for it again.
pay attention to the quotes and find some for yourself. you'll see a common connection, a pattern if you will. they mention government, not those
who run it.
so lets reword a quote or two and see if they dont make a little more sense.
"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his
government." -Edward Abbey
"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against the politicians who lie to him." -Edward Abbey
woah! takes on a whole new meaning doesnt it? of course we could put in "the politicians who act in their own best interest" or "the politicians
who lie cheat and steal from him." or....well you get the idea.
here's another one.....
"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." -Barry Goldwater
"Politicians that make a government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." -Barry Goldwater
puts things into perspective doesnt it? after all dont the politicians run the government? dont they make the policies? dont they make the laws and
regulations? the government is neutral in all of this, it is just like a computer, doing whatever it is programmed to do, help the people or screw
down with the politicians!
