If the www did not exist alot more things could've gotten passed through with as much as a peep.
Please for the sake of the nation let us not be at one another's throats. We will always have the power because Lady Liberty's Torch is bright
Germany was used as an example. It is awfully easy, though, to see all of these laws passing hidden inside of countless bills adding up to the
framework for tyranny. Sure, it's easy to laugh it all off, and say no one would ever do that here in America. Well, I bet if some dead Presidents
came back to life, they'd be amazed at some of the laws we've passed today, which take away rights that they enjoyed in the past.
Yeah, it's extreme to equate the law with Nazi Germany...but I feel that this law is extreme in it's neutering of free will. I don't ask the
government for hand outs, all I ask it to do is defend the country I live in, and protect a peaceful society. They are more than capable of doing
that with the taxes they take from my hard earned salary. So, why should the government ask me to serve when I disagree with the majority of it's
politicians in Washington, D.C.?
If some of you want to live in a society that controls what you do, and when you do it, then more power to you. If you want to support a government
that prints money with no value, terrorizes it's own citizens with it's own government organizations (I'll name just one, CIA), utilizes perpetual
war and colonialism to further it's own secret power plays, taxes it's citizens beyond what is necessary to function in the capacity it was created
by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and hides technology and advancements in research for the military industrial complex, then do so.
I don't have any problem telling you that I do not care about that government. I care about my family, and whether or not my local government can
protect them, and me. That is all, and that is all I ever expect.
It's not as if the government has been providing most of the advancements in society...it is a free society that has been doing that. The government
is there to protect that society, and it's advancements, not mold or control them.
