A False Sense of Government

capitol_dollars_rectWhen a child is convinced that it his wealthy Daddy who controls everything that child will concede to his Daddy to obtain those things he desires. As that child grows and learns of the many freedoms and experiences he was not privileged to while living under the control of the influential Dad he slowly becomes vengeful and has many regrets. Daddy says, “You don’t have to do anything but follow my rules and you will never want for anything”. But son wants what Daddy can’t bring. Freedom to make choices and find his own way through life.

Where there is great wealth there is also great control. This arena does not belong to government. When people become dependent on government to meet their needs it doesn’t take long before they learn the cost of the money they accept. The very same money they receive is the same money that is taken from others. It never works. In a free society people give and receive under a moral code of love. With control follows hate.

When people are free to make their own choices you see the best in them shine through. Freedom mean that we can make those choices as long as it doesn’t infringe upon another’s right to freedom.

The feds dictate the rules the States. The States dictate the rules to the counties, cities and towns. All children want Daddy’s money while Daddy takes the money from his children to redistribute to those who follow Daddy’s rules.
