Ignorance Breeds A Socialistic Goverment

It's important to point out that government is not about voluntarism, never has been. George Washington understood the nature of government. "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." The fire is burning out of control. Americans have not heeded Washington's warning. Irresponsible action is the standard mode of operation for our government.
Americans have allowed themselves to become dependent on government in a variety of ways. These same Americans complain about high taxes. They resent the inevitable forced compliance. They fail to understand that socialism is always authoritarian. Freedom is about personal responsibility. Government's constitutional role is to protect freedom, not manage our lives. When government exceeds that role, freedom is diminished. Like gravity this is a law of nature that can't be overcome, no matter how promising the campaign speech. America is at a critical crossroad. Full scale totalitarian socialism of an unimaginable scale is on the horizon. Freedom loving Americans are frustrated by the lack of concern by so many. Ignorance has never been a virtue, in these perilous times it's a dangerous indulgence.
