The Chain That Binds ME

God in heaven!

Can I last for another week?

Every political pronouncement from these candidates prompts me to step outside and wretch!

How dumb do they think we are?

Dumb and dumber, I suspect. We are to believe a “bailout” is a “rescue”!

How dare they refer to The Constitution! Both parties abandoned it long ago.

How dare they speak of “government of the people, by the people, and for the people”? Decades ago, we were relegated to the status of serfs with the “privilege” of voting.

Wow. I get to vote for their choices. Ain’t that a hoot!

Somehow, participation in a coercive system doesn’t smack of freedom to me.

Shay’s Rebellion and The Whiskey Rebellion signaled things to come.

Government is a necessary evil, given Adam’s impact. But, it is an evil which demands eternal vigilance on the part of the governed.

Never, for a moment, should we trust in government or those governing, be they believers or non-believers. We must call to mind the corrupting influence of government and its associated powers.

We need to chain them down with a written document enumerating their powers, and then resolutely refuse to grant them another link in the chain!

Oh, well…let me go outside and puke.

That’s the only realistic relief I can anticipate at the moment.

Come election day, there will be a host of additional links added to the chain that binds ME.
