Let's Remember that The Government is Our Servant NOT the Other Way Around
It would do us well to remember what 1776 was all about: The fact that those early Americans decided that the age old idea that the people were at the beck and call of the king, the ruler, the cleric, the landowner was wrong and immoral. They came up with the brilliant idea that government should be the servant of the people. Dr. John Lewis makes this point and reminds us that liberty has to be fought for and protected but that it seems that we are giving it up in order to be coddled and "taken care of" from the cradle to the grave.
