It's Time To Take a Stand and Fight Big Government

For those of you who are concerned about big government getting into every aspect of our lives the time has come to do something. You don't know what to do or how to get started? Read below then go to TIADaily.com

The passage of the health care bill has made the current political environment more serious and urgent than ever before. The vote on that bill demonstrated that it is not enough to mobilize massive public opposition to statism—that the Democrats will push it through anyway, with contempt for the views of the governed. They will do it because they regard opposition to their agenda as passing, temporary, and ultimately ineffectual. They believe they can shove through this legislation—and more, in whatever time they have remaining—and that once it is in place, it can never be rolled back. ..

If we don't prove them wrong, we are in very big trouble.

Just how big is demonstrated by the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, because she brings to the forefront the main issue of Barack Obama's presidency. As I wrote in the May 13 edition of TIA Daily:

This year, we are called upon to decide the most important political issue there is: are they any limits on the power of government?

We saw this in the health care debate, when Democratic congressmen were quizzed on the constitutionality of the law and answered with a collective shrug of indifference….

And now, with Elena Kagan, we discover that even the First Amendment is not safe, that Congress may also claim the power to censor our speech, should the "general welfare" dictate that the benefits of our freedom are outweighed by the "costs to society."

If there is a single theme to Obama's term in office so far, it is his attempt to break the last of the bonds that used to limit the power of government.

At the same time, however, there is also a lot of reason for hope. The primaries and special elections that have been held so far this year have been a bloodbath for incumbents, for the party establishment—of both parties—and especially for the appropriators, the politicians who are on the committees most directly responsible for runaway government spending...

It's time to get educated and to take a stand against BIG GOVERNMENT. Do you want to be told how to live your life from birth to death? Will you accept the high rate of taxation that is coming down the pike to pay for all this government intervention in our lives? Do you want to send most of your money to Washington for them to spend on welfare programs? You can start educating yourself at: Read the rest at TIADaily.com.
