Stock Up!

I would advise stocking up sooner than later.

More From the Government Indoctrination Camps

"Parents in the Aspen School District may soon be able to choose whether their children will purchase lunch using a fingerprint-recognition system."[link]

Once again, let's "allow" the government to start "training" our children to expect and comply with violations of privacy at every turn. The younger you start 'em the easier it is to control them.

Being Un-Patriotic: From Their Own Mouths

Ok, you heard VP Biden say it. Paying taxes is the patriotic thing to do. So by their own (top Democratic officials) definition then Daschle [link], Geithner [different link], and Killifer [and yet a completely different link] are unpatriotic bums. Yet one, Geithner, will get to set tax codes and head the IRS. Luckily the other two will not (as of yet) be involved at the top of the administration.

Of course, in one way this makes perfectly logical sense. This is why we constantly hear the Dem's clamoring for more taxation, they just won't pay it anyway.

Legislating away rights in an attempt to curb crime (cough, cough, "BULLSH*T)

"It is the battle cry of the gun control movement, "More laws!"
Whenever there is a shooting death, armed robbery, accidental injury, etc., the gun grabbers come out in force and call for more stringent laws. As if one more law that restricts the rights of people who didn't break the law in the first place would have made a difference."[link]
A North Carolina minister, for example, thinks he has come up with the perfect solution to crime: require a license to purchase ammunition. "The purpose of good government is to pass laws that protect the public. And who in their right mind can defend criminals being able to have something that can kill people?" Rev. Melvin Whitley has said.[same link as before]

Ok I know I have created a blog faux-paux by linking twice(to the same link), but I did it for a reason, the first to get your attention, the second to point out via bold and underline an opinion.

This person is so ABSOLUTELY WRONG about the purpose of government. What surprises me is that a lot of people cannot answer this question in America, yet the answer is found in the Declaration of Independence, let me quote from it: "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."

So as we can see from our founding fathers that governments are instituted to secure our God given rights and see that none trample on them.
