Congressman Ron Paul - Freedom From Government - Texas Straight Talk
dude they are free not to take the money.
Ron Paul is feeding you some nonsense here...
I gotta be honest. I've read a lot of your stuff and you are one of the first people who can articulate the need to control the size of government without either denouncing its importance or being particular with which parts you don't like. You seem to be fair across the board. And trust me, I'm no fan of faith based initiatives
The point was that once you get the money, forced or otherwise, you can expect the government to interfere with what you're trying to do. Private enterprise is always preferable to government subsidized enterprise.
yeah, thanks for getting me to reread this.
i guess this faith based stuff is a good idea after all, it can get the government into these religious organization and reprogram them.
Except that the government has no business getting into these religious organizations and reprogramming them. I'd prefer if they stuck to what they're authorized to do by the Constitution.
Where do you find the authorization for the government to even attempt such a thing?
Jefferson feared that religion would corrupt government, Madison feared that government would corrupt religion. They were both right.
I think this is the first post of yours I agree with.
