    I suggest everyone watch this. All the bickering going on here and in the country . . . this isn't about Rep vs. Dem, which many on here have pointed out. It's about big government (BOTH Rep and Dem) vs the U.S. citizen. Yet all I see is "yeah, but Bush" or "yeah but Obama is worse" (I'm guilty of it too).

    The sooner we understand that what this country was founded on and our liberty is what's at stake then maybe the sooner both sides can come together as citizens and fight the real fight . . . . Washington D.C. and government.

    You're absolutely right but are you just gonna give up or are you willing to fight? We are in a civil war in this country . . . . one side for liberty and the foundations on which this country was built and the other side for governmentism.

    Americans love big government. The bigger, the better. From the founding of the country through this minute, we look to government to fix the problems we face. And why shouldn't we? Big Government is the most effective way to fix them. It's got the power to do what has to be done and the power to make it stick. Remember, a government big enough to give us what we want is a government big enough to crush anyone who gets in its way...and that's the way it should be.

    You think these big government stooges care?

    They want the nanny state, look at them lap it up, demand it and pray for it.

    They practically creamed themselves when Barry signed away more of their freedoms yesterday.

    You're absolutely right. Good post. America was built on the idea of being a free country, with little direct government control. The bigger the government the less freedom we have. Government needs to be cut down to a mere shadow of its current state. Hell's bells, if we dumped about 2/3 of the current government employees we'd have enough money to get us out of debt and the government would run better. Employees would actually have to work for a living (and I say that as a former government employee). The waste is incredible. We could also do away with a lot of these current agencies and departments.

    This is a war, in a sense - we need to ask ourselves if we want to remain a free country or whether we want to be enslaved to government ownership.
