According to PollingReport.com 64% of the population believe that the most eminent threat to our country is the growth of our government. Additionally, 58% believe that Washington DC has far too much power; of which I have to agree.
In fact the countries largest employer is the US government. They are hiring more people today, than any other time is history, which is why we see a massive surge of growth in the government. This ever-growing system gains enormous power over virtually every aspect of our lives: education, health care, transportation, energy, disaster relief, welfare, commerce, work and salary rules, and on and on. Not only that but the media has become government watch dogs, the justice department infringes on citizens rights, the IRS targets conservatives, the NSA illegally breaks the first and fourth amendment by spying on its citizens and rants about it; corruption is so widespread that it has become the norm. The tragic part is many Americans are so apathetic that they don’t even realize what is going on because it doesn’t effect them directly.
This is not the America our Founding Fathers envisioned, rather it’s an America headed for a horrifying future.
