The Horrific Future of The United States

CONTROLAccording 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.

  1. I don’t understand. The word grows increasingly complex – and because of that increasing complexity, the government needs to add employees in order to address new problems. I don’t disagree that the government in the last sixty years (i.e., since WWII) has grown in ways that the Founders would have not predicted. What I don’t understand is why this is, de facto, a bad thing?

    • Because the bigger the government, the more control the government has. The massive growth of government is causing many small business to loose their companies. Thus making America more controllable because they are owned by the government. Once a majority of their people are employed through them, they can garnish wages at will. After all if most people work for them, and there is no competition, who’s to say they can’t lower the wages on the masses. Nothing! They can and history proves that this has happened before and is happening again.Take Greece for example, they are falling apart financially and the massive size of the government has alot to do with it.

      Additionally, big government is the enemy of liberty. Government actions that go beyond its defensive, rights-preserving functions necessarily entail some form of coercion that diminishes the freedom of at least some people to do what they would like to do. The bigger the government gets, the more it reduces liberty.

      Here is a quote from James Madison….
      “If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress. … Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.” –James Madison

      Sadly, this is exactly what we see today….

    Commented here on the “The Horrific Future of the United States.” I think the Tea Party position on growth of government is fascinating, even though I wholeheartedly disagree with it. The question that I have never quite had answered by a Tea Partier is why, exactly, the growth of government is a bad thing? I admit that certain economic inefficiencies can grow out of too much government interference. But certainly other social goods (equality, justice, progress, opportunity) can weigh against a totally anti-government stance.

    In other words, the question is a matter of degree. Everyone agree total government control is bad, just as everyone agrees that anarchy is bad. The question is what degree of government control is acceptable, and why.

  3. Unfortunately though, I believe that as Christians we have an obligation to submit to our government regardless of how corrupt they become. The only exception is with regards to sin and obedience to our God. Not always the most encouraging thing, I confess. But I have come to realize that God uses even the corrupt, imperfect and sinful to accomplish His means. Take a look at our parents; or even the cross and Pilate. This is where I find comfort; His sovereignty and goodness.

    • I agree, as long as it doesn’t go against our obedience to God. Mans law is not above Gods, BUT we are to submit to mans law as long as it doesn’t superseded Gods. We must submit. As Jesus did with Pilot, as David did with Saul. So I agree 100%… and with that in mind, I pray, pray, pray for the American government daily.

  4. Oh my Gosh, This is upsetting to say the least!! Obama is Guilty of Tyranny and most people are to scared to act!! ACT for America is Helping Educate the evils of Islam in the USA System! Brigitte Gabriel is a Christian and there website is ~> http://www.actforamerica.org/ … I get emails from them. We Need to Get on our Knees and Bring the USA back to God again!!

  5. Government is becoming our freedom and rights. Soon you will not be able to dialog with people you don’t agree with at work, in school, especially in government. We will become a complete socialist state where our government will be our conscience and guide. It will replace God.
