Liberty cannot survive in anarchy. Government is a necessary evil but one we've grown too accustomed to expanding to fill our needs. The cost of government is more than taxes, it is the very freedoms you enjoy. We must be willing to sacrifice a little to ensure we gain the most. In fact, it's a capitalistic transaction.
However, there comes a point where too much government does nothing for your security and well being and in fact becomes harmful. We are well past that point already.
It's time to start remembering what made America the great nation it is. It's time to try to see past party lines and scale back the behemoth we've created in our federal government.
