Definition: To Govern

Some would like to believe that the role of government is to “help”.

The real goal of government is power.
And, of course, power is the result.

Those who govern gain power,
Sometimes through force;
Sometimes through gradual encroachment
On individual rights.

That is why,
In order for people to stay free,
We must keep government small
And never allow politicians
To take away our power.

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".
