It becomes clearer every day. Government’s real goal is to preserve itself. All the beautiful words about ‘taking care of the people” have nothing to do with what government becomes once installed. In the United States, all the beautiful words about the U.S. Constitution go away when the government itself is threatened by thinking people.
Thus, the fact that government bureaucracies, once created, cannot be destroyed. The solution to this problem is to prevent the creation of further government bureaucracies. No more czars, departments, departments, divisions, or systems within government, at the same time eliminating the majority of such existing bureaucracies. Therefore, LESS government.
Evidence of the real goal of government is most obvious in its reaction to laws allowing law-abiding citizens to own and carry weapons. Government bureaucrats stress that their issues relate to the safety of citizens. Of course, we all know that is not true. Correlational data shows that when law-abiding citizens carry weapons, crime rates decrease. The real reason that government opposes the issuance of carry permits is because an armed public can stand up against an out-of-control government. Government hates that.
I believe that Political Science 101 has taught us two things.
• First, if a government wants to maintain power, keep the people uneducated (see Taliban).
• Second, if a government wants to maintain power, keep the people unarmed (See Illinois).
Stupid people with no guns are weak and controllable. Smart people with guns cannot be controlled.
Lets be sure we stay smart and armed!
