"There are a
thousand hacking at the branches of evil
to one who is striking at the root." (-Henry
And therein lies
the crux of the disease that plagues this
"Liberty Movement". Socialized healthcare,
out of control spending on every government
level, taxes upon taxes, blatant unconstitutional
actions, a worthless paper currency...
The list grows longer and longer. While
we're busy cutting off one branch, two
more spring up in its place. Thousands
stand on the sidelines extolling the virtues
of this or that political candidate, carrying
around a well-worn soap box that they
stand on to proudly denigrate the opposing
party. Meanwhile, hundreds of others quibble
over taxes, health care reform, cap and
trade, and a smattering of other issues
espoused by our federal government.
Do you feel futile
in your efforts, and powerless over the
ever-expanding cracks in the dam? Are
you tired of hacking at branches?
