GOVERNMENT IS NOT THE SOLUTION. GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM.
-Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States
Unfortunately at the present time many Americans have joined in the lock step march toward a socialist hell promised by intellectually bankrupt government officials. It’s as if Karl Marx, Max Engels, Leon Trotsky, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, etc. are still among us spreading poisonous propaganda based on grand solutions that can only come from Leviathan type government bureaucratic control capable of massive overreach that is nothing more than an unconstitutional breach of the liberty of the American people. Moreover the mainstream media mouthpieces of the liberal socialist hacks who are in government in Washington really don’t perceive this as a problem. While conservatives are vilified for being racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic, anti-women’s rights, etc., the media speaks on behalf of those who would ignore the constitution in favor of a new progressive socialist government.
