I’m reading a great book called Anatomy of the State. Shock: “We The People” aren’t the government and government is not for “We The People”.
Look no farther than the State of Illinois, now close to its second year of no budget. Mike Madigan is threatening 4 years of no budget because his district isn’t affected and he has a Republican to defeat so he can go back to the status quo.
Did “We The People” want this? Does Madigan care what we think? Not a chance.
Here’s the facts: Citizens invest their time and money learning a trade or obtaining skills, then they produce goods and services for other citizens. Government then steals part of their production. They will even use force and violence to obtain what they feel entitled to. Ever been visited by the IRS? The State of Illinois sends out 1st notices with a heading: Final notice before turning over for collection.
Obviously “We The People” are objects from which to extract money. Government targets groups ripe for exploitation and launches attacks simply because they can.
I will be proving that point soon!
I will also prove that violating the law to extract that money is immaterial to officials who could never qualify as “Public Servants”. Unfortunately those other “Public Servants” who are charged with enforcing the law rarely do.
I will also reveal that some “Public Servants” may see government as a way to enrich themselves. The obvious example is Hillary Clinton who claimed to be broke when she and Bill left the White House, together they are now worth an estimated $111 MILLION.
The local case isn’t that extreme, but sitting on a board with knowledge of what may be coming isn’t a license to profit for yourself.
One case is City, the other is County.
Maybe citizens will finally realize what LIMITED GOVERNMENT means.
Tell your friends, this is going to get good.
