Politicians want to control everything
After reading Mr. W. Royal Stokes’ letter listing the Democrats accomplishments I thought:
Whatever liberal Democrats disapprove of, they want banned, and whatever they approve of, they make mandatory. Democrat liberalism is an ideology that believes in control, not freedom. That’s why liberal Democrats love the federal government so much while they detest states’ rights. It allows them to bend hundreds of millions of people to their will with one imperial edict. It’s also why liberal judges don’t believe in the Constitution like conservative justices do. Sticking to one set of rules means people have freedom to do what they want as long as they adhere to the basic rules our society was formed around.
A fluid Constitution means you can put the force of law behind the whims of liberal judges.
Why was Barack Obama so insistent on listening in on your phone calls via NSA? Because if the government can’t watch you, it can’t tell you what to do. Of course it was for your own good, right?
I recently read that there are nearly 200,000 pages of federal regulations. Let me repeat that: there are nearly 200,000 pages of federal regulations. As a practical matter, what that means is that we’ve long since passed the point where any one human being could have an understanding of all our regulations
Remember the “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it” era? In fact, you probably did a dozen illegal things before breakfast without having a clue about it, which you’ll find out about the moment some liberal Democrat decides you have to be put in your place and looks for a way to do it.
Democrats control what you eat, what clothes you wear, what TV you watch, what kind of car you drive, what size soda you can drink, and even what toilet or light bulb you can use in your house. Complain about it and you’re accused of wanting to end restaurant inspections and safety standards that prevent cars from exploding. So, what is wrong with permanently fixing the number of regulations and dropping one every time a new one needs to be added? The only thing wrong with it would be that it wouldn’t allow Democrats to micromanage your life.
Democrats are happy to hand out food stamps, welfare, and school lunch programs. They love extending unemployment insurance benefits as long as possible. They’re big fans of people quitting their jobs and going on disability. Why? Because once you’re financially dependent on them, you’re like a dog on a leash. You’ll sleep in the doghouse, eat the Alpo, and roll over when your master says so in hopes that he’ll give you another treat.
Democrats believe we should have a populace that is controlled by the government, not a government that is controlled by the populace.
