Do American citizens want liberty?

Government is the problem, not the solution, said former President Ronald Regan. Actually, the problem is nobody realizes that government is the problem because they’re so busy trying to navigate through the problems created by government. For most Americans, interactions with government are an unwanted problem, not as source of help. They have to fight red tape to start a business, comply with costly but pointless regulations and cough up more in taxes and fees.
Governments will only act in their own self-interest, which is to preserve the government class by convincing voters that only
government can clean up the problems of government.
Governments are always searching for a problem to solve even if they have to create it. The solutions to these dangerous and previously unknown problems always require more money, more government authority and intrusion into our lives resulting in additional loss of individual rights. Anyone paying attention to government actions understands that the real mission of government is to control the tax victims.
Too many Americans depend on government money from programs the Constitution doesn’t permit. The rank and file doesn’t understand the Constitution, but they understand government checks with their names on them, and money speaks with influence beyond comparison. Free money, for those receiving it, isn’t a problem but it certainly is for
those who are ordered to provide it.
For years politicians have used an effective three-step plan to manipulate voters into accepting laws they would reject if presented through the normal legislative process. Make no mistake; all unconstitutional laws accepted by the Supreme Court are problems that affect the working middle class in a negative way.
First, create or identify a problem. Second, inflate the problem using the media. Third, offer the pre-determined change they wanted to implement as the solution. In other words plan the change then manufacture a problem that requires a pre-determined solution to solve a problem that did not exist. We have untold numbers of government agencies extorting hundreds of billions of dollars from the tax victims, staffed by huge numbers of government employees supposedly working to solve government created problems that are never solved.
To advance their self-appointed role as the nation’s only problem solver, governments have brainwashed the people to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule and government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. The notion that a governmental solution exists for every human problem cultivates this nonsense. Government rulers dismiss America’s liberties because they aim to replace them with their own dominance. Since their hunger for power has no limit, they can’t stop. What’s going to happen when we have no more freedoms that can be taken away, and the politicians and bureaucrats still crave more?
Through regulations, taxation, inflation of the money supply, and the death of the free market economy our government controlled economy is nothing but a massive drain on individual success. The situation has become deeply dangerous for the future of freedom in this country, with young people unable to find jobs, opportunities destroyed in the private sector and countless regulations that reflect a Soviet-style central plan. The question becomes, do the American people really want liberty and constitutional government?
