Government Should Fear You...

... You should not fear Government.

_

Speaking to many different people from several different walks of life these last few weeks I have noticed a recurring theme... fear. That is when I start to wonder what ever happened to that "hope" that Os... Obama had promised us. That is when I start to wonder why people are so paralyzed with fear when it comes to their government. Why have "We the People" become the peasants to the elite few atop capitol hill?
_
While on vacation, yes... I the Grand Fubba (PH-OO-BA) took a nice long vacation, I had the pleasure of experiencing Fear.net on cable. An entire station programed to the sublime emotion of fear. Proof that people like to feel like they are in some way helpless. At least when it comes to the things we can't control... this is usually limited to the fantasy things like zombies and monsters. Yet thusly this got me wondering why "We the People" seem to enjoy this wretched emotion?
_
Thusly I propose that we do the unthinkable... stop fearing our government and start demanding that it fear us.
_
No longer should we blindly accept that the government is an authority that we as citizens can not challenge. We should never believe that the checks and balances in the system are enough to keep our rights and way of life safe. Instead we should demand that those who volunteered for "civil service" actually serve the citizens of this nation.
_
We are not China. We are not Russia. We are not European. Nor are we a nation in which socialism is acceptable. Therefore it is unacceptable that the government demand us to buy into a "public option" style health system. Therefore it is unacceptable for our government to dictate what we do and how we do it for any reason (especially the global warming hoax).
_
Pushed too far and for far too long, this society in which we live is bound to break. Decent law abiding citizens can only stomach so much for so long before they too join the ranks of the Democrat jackboots or fall under the shade of the Alder. But any way you look at this, we are rapidly headed for a country more deeply divided than it was at the time of the first Civil War. And the fight of words will have to end at some point.
_
Some historians say that world war two was not just one massive war but a collection of small individual wars. It is true that the fighting didn't just break out with one massive surge by the Nazis or the Japanese Empire. No, the second world war was begun with small fierce battles. And so has this new war between fascism and freedom.
_
All I, the Grand Fubba, am asking is that "We the People" start speaking out before this divide between us reaches the point that it is suddenly unreconcilable. We need to begin demanding from our government what it has always been constitutionally obligated to do all along... serve us, protect us, and get out of our way.
