George Washington, wisely noted: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquent; it is force, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
Wonder what George, and Thomas, and Patrick, and John, and Ben and the other Founding Fathers of this country would think of how the Federal Government is continually encroaching into our lives and divesting us of our freedoms today? Would they sit back with their arms crossed and smugly say “We told you so”, or would they be convening a new Congressional Congress and resending the Declaration of Independence to the current crop of career politicians? Maybe they’d even be planning a new Tea Party! Oh, wait. Those have already started. Welcome back, George.
