Let’s see what’s in this pile of fresh news clippings… The state of Missouri has undercover agents to bust farmers for selling raw milk to “strangers”… The city of Chicago forces city employees to join a “wellness program” complete with “wellness goals” and “wellness activities” and inspections to make sure you aren’t cheating… The federal government, by executive order of the king–er, “president”–wants to force schools to enforce discipline on a racial quota basis…
City, state, federal… at all levels, our government is devouring us. Eating our freedom. You can’t have raw milk. You must do more jumping-jacks. The president will decide who gets suspended for throwing radiator parts at the classroom teacher, and who doesn’t.
Are you getting the picture?
Now, there is a simple solution to this problem–so simple, even a fantasy writer can tell you what it is. Ready?
Cut off the money!
You see, government does these things to us because government has too damn much of our money. Take the undercover agents on raw milk patrol. They have salaries, benefits, and pensions: the state will go on paying them until they’re planted in the ground.
Cut off the money. It’s as simple as that. Government does not have insufficient funds. It has too much. Squeeze them until they can’t squeeze back. Take away their power to do mischief.
