In the Details- a response to 'Do you know what freedom is?'
This is a response to forward thought's recent post Do you know what freedom is?. Click to read the post.
In order for the government to become smaller however the average working american will have to understand the problem we face and the freedoms we lose if big government should have their way. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor doesn't always work especially when by doing so you kill the spirit of capitalism and entrepreneurship this country was founded on. 'Change' towards a more socialist country is not the direction this country needs to go in, but is the direction some of our leaders believe we must. I've always believed that if our government really wanted to help foster progress they could. We are lead by some of the smartest people on the planet but at the same time we (the american people) aren't guaranteed honest leadership. America is quickly heading towards a new era of governement where every aspect of our lifes will be touched by Government control. The scariest part of it all is that once the dust settles the average american would have been brainwashed to think that it was all for their own good. The devil is in the details.
