We are experiencing some very strange times. People are turning on one another over everything from race and religion to socio-economic status. Governments are waging wars against not just foreign governments, but their own citizens resulting in standoffs in suburban streets! Business acumen and entrepreneurship are being stifled by idiotic government regulations. Public officials who know nothing about wealth creation but everything about wealth theft are rewarded. Governments are becoming larger and are taking a much larger role in economies. So is the size of their debt. Corrupt public officials and crony capitalists are a hindrance to a thriving economy. They try to take the fruits of the industrious and transfer it to themselves and their crony supporters as entitlements. But, in the process they don’t see that are destroying the goose that lays the golden egg.
The two enemies of the people are criminals and Government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
– Thomas Jefferson
