Huh? "I will not share my political opinions widely nor loudly. Not because
I do not care about who is elected, but because I care more about preserving the
freedom to choose." So voicing your concerns aloud, putting out signs in
the yard, trying to educate others about government and the people involved is
somehow not caring about preserving the freedom to choose? I believe that is
naïve. Our freedom to vote in this country has been challenged on many
occasions. Even your right to vote as a woman came about because many
sacrificed, risked reticule of others, wore signs and voiced out loud and strong
that this needed to change. As Ronald Reagan put it: Freedom is
never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to
our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on
for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our
children and our children's children what it was once like in the United
States where men were free.'We are in that situation NOW.
Captain Moroni did have a yard sign and was vocal.
Vote for freedom? What does that mean? If you vote for bigger government role
to tell you what you can and cannot do. What you should and shouldn't do.
How much you can make, how much you should donate....is that freedom?Is freedom not having government at all? Allowing those that are the most
powerful and have the ability to subdue others to their will.Is
freedom finding the right balance between government and choosing your own
destiny? Where government protects your rights and freedoms, but allows you to
make as much money or as little as you want. A government that doesn't tell
you what you can or cannot buy. A government that serves the people and not
special interest groups.This is the great American experiment with
freedom. Hopefully, we allow ourselves to free ourselves of over protective,
nurturing and caring government. Which has increased our national debt and
deficit to unbelievable levels. And find a better balance of government that
consumes less taxes, gives us enough services that we can find our own paths,
and find a way to pay down the debt.
