John Stossel: We’d better learn to fight big government

Stossel makes a good point here – that he was doing stories on big government back at 20/20 and he believes that generally people don’t fight big government. We just let our liberties slip away until they are so far gone that getting them back seems overwhelming. So many people believe that the government is a benevolent entity that not only wants to take care of us, but that is the reason it exists. But John nailed it early on in the clip – that there are two ways of doing things: voluntary or by force. If the government is in control, it’s by force. And it’s that simple.



I know you guys get this, but it’s a good clip nevertheless:

Almost all you do is troll and I'm getting tired of it. I've warned you several times and you don't seem to get it. I really really don't want to ban you, but you continue to ignore my warnings. This IS your last warning. Either comment on the post or don't comment at all. If you want to talk about whatever, use the open threads. Thats what they are there for.
