Tyranny

Progressives and The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it.

“Unfortunately, common sense is just not common. We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.” -Councilman Jesse Dominguez

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our elected officials WOULD contemplate “is this Constitutional”? This is the elitism of the Democrat Party and it lines up with their ideology of collectivism and control.

A voice suffering from Government Tyranny – simply for being TEA Party – Part 1

Am on vacation this week – a “staycation” in doing errands as well as finally starting to approach the long list of “honey-do’s” (as well as long list of tasks of my own).  Both have long laid fallow resulting in, well, “the house suffering from benign neglect from blogging”.  A week won’t cut it down …
