Statists Really Do Believe That They Are the Golden Ones From Whom All Blessings Flow

Ronald Reagan - here to help

Statists really do believe that they are the Golden Ones from whom all blessings flow (wonder how many will get THAT reference!). Bernie, AOC, and the other Democrat Socialists who believe that Govt does have such powers just can’t conceive of the terror that Reagan brought up with those words.

For all the good things that Govt can do, SHOULD it be doing them in the first place?

And for all the bad things, we know it should not be happening at all.

It’s what happens when mission-creep sets in at a given bureau, department, or the mindset of the bureaucrats within. It’s what happens when elected representatives decided that they have the power to run our lives by a push of a button from their seats and a stroke of a pen.

When did mere Representatives morph into Rulers who believe they are helping? Especially those that have written laws that have declared that they get to live by a different set of rules than what they lay down for the rest of us?

Sorry, for me, the biggest help that the Federal Govt could do for me would be to relearn how to live within the strictures of our Constitutions. And try to keep this in mind when they think that they are “all that and more”:

Govt can't even stop a telemarketer

Hubris won’t allow them to recognize the humility needed to simply allow the thought “perhaps we should just let adults live their own lives without tossing them to and fro?”

I betcha this will get me onto a list somewhere.

/rant. Er, no, there’s plenty more where that came from…
