Letter to the Editor
Before the founding of the United States of America man lived under
a devised rule of kingships, dictatorships, military rule or a modified
rule of democracy, however, usually corrupt. These forms of rule were devised
by a self appointed elite who deemed themselves by some act of nature or
training more fit to manage the lives of others without their consent.
The birth of the United State of America changed all this. Through a foundation
based in the not only the Judeo Christian philosophy but also an
understanding of the great philosopher from Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Edmund
Burke and many others a form of self government was brought forth that
placed the powers of control in the peoples hands and limited what the
government could do.
Today we are seeing a return to a time before the creation of the United
States of America. Today we see an appointed few deeming themselves deserving
of this role with no regard for the founding principles of this great nation;
principles which are founded in the ideal of personal responsibility and
accountability. Our great experiment is slowly leading us down a road of
despotism and tyranny. Allowing government to provide you with everything
is also to allow government to take everything from you.
