A lot is being said about liberty these days, especially in terms of things like the TSA, Obamacare, and the Tea Party.  Many that argue for less government make the case that government control spoils things.

  • It does not bring the prosperity that it promises.
  • It provides no incentive to work.
  • It leads to moral corrosion.

And I don’t disagree with them, but…

Freedom and Accountability

Freedom– it’s what this country was founded on, and is what is also slipping away very quickly.  With every move of this current government we are losing freedom.

The problem is that, though everyone may agree on this premise, few will agree on what would restore it.  There are two very different opinions about what way to go in our current government, and they do not seem to be resolvable.

In my opinion, the best way to resolved these problems is to find something that we can agree on (that we wish to be free to practice our differences instead of being forced into doing something we don’t want to do), and find a way to rally enough people to the cause that we could actually get something accomplished.

Freedom From Religion

Again, if it wasn’t enough to remove monuments outside courthouses, the latest is this order from Houston that forbids a Bible to be displayed in a plaza in front of the main entrance of the courthouse. Clearly, no one was forced to read the Bible, or to go up to it to see that it was a Bible, and not the Koran or some other book. And yet, this is a “triumph” for religious liberty? How is that? Citizens were denied the right to freely exercise their religion. The next thing you know Churches will have to take crosses or their signs down because it offends the driver of the car going by!
