Tomorrow is America’s birthday! Let’s not forget the principles this country was founded on. Principles that have created such freedom and prosperity that we all enjoy today.
And let’s not forget we must protect the ideas that got us here. Limited government for example; we don’t want a government with a myriad of regulation, laws, and rules that makes it constrictive for us to do things freely.
Groups of people we elect are supposed to make the laws. But with alarming speed, two trends in government have run amuck.
1) Presidents and Governors have issued so many “executive orders” that are not voted on by anyone. That’s not president or governor – that’s king. Our founding documents don’t say that one man can make laws by himself.
2) Agencies run by people who are appointed or hired make a tremendous quantity of rules and regulations. Whether it be the environment, labor, transportation, commerce, you name it – unelected people are making regulations. And the nature of any department is to grow their influence and expand their budgets and footprints in our lives.
We must notice what is going on, and speak up.
America wasn’t created by accident or by letting the human nature of benevolent leaders go unchecked. In fact, it was the opposite. The government must be checked by the people.
Every age in America has had its challenges. Our forefathers have largely done the right thing (eventually), and for that we are grateful. Now it’s our turn to protect it for our posterity.
