I find it highly ironic that the side that wants to grow a government
enormous enough to take care of everything, control everything, regulate
everything, provide everything, and crush everything thinks of
themselves as freedom fighters, while they say the side that wants to
make government smaller and less capable are dangerous statists… But I
suppose that’s why people came up the term “useful idiot.”

Honestly I don’t know how we are going to solve this problem. We have a large group of people who think they are entitled to other peoples property. They want the state to steal that property for them. I happen to agree with Heinlein that freedom is found on the frontier. Because you can uproot and leave when those seeking entitlements start showing up.
I do not understand how people think they are slaves while wanting the state to basically absorb them as property. My brain goes into an unhandled exception trying to understand that. I fear that no matter what there will be blood because they’re going to use force to take what they perceive as theirs. I spent part of my life earning what I have, and you are not going to take my life. Even the poorest in this country have it better than anyplace else in the world. For some reason luxuries have become “rights”, what the hell?
I’m going to stop because I feel myself wanting to rant. All I will say is this. Where the fuck is Galt’s Gulch? If you find it, let me know because I want to get away from these parasites. -B]
Update: Apparently I’m not alone.
