                                        Are YOU Anti-Government -

                     Are You For Less Government Or No Government


While trying to get my representative to listen to what I had to say about the unconstitutionality of the health care bill, I met up with a brick wall. And the main substance of that brick wall was the term anti-government. Whether Congresswoman Louise Slaughter really believed it of me or not, she made me out to be a right-wing anti-government nut.


Louise Slaughter clearly knew she could write me off as such and use that excuse for those who asked her about her reason for not listening to me and others like me. Try as I might, I could not get anyone to get through to her.


I took people in her office, into confidence and told them of the job that my own mother had retired from, a job with the federal government, in the very building that Louise Slaughter has an office in. I told them other things, like some about my household, to show them that we are as American as apple pie. But nothing I said mattered, because it didn't really matter if I was a nut or not. 

Slaughter only had to paint me as anti-government. This was easily done because so many conservatives openly claim to be. So I ask you, are you for less government, or are you actually for no government? Are you anti-government? If you are anti-government, please consider the following.

Our federal government was meant to be small and non-intrusive into our states' and our personal business. At this time it is a mess and not as our founding fathers intended it to be.  It is not protecting us from foreign invasions, while along with other take-overs, it is taking over our health care. It is allowing those who are to serve us, to instead, dictate to us and live as royalty on our dime. The last thing that we should be doing is pulling away from our government or acting as if we don't need or want a government to do the job that is supposed to be done.


We need to stand up to our government and take control of it. Being anti-government is basically saying that one is fearful of the government. We want our government to fear us, to realize that we can and will remove them. We should never retreat from our government. Nor should we ever say "no" to governing that actually is constitutional. It is not us against our government. It needs to be us for our government, for the taking back of our government. The people in our government are just people, just regular one pant-leg on at time, people.
