Most of the folks reading this are of the Conservative persuasion. There are a couple of definitions for Conservatism. On is to maintain things the way they are and the other is to return to the way things were. Anyone who knows me knows that I am of the latter camp.
Over the past 150 years, we have spawned a class of politicians that is so ingrained in their own power that they truly believe that they are the only ones who can decide how we can live our lives. They have to decide what kind of cars we drive, how to raise our kids, how we can protect ourselves, and a whole list of restrictions on our lives too numerous to name here.
I’m not going to say too much in this posting but I do want you to take the time to view a couple of videos that really get to the heart of what I’m talking about. The first one is only a minute long statement by Walter Williams. The second will take you about 40 minutes and I urge you to take the time to watch it. This one is a speech by Tom Woods on Nullification. He really gets to the crux of a problem that has our country by the throat.
