Well…they’re right. And we are more threatened every day. And as usual, the threats are non-partisan. This is the power of the ruling elite over the rest of us. They make laws they don’t read or understand. Most of us never read them either. There are thousands upon thousands of pages every year, so how could we? Even if you did read them, they are unintelligible. This gives those who write them unfettered power to decide whether you are a lawbreaker or not. This is pure, raw power over the individual. And it is regularly abused. And people are increasingly aware and tired of it. This doesn’t bode well for our future. According to a new Pew Poll: “The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Jan. 9-13 among 1,502 adults, finds that 53% think that the federal government threatens their own personal rights and freedoms while 43% disagree.” James Madison warned us of this: “It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” We are long past this point.
