Is it coincidence or design that this year’s calendar is the same as the calendar from the year 1776? This is a year when a light is finally shining brightly on our government, showing just how large, wasteful and corrupt it is; a year when there is a growing number of citizens standing up and saying enough is enough. State governments are making laws to protect the rights of their residents from an increasingly tyrannical national government, and our national representatives are holding hearings to determine where it all went wrong, who is responsible and how to fix it.

I think the fact that our calendar is the same as that of 1776 is no coincidence. While I also think the dishonorable people in the national government who are liars, thieves and lawbreakers need to be punished for their wrongdoing, what matters most is how we are going to fix it and the fact that it needs to be done now, not years or months from now. Frankly, previous hearings and elections have failed to produce the small, lean, constitutional republic for which our Founding Fathers fought.

By offering “programs and services” it was never constitutionally meant to provide and by making thousands of laws and regulations, our federal government has become too large, far more powerful than either our Founders or the Constitution ever intended. The national government has forgotten that we are citizens, not subjects, and unless it comes back into scale and only performs those duties expressly delineated in the Constitution, it should go the way of King George III. In that case, once again We the People will need to rise up and bring liberty, prosperity and honor back to these United States of America. Let them drink tea.
