The Tyranny of Government

Leftists either understand quite deeply or haven't a clue as to the terribleness of the power of government.  Since there are all sorts of flavors and stripes of people, I don't doubt that there are both that push forth the need for more control of the People.

CA is probably the prime example of this.  But in the day and age of the Internet where massive amounts of data and information is available to a 5 year old, there is no excuse for those who are deluding into thinking that Government is the be all and end all to our suffering and problems.

Take this quote:

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first."
Also, this quote:
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
And this one:

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

The first and second quote was by  Thomas Jefferson.  The third by President George Washington.
