I just don’t understand what some people are thinking these days. Most Americans have completely lost sight of, or possibly never knew, what this country is about. The principles that our country were founded on are fairly simple and well documented, so there’s not really a good excuse for being unaware of them.
When my grandmother passed away I found a small booklet at her house that contained a copy of the founding fathers documents including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and other publications by them that give some background on their views. If you actually sit down and spend a few minutes (that’s literally all it takes) to read the Constitution and accompanying amendments, you immediately realize just how badly the Federal government has exceeded it’s authority and scope. We are all to blame for allowing it to happen, just as we will be to blame if we allow it to continue.
