"Only one institution in our nation maintains our freedoms and it is government." This from Comrade Reeder in a recent letter. Hmmm.
I believe the words are "We the people," not "us the government."
The current edition of our government has the IRS targeting conservatives, the CIA (which was instituted to operate outside the U.S.) investigating senators, increasing taxes, mandating that everyone buy health insurance or face fines (insert "more tax" here), an EPA destroying the coal industry (one quarter of West Virginia miners, over 13,000, will be out of work by October due to increasing regulations), and the total disregard for the security of our nation by ignoring laws and failing to secure our borders.
As far as the "retread argument", that 47 percent of the population doesn't pay taxes, it's still a valid argument.
Not only do they not pay taxes, they get refunds! They get free money, free food, free internet, free phones that I can't afford with full services, free cars, free housing, etc., etc.
Did you know that the top 1 percent pays 30 percent of the taxes, and the top 10 percent pays 68 percent? That sounds "progressive" to me. But that's the term all liberals and socialists use to indicate modern thought. But, keep harping away at the socialist progressive line and soon enough people will believe it.
Oh. Wait. They've elected Barack Obama twice and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (two of the richest people in Congress) have been elected numerous times.
I guess the line has been thrown and the fishes have been hooked. I'll stick with self-reliance, thank you. And maybe, just maybe, we can get our nation back from all these people, Comrade.
