Would Founding Fathers Accept Our Unlimited Government?
Our founding fathers would be horrified and deeply saddened by the unlimited, overbearing government that exists today in these United States of America. They fled England to get away from the type of government rule that America is headed for. They were fed up with being British subjects. They fought and died for a future where the government had a minimal impact on their lives.
Government’s Do It All Attitude Destroys
Our founding fathers never intended for the government to be an employer or an all-encompassing force with so much unlimited power. They wanted the responsibilities of elected representatives to be very limited so there would only be a need for a small government. A job in Congress was a part-time job not a position held until death. Imagine that!
Constitution, What Constitution?
Our founding fathers wanted government to protect individual liberty. They wanted the Constitution to be respected not spit on. The Constitution is to be preserved, protected, defended and abided by. The purpose of the military was to uphold national security; to secure our borders against foreign threats. And they wanted a monetary polity to maintain a sound currency. That’s it, liberty, military and monetary.
Our founding fathers would be disgusted by how current politicians have expanded their roles to the point where it’s impossible to have anything but a large government. They would be sickened by the way current government bureaucrats have watered down the Constitution to the point where it’s almost obsolete and nonexistent. They would fire politicians who want to eliminate the Constitution because it gets in their way.
They would be disheartened by the number of government entitlement programs in existence today. The America they created would not include a welfare state where more citizens are dependent upon the government for their basic needs than people paying in.
Tax Dollars Are Property Of Politicians
To use tax dollars any which way a politician sees fit regardless of the consequences to the American people would be seen by our founding fathers as criminal. And increasing taxes any time they choose to fund their pet projects is even more criminal. Our founding fathers would not recognize America today for it is not the country nor government that they envisioned. They probably would have returned to England if this was the country they would have to live in. How sad, their struggles were all for naught. Why have Americans allowed overcompensated, self-centered, egotistical bureaucrats to destroy their country?
