"Commentary from the Countryside"
Thoughts on current events,
history, homesteading, preparedness, real food, and anything else I find interesting, from a cranky, middle-aged woman's common-sense perspective.

Ranting Again

The older and crankier I get, the more I resent government interference in my life. I realize that we need laws and law-keepers for society to exist, as we are all fallen and sinful creatures in need of rules . But there's a point where the government oversteps all reasonable boundaries and becomes burdensome, and it seems we have passed that point. The government should be concerned with securing our borders, not with controling our lives.

This last go-round with the current administration is a clear example of government run amok. They treat the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as mere trifles to be swept aside in the bid for control and power. Obamacare is wrong on so many levels! If you look at countries that have socialized medicine, it's clear it doesn't work. And this latest mandate, that religious organizations must violate their beliefs or face legal or prosecution sounds more like Nazi Germany than the United States of America. I haven't had health insurance for years, and as much as I would like to have help with medical expenses, I'd rather continue to go without, than be part of this administration's plan.

Here's a link to an article that explains it better than I can: http://www.breakpoint.org/bpcommentaries/entry/13/18734

It's going to take a lot of time and attention and effort on the part of us everyday folks who don't normally have the time or inclination to mess with politics to put a stop to the wholesale theft of our rights. Even the most remote, self-sufficient homestead won't be safe. It's time to rein in the congresscritters before we lose everything that makes America great.
