“Freedom”, Monterey Herald – July 11, 2023
Our founders envisioned a limited government where our federal state and local governments were held to a high standard by their constituents. In fact, they said the elected only serve as public servants. Ask yourselves. How long ago did we as a citizenry subjugate ourselves to our leaders? P.S. They are not our leaders. We are 320 million people being controlled by 535 people. Wake up, folks. A populace in fear of the government represents tyranny. A government in fear of the populace represents freedom. Tolerance is the indulgence of a person without convictions. We are about to lose it, friends. The wolves are at the door. From both within and without.
