Make Mine Freedom (1948)

I recently reported on the rapid pace the American government has instituted of their takeover of the private sector. It did not receive much response. This is frightening because nothing short of our very essence as a nation is at stake. We are losing the America we were given by our forefathers and previous generations. We can see this if we chose to simply open our eyes to the truth. But perhaps we don’t deserve the America they left us, one that will soon be referred to in the past tense. I guess that will be decided much sooner than I ever dreamed because we have certainly picked up the pace.

So I will reprint the article below and challenge you all again as I did that day. But I still doubt anyone can show me a single government run program that is a success (or profitable). Screw political party labels. However, our private sector and free markets, when actually allowed to function without ridiculous government regulations and red tape...WORK!

I trust the people to spend their own money rather then the government to spend it. But hey, if you have some information about a program that I am unaware of by all means share it with us.



Aside from our collective protection (i.e. our military/police) name a program that our government has been in complete control of AND was a SUCCESS. Go ahead and take your time.

I don't really feel I need to say too much because I believe your lack of responses, at least lack of accurate responses, will say it all.

So why in Heaven's name are we allowing so much power to be turned over to the government? Banks? Car companies? Health-care? What's after that and where will the line be drawn?

All these programs and spending might have good intentions behind them and I'll give you that. But, for example, name a country where these have been done and actually worked? Why are we refusing to look to examples all around us to see if the paths we are trying will work out well? I don't see what is so complicated about that idea!

We have to wake up before we are fighting FOR our freedoms, rather than simply to PROTECT them.
