"The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases. – Thomas Jefferson"The program has been so popular in its first week that billion dollars has already been soaked up. Congress, in its infinite stupidity, has added another two billion dollars to the program.Oh joy.
But that's not the real reason for the update this week. No, the real reason is the website that the government has established to provide information on the Cash for Clunkers program: cars.gov. I am intentionally NOT providing a link because you REALLY don't want to go there.
WHAT IT IS: If you use the cars.gov site, your computer then is considered to become the property of the Federal Government and they assume the right to access anything and everything on that computer.
This is not an exaggeration.
This is not a scare tactic.
This is not a mis-reading or twisting of information to suit my own purposes.
"This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the US Government.
Any or all uses of this system and all files on ths system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT, and law enforcement personnel, as as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign."
WHY IT MATTERS: My simple goal for this weekly update is to highlight the news of the week that affects our freedom. I focus on the ways the government, (and their masters on Wall Street), steal our freedom by stealing our wealth. So, do I really need to spell out why this matters?
The federal government has now ceased to even pretend to be the servant of the people. They now treat us as slaves.
- They take our property when they want: cars.gov.
- They take our money when they want and give it to whomever they wish: the bank bailouts.
- They take our liberty when they want: habeus corpus is suspended for anyone suspected to be a “terrorist threat".
- They even take our lives whenever they want: Waco, Rudy Ridge and who knows what else that didn’t make the headlines.
First, refuse to use cars.gov. This is for your own protection. Tell everyone you know about this property grab by the government. Forward this link to your mailing list.
Second, make the decision today to be a free person and not a slave. A slave has only whatever freedom the master chooses to give it. If you acknowledge the government as your master, then you are already their slave.
But if you instead claim that your freedom belongs to you simply because you are human, and - most importantly - if you live that out, then you are a free man.
Just because they don’t use the terms “slave” and “master” doesn’t mean they don’t act as if they are the masters and we are the slaves. It doesn’t matter what they say, it matters what they do.
Freedom starts between your ears. No one can MAKE you be free, nor can you VOTE yourself freedom. You must choose to be free and then live that way. Starting today, choose to be free. Choose to live, think, work, act and play as a free person and not as a piece of property that the ruling class in Washington and Wall Street can move around and dispose of as they wish.
Do I sound like an extremist to you?
Perhaps I am. If so, I am in good company. A couple of quotes from Barry Goldwater.
"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away."
"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. "
Yours for Freedom...
