Why Liberal-Progressives Drive Me Mad! (Or, Why I Fight for Freedom)

Welcome to Tony Island Blog!

I am currently reading a book about the "neverending" expansion of the social welfare net here in the United States. That got me to peruse some books about the Constitution (and Declaration of Independence) on Amazon.com. And that got me to thinking...how the hell can Liberal-Progressivess support the ever expanding Federal government?

If you read the history of the American Revolution, read the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, you can't help but be moved by it all. And see the very scary and ominous parallels between the British government of the 1770s and the US government of the late 20th/early 21st century. They are both tyrants, yet the Liberal-Progressives insist on making the Federal government bigger, more powerful, more tyrannical (mandated health insurance, anyone?).

Why? What exactly is their answer to "How big is too big?" when it comes to the power and breadth of the US government. When and where will it all end? When will the Liberal-Progressives be happy - and our Founding Fathers pemanently spinning in their graves?

I'm too scared to contemplate the answer - but the question is what drives me to stop them in their tracks.

If you're a Liberal-Progressive, feel free to comment below - I'd love to hear your lunancy. Not an L-P? Comment below any way!

Thanks for reading Tony Island Blog!
