within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Steel your Soul for what comes...
In Washington there is a common saying: Subsidize that which you want more and tax that which you want less. Every member of the Political Class, from Dog Catcher up understands the power.
It is the premise that offends.
Who are these people to determine of what we need more or less?
Is this the purpose of Government as ratified by our Founders?
"It's the parents' responsibility that have obese kids," said state Sen. Shane Cultra, R-Onarga. "I think you need to look at a bill to take the tax deduction away for their child if he's obese."
Why is there a tax deduction in the first place? Power, of course - the power to offer and the power to take. The power to control.
You'll notice the R after the State Senator's name. Liberty has no allies in the R party.
If you will be Free and at Liberty, you will make this happen by yourself. You may be lucky enough to stand at the shoulder of another who wants the same thing, but it is your responsibility to protect the ground beneath your feet.
You are outnumbered. You are out-gunned. You are also inhibited by a morality that does not afflict your enemies.

"You are outnumbered. You are out-gunned. You are also inhibited by a morality that does not afflict your enemies."
So, I'll die alone.
I've accepted that this is the ultimate price of claiming and defending liberty.
Peace through acceptance.
