That really is the question.

To increase the one, you have to limit the other. There’s no two ways about it.

If confronted with that choice, which one will you increase??

Naturally, there is only one sane answer. Yet, good, well-meaning, but horribly deceived and misled Americans are constantly choosing government over freedom and prosperity by their daily actions, behaviors – and voting patterns.

The reason is that nobody is being told that this is what the choice boils down to. The big – and going – lie from the government/corporate establishment is: “Hey, vote for us, and we’ll get you freedom and prosperity, too … uhh, … eventually, at least … I think!”

It’s the siren song of modern politics, and we are taking it all in as if it was a beautiful symphony. We smoked the establishment’s crack and believe we can fly as we jump out of a twntieth-floor window.

All that needs to happen for Americans to find their way again is to make it very clear to them that these two are incompatible. If you increase one, you MUST and WILL limit the other.


Freedom has never suffered more than during times when government power increased the most. Bush’s legacy is that he literally gutted Lady Liberty, more than any other president in US history, (short of maybe Lincoln, FDR, and Nixon), to the point at which she almost expired.

Her last hope is not Obama, it’s YOU.

Obama will absolutely not give up the power Bush has stolen and bequeathed to him; he will only wear a nicer smile as he cuts her heart out as well.

What will you do?

Will you finally take the shackles off of Lady Liberty and put them on your government, or will you stand by as she finally bleeds to death while she lies handcuffed on the floor, holding her spilling bowels in her hands?

The choice – as always – is yours.
