I saw this article from November, 2013 and I was mostly through it cheering before I realized it was written by Charlie Daniels. Normally I’m aware of his writings when I read them. But at least you will know in advance who wrote it. It is all the more true now. A few selected excerpts:
The government that was founded to serve the people has turned the equation around and now they believe that the people are supposed to serve the government. That we should be willing to put up with whatever taxes they choose to levy, to abide by every ridiculous rule or regulation their bureaucratic little minds can conceive and allow them to regulate every facet of our lives…while they live above the law out of the clutches of Obamacare and shrinking retirement plans.
They pass out billions of dollars in contracts to their political allies and subsidize companies that have no hope of succeeding while they exempt those they choose from the programs they’re forcing the rest of the country into.
They can hire thousands of agents to enforce their will on the public.
They can forsake Americans in the Foreign Service – leave them to die without even attempting to rescue them.
They can look into a television camera and lie with a straight face.
Amidst all this passivity, however, there is great frustration, a smoldering, white-hot anger that only awaits a rallying point to ignite and become the most motivated political force in this nation.
If there has ever been a time in the history of this country for a true leader to step forth, it is now.
This was worth going back to read, in the context of when it was written of course. But since then, even more has been exposed about this cauldron of corruption going on.
Is it any wonder now, a few years later, the way the election process has unfolded?
