Do you remember when you watched Disney’s A Bug’s Life? And do you remember when Hopper (the bad grasshopper leader) threw a piece of grain at his minions and asked if that hurt. “Are you kidding me?” they joked back.
Then after a couple more of those measely grains, Hopper yanks off the “grain tap” and lets the grain bury his comrades. Then he says, “If one of those ants stands up then they all might stand up. Those ants outnumber us a hundred to one, and if they figure that out, there goes our way of life!”
That’s the way the government looks at us. They don’t care about the Constitution, our rights or us. All they care about is the “continuity of government”. That’s right – keeping their asses out of a sling and us content and under control. Why do you think you are seeing commercials funded by the government saying “fill out the census so your state gets the funding it deserves.”
A number of states have filed their Tenth Amendment states rights, and while I think that the vast majority of these measures will probably go nowhere, this is the first step in a long time of the Union saying no to Big Brother.
