100 Things I Hate About Government
John Stossel has put together an interesting list of 100 things I hate about government. It comes from a libertarian point of view so we as conservatives can agree with most of the points listed. There are a few social issues on the list that can be debated, but wouldn’t it be nice to have that debate with a reasonable libertarian instead of a fanatic liberal?
Check it out:
This week, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said the National Security Agency’s data mining violates our Fourth Amendment right to be “secure in their persons, houses, papers” and is “tyranny that our founders rebelled against.” Good for him.
In an op-ed, he adds, “We fought a revolution over issues like generalized warrants, where soldiers would go from house to house, searching anything they liked,” and wonders “which parts of the Constitution this government will next consider negotiable.” Good for him. I’m glad at least one senator reminds Big Government that our Constitution limits federal power.
And many libertarians are furious at this latest intrusion of “Big Brother.”
