Achtung, Baby: Are People Being Encouraged to Rat On ‘Anti-Government’ Neighbors?

Written by Doug Giles on May 6, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-05-05 at 4.41.21 PMWould good ol’ Sheriff Ric be talkin’ about anti-government sentiments like this?:

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which, if acted on, would save one-half the wars of the world.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

I’m guessing such statements in our repulsively pussified state of big government blandness would be an affront to the sensibilities of the statist and would therefore warrant a little knock-knock on the door of the purveyor of such sentiments, eh?

The only problem with confronting the gentleman who said all of that “anti-government” stuff is that he is dead. Yep, he died. Who was he?

His name is Thomas Jefferson and his game, for the public schoolies who missed American History, was: An American Founding Father, Mr. Jefferson was chief author of the Declaration of Independence (1776) and served as third President of the United States (1801–1809). He was a member of the Continental Congress in the early days of the American Revolution, representing Virginia. He then served as a wartime Governor of Virginia (1779–1781). At war’s end, from mid-1784,  Jefferson was stationed in Paris as a diplomat. He was appointed the United States Minister to France in May 1785.

If Floridians would like to see this egregious breach of our civil liberties die before it is enacted, drop our good governor Rick Scott an email and tell him … uh … um … no thanks. This eerie edict will be enacted unless Governor Scott says no and puts a veto in place. You may also reach him via Twitter @FLGovScott.
