The business of government is to make government larger and more involved in your life. Your obligation, whether you accept it or not, is to control it. Refusal to accept your obligation is agreement to be enslaved.
Your government’s response to you should be identical to that of this boxer’s. Otherwise, your hand and the rest of you is dogfood.
If you give the puppy the run of the house, then it will relieve itself everywhere except possibly where it sleeps. Unfortunately, years ago we did exactly that and now it believes it can relieve itself on us and everything around us and it bites the hand that feeds it.
Do we put it to sleep? Or, do we try to retrain it?
