Sometimes we have to distill a message to really “get” it, but it’s best distilled only after getting as much information as possible about it. The more I read and study American history the more I’m convinced that my position is a correct one, and since it’s the position of Founding Fathers such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, I feel I’m on firm ground.
The entire current, and preeminent American issue truly comes down to the simple question of whether you believe the individual is sovereign, with the right to make peaceful choices for himself, or the government is sovereign and had the right to make decisions for the individual.
This is a truly strange proposition when you consider that many on the left who believe in big government, also ostensibly believe in “choice,” but apparently only when it comes to smoking dope or aborting a potential human being.
“That government is best which governs least.” Thomas Paine
