An Open Letter to a Fellow Citizen

By Kevin Mears

America has always been about "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness (and Property)." Our Nation was created to protect the Individual rights of Americans from any government that might oppress us. The Founding fathers understood; government that does not follow its Constitution or act in the best interest of its people becomes tyrannical.

Our Government has certain limits. Legislation can't make people morally better. The decision to be morally good has always been the choice of Individuals. Laws can't protect me from myself, and they shouldn't try. Ultimately, I am accountable for my own Safety and Well-Being. Yet every day we hear how government programs are failing. Our education system is failing. Social Security is broken. Medical costs continue to rise. Gas is constantly reaching new record highs. Taxes keep going up. And everywhere I go I hear " But how are we going to pay for all these "Social Programs." The reason these programs are failing isn't because they "don't have enough money."

The reason these programs fail is because they prevent and discourage competition of anyone who would be able to be able to provide a better service. If a business doesn't provide what a customer expects, they don't get money. If a business didn't have to worry about making money, they probably wouldn't be worried about being better than competitors. Government intervention in American Industries promotes a government monopoly, and therefore prevents innovation, entrepreneurship, and the very basis of the "American Dream."

Please act to protect Liberty, Property, and the Constitution.
