Europeans immigrated to America because they were tired of monarchies and church hierarchies telling them what to do, and how to live their lives. They were tired of depending on others to defend them, and to arbitrarily decide what was right or wrong, and to arbitrarily decide who was worthy of forgiveness or punishment.
For nearly four centuries, that spirit was the driving force behind the lives and decisions of all of this nation's citizens.
No more. People are now refusing to take responsibility for themselves and their families. Want examples? How about the mother of four who called 911 because her 14 year old son wouldn't stop playing Grand Theft Auto? Or the Ohio mother who called the cops on her six year old for shoplifting? Or the Texas woman who called 911 because her husband wouldn't come eat dinner?
What happened to being willing to discipline your own children? What happened to "if you don't come eat what I fix, fix your own damn dinner when you feel like it--I'm going to go stay with my family"?
What happened to that sense of independence that wanted civil authorities to take care of, you know, actual crime, and not our private lives?
And people wonder why the government is allowed to take more and more power unto itself.
