Better Choices

"We are helping people make better choices," is the progressive mantra for all their little pet projects that end up taking something away. Most Americans think that they could never take this or that away until it is gone. This little line has become the the euphemism for anytime they want to restrict you from doing something. It is not helping you to make a better choice, it is preventing you from making them. They will do this by any means necessary, even coercion. So the next time you hear those harmless little words, you may want to check and see if you still have your wallet.

Do you think I am overreacting, being a little too harsh? If you do, just take a look at the choices they have helped us to make. They took away smoking, candy, salt, guns, trans fats, soda, and made us have a calorie counter at fast food joints using that argument. Heck they are now going after chocolate milk in schools. Really? Chocolate Milk is bad?

You say you agree with some of these; never fear they will eventually get to something you like, they always do. It started with smoking and most people agreed and they didn't stand up. This is called getting the camel's nose under the tent and if your not careful you find that big nasty SOB sharing your sleeping bag. They just keep right on going and sooner or later it will reach you.

Martin Niemoeller, a German Protestant theologian said, "first they came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I was not a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade-unionists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade-unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."

You think I have went to far comparing the progressives to NAZI's? Do you really think the NAZI's just started taking people away. Of course not, they built up to it. It is only a matter of time before they trade in the inanimate objects for the animate ones. When will we speak up?
