BIG GOVERNMENT—Do we really need more laws?

I was at work this morning and I saw on the TV that the federal government is going to in act a federal law to guard against child drowning. I stood there for a minute and thought about what I had just heard. I walked away stunned at that piece of news, but not surprised.

Our federal government is growing at leaps and bounds and they are creating law after law after law. That’s all that we need in this country is more laws to add to the thousands that we already have. Where does it end? Big government has a hand in everything; they are in our bedrooms, they tell us how to raise our kids and on and on and on.

When are we as a society going to say enough is enough? When are we going to stand up and fight for limited government? When are we going to get away from this entitlement mentality? When are we going to understand that the government can’t solve all our problems? Problems get solved when normal people like you and me come together to solve life’s issues.

Do we really need a federal law to limit the amount of child drownings? Here’s a thought, how about parents taking responsibility for there children to insure their safety. If you put the government in charge of your child’s safety you are giving up a little more of your freedom. I don’t know about you, but I would like to be free to make my own discussions and to govern myself based on my own moral code.

If we don’t wake up NOW, we will have things like socialized medicine, an out of control illegal immigrant problem (oops, already have it) and unlimited government interference.

These are my thoughts; what are yours?
