Government and liberty seldom coexist

LAUREL — Seemingly content to ignore the loss of self-rule and personal responsibility, the American people are realizing a surprising scenario, a bourgeoning truth few have fought to contest – that politically speaking, our republic is lurching toward the acceptance of a leviathan centralized authority.

Many Americans are concerned that the republic has finally reached a tipping point where a slim majority of voters will forever guarantee a dependent populace demanding a relationship with big government, ignoring the reality that government and liberty seldom coexist within the same sphere of influence. In fact, there exists a concern in conservative circles that the republic is slowly exchanging its birthright of liberty for the comforts, however delusory, of serfdom.
