We Think We’re Free. Newsflash: We’re Not

November 12, 2021 By Vince Coyner

Unconstitutional vax mandates have given Americans a glimpse into the control the government has—or thinks it has over our lives. But few have any idea how much the government is involved with their everyday lives. Most of us get up, go to work, and come home without the government ostensibly telling us when to do this or what we must feed our kids or when we must go to bed. We think we’re free, but we’re not. Just because stormtroopers aren’t standing in every doorway of your house doesn’t mean the government’s not there. It is in a million different ways, invisible by design, and often the stormtroopers are implied.

Not sure? Let’s take a journey of a day in the life of a typical American.

Of course, to get an encyclopedia’s worth of information there they print so small that people can’t read it, even if they wanted to. And to that, they add more online. This is driven primarily by government regulation and secondarily by manufacturers seeking to insulate themselves from lawsuits.............

Actually operating the business offers more regulations: Minimum wage laws, hiring regulations, overtime laws, union regulations, maternity laws, a phalanx of OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) rules and regulations, not to mention the mishmash of training requirements each state has. Everyone knows it takes years to get the education necessary to become a licensed doctor, lawyer, veterinarian, accountant, stockbroker, etc. But those white-collar jobs are far from the only ones that require licensing. In Georgia, in order to work as a hair “stylist,” one needs training and lots of it:.....

 Just because you don’t see the stormtroopers at your door doesn’t mean they aren’t there. They are. They’re just disguised as benevolent bureaucrats and politicians who are just trying to make your life better. In reality, they do just the opposite...........To Read More.....
