What many fail to recognize is that whenever a government body, at any level, takes over control of something in our lives, we LOSE CONTROL over that item or situation. It might seem like no big deal, or we may even invite the abdication. Maybe it is a new program, or a little more money “from the government.” When this happens (or even better, before it happens) ponder the words below from our 16th president. And remember, just because the government does something “on our behalf” does not make it moral, or right, or even acceptable.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence.
