Government Become more Intrusive in Our Daily Lives
Do you remember when you could travel around the country and even out of the country to certain destinations without a passport? What about being able to decide what type of light bulb to put in your lamp? Heck I even remember when we would be able to decide for ourselves if we wanted to put on a seat belt when we drove. But these and many other decisions that one was left to an individual is now made for many of us by a bureaucrat or politician in local, state, and national government.
Hey do you want farmers to use their corn crops to feed livestock and humans instead of being used in your gas tank as a fuel additive? Well you will have to take your case to EPA and ask for a wavier. That is what the Governor of Arkansas is doing so that he can offset some of the cost increases that expected in food stuffs related to corn as a result of this summer’s droughts.
Are you going to use breast milk to feed your new born? Well if you live in New York city you better or Nanny Bloomberg (a.k.a Mayor Michael Bloomberg) will browbeat you to do so in a new mandate he has imposed on New York Hospitals. This latest action by Bloomberg called “Latch on NYC” pressured many hospitals in the NYC area to put baby formula under lock and key and push breast feeding as the only way to feed a new born. Now, I agree I would rather a mother breast feed as it is much healther than the majority of baby formulas that are filled with corn syrup. But this is not something that the government should get involved with it is a personal choice that should be made by the parents. As of right now 27 out of the 40 hospitals in New York City have surrendered to Master Bloomberg’s wishes.
Do you want to have the choice to drink water without fluoride? Well too bad if you live in a community that forces public water on you instead of individuality wells. Even though there have been numerous studies one recently being done by Harvard showing the adverse effects on IQ’s in children. Should you be the one to determine what is good for your children? Also, since fluoride is considered a drug wouldn’t it be better to be prescribed by a dentist then just putting it in the water, toothpaste, and other products and hope we don’t over dose on it?
Well these are just some of the examples of the government making decisions for us. Don’t you think you have a better idea of what is good for you then some idiot in a suit who has never meet you? This is what government is and when left unchecked it goes into more and more of your life making decisions for you and your family.
