    We are in the midst of a new class warfare and our constitutional rights are eroding before our very eyes. The government has an ideological predilection toward egalitarianism — or forced equality. The president has stated in numerous interviews that he wants to “spread the wealth around.” His chief of staff ruminated that one should never “waste” a crisis. The administration is willing to shift tax burdens from some large groups to other small groups. The government thinks it can make poor people rich by making rich people poor. From this it follows that the government’s principal interest in using the TARP funds is acquisition of control: Control over bankers, over banks and over vast sectors of the economy.

    "We will all suffer before the government realizes that our financial prosperity has come from private, uninhibited initiative, not from Soviet-style central planning."

    The Constitution, which guarantees freedom of contract and denies the power of the government to take life, liberty, or property without due process (suing for it), is an obstacle for the government. Freedom is an obstacle for all governments. Thus, the administration will trample whatever constitutionally-guaranteed liberties it can get away with in order to acquire the power to re-order our lives so as to bring about its egalitarian vision for America.

    Unfortunately, we will all suffer before the government realizes that our financial prosperity has come from private, uninhibited initiative, not from Soviet-style central planning.

    And considering the election last Nov., there are enough sheeple in this country for the constitution to be shredded with impunity with nary a squeal from us.

    As long as Thur nite football is on, and there's a fridge full of Bud, all's well with the world!
