What, if anything, does this mean to you? Where do you find this particularly applicable in the current state of things?

It's like President Reagan said, As government expands, liberty contracts.
He also said, The federal government has taken too much tax money from the people, too much authority from the States, and too much liberty with the Constitution.
Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem.
Obama needs to study up on President Reagan.

When you relinquish your ability to provide for your own needs (food, clothing, housing, medical, transportation) and the gov. is the entity that is responsible for these basic needs, the gov. then holds the power and is able to control and manipulate you. They can withhold food, put us in the smallest of shelters, deny medical care, allow/deny movement and more. Oh, this can't happen, really? Check the conditions in the USSR from Stalin to the fall of the government. Check out China. That is what government strong enough to provide for your needs can do. No thank you. I would rather go without and have to figure out a way to acquire these things on my own through my hard work than have the gov. "give" them to me. Nothing is free. Nothing. You will pay a price that I don't think you are prepared to pay.

hotmama:..........so the statement is meaning less to me.
I didn't vote you down, but I think you were probably fine until you said this. That is my guess anyway.
