As It Ever Was


This is a key fact that way, way too many Americans aren’t jiving with. Elected officials are our employees. They are performing a service for us, just like our dog groomers and our plumbers and our doctors and our lawyers and our barbers and our mechanics. But somehow politicians are the only ones we treat like our Masters, or at least let get away with acting like our Masters.

Look. If they are our employees, and we are their masters, than that would mean that the ultimate responsibility for their deeds lies with us. But most Americans vote for politicians (“hire” them) in order to avoid responsibility, not assume it.

In other words, they want to hire bosses because they are too stupid, lazy, greedy, or frightened to be the bosses themselves.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
