This Halloween, what do you fear?
I fear fear itself because when we are afraid, we willingly give away our freedoms.
Global warning? More power to the EPA!
9/11? Vote 100 to 0 to create a TSA!
Kids don’t learn? Common Core! …
… Government thrives on our fears. When we’re scared, politicians are always there, promising to protect us if we just give them more money and power. We usually do.
