Let us remember who we are and where we come from. Let us remember that the whole point of America is to empower the individual by restraining the government. Big government is not progressive. It represents a regression to an earlier, less free time. A high tax rate is not progressive. What is slavery, if not a 100% tax rate?
Our ancestors came here to escape the oppressive regimes of the Old World. Thats why they called it the New World. If we allow an oppressive regime to be established here, we will be insulting the memory of our ancestors. Even worse, we will be condemning our descendants to oppression. That would be unforgivable.
Before it is too late, let us reconnect with our roots. Let us recall that the Constitution is an actual document, not the latest whim of an official. Let us study the key words of the Declaration of Independence before we presume to quote it in public.
And let us remember all the words that the Lord told Moses to say to pharaoh: Let my people go, that they may serve me. No, not serve the state. Thats what people did in Egypt. If we go back there voluntarily, we will deserve to be slaves.

tyranny, whether by the butt of a gun, point of a sword, or the yoke of the tax man is still tyranny.
to stand against tyranny, is to set yourself to be cast as an outlaw by opposing the decree of those in power.
to not stand against it, would be to accept enslavement.
live free as a slave or fight.
the choice... is yours.
Good read. Especially:
“He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”
