At some point, the federal government and it’s policies will have become bigger enemies of the American people than enemies foreign. What happens when that time comes will be interesting to observe.
Figuring all foreign countries as at least competitors, and not to say that literal "enemy" countries, such as the leadership of North Korea or Iran, are the measuring stick, I'd say the federal government grew past that stage about 80 or 90 years ago. Not that the parasites want to "kill" the people, but the feds sure do aim to control as much as possible (under the public radar, preferably), while milking the cream for the elite political class.
“At some point...”
That point done come and went.
I really think that time has come.
