Judge Napolitano: Government and Fear - Fox News Video -

Judge Napolitano: Government and Fear - Fox News Video -
What's wrong with the government? What's wrong with the government is that we have come to expect too much from it. It takes too much of our wealth and suppresses too much of our freedom. It recognizes no limitations on its own powers and it believes that just because it does something, whatever it does is right and proper. It's too big, stops too much wealth, has a monopoly on forests and it's ever growing.
They sold this package of big government to the public by calling it progressive as if to suggest that this was progress. I like Professor Thomas Sowell's explanation of that word. He's remarked that the progressive income tax is progressive the way a disease is progressive: the longer it's around, the worse it gets.
At the end of the day, the government should fear us. Jefferson understood this well. He said that when the people fear the government, there is tyranny. But when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Judge when you're right you're right. Great monologue!
