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!
Crime up? Spend on police! (Or for leftists: increase welfare!)
Immigrants? Seal the border!
Ebola? More money and power for public health programs!
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.
