When Will Government Get Out Of Our Lives?—Socialism In Clear View
Above is a picture I took two days ago in Cincinnati’s Eden Park.
Look at all the ways government intrudes in our lives.
Government tells us we are at the corner of Alpine and St. Paul.
Maybe we feel we are someplace else.
The government just wants us to think we are at the corner of Alpine and St. Paul.
Government tells us this is a one way street.
What about hard-working, English-speaking, tax-paying Americans who want to go another way down this street?
First they tell us what we can do in our very own cars. Next they will harvest our organs for a United Nations organ bank.
The government wants us to stop at a certain place on the road.
What if this is not the place we wish to stop?
Should not free citizens be able to employ their superior knowledge of traffic management to know just the right place where they should stop?
Government says we can not turn left between noon and ten on Sunday.
Where is that restriction in the Constitution?
Sunday is the sabbath. What if God directs me to turn left at Alpine and St. Paul in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday?
If you look at the top of the stone wall near the pole of the traffic sign, you see that the stone wall was built by the New Deal Works Progress Administration in 1941.
When will the Cincinnati Tea Party come to tear down this wall and build a new one with citizen-volunteer labor?
How have the people of Cincnnati allowed this socialism to stand in clear view for 70 years?
When will government get out of our lives?

Welcome To Texas Liberal
Texas Liberal is a blog of politics and political history.
My name is Neil Aquino. Here is my profile.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional focuses of the blog are books, art, poetry, personal relationships and, also, sea life and marine mammals.
( The picture above is of the Houston Ship Channel. A narrow channel can lead to a wide sea.)
The signature post of this blog is the Martin Luther King Reading & Reference List. This list is the best of it’s kind on the web.
Another good post is my reciting the words to the Shaker hymn Simple Gifts on Galveston Island, Texas as a ship passes behind.
I live in Houston, Texas and I do sometimes write about political issues in Houston and in Texas.
I also often write about my former hometown of Cincinnati, and about the great beach city of Galveston, Texas.
I define liberalism as a role for government in the economy to help make life more fair, and a broad acceptance of people regardless of who they are.
This is why it says “All People Matter” at the top of the blog.
A blog grows one reader at a time. If you like what you read here, please consider forwarding the link.
Texas Liberal began regular posting on July 25, 2006.
Thanks for reading Texas Liberal.
