It is what it is...

Or is it? I really don't know how to reverse the growth of government. Obviously it is unsustainable and we are witnessing this obviousness everyday. I wrote a friend that I envision an axe hacking away at the tree of government.

But I believe this is an incorrect metaphor. Government, which may have begun as a young sapling has morphed into an out of control, untamed vine suffocating the very trunk that sustains it, i.e., the people. Well I should say 50% of the people. The other 50% are doing the suffocating, probably unintentionally or because they have been taught otherwise.

So as I lament at my dining room table I feel powerless and provoked to look at a map to see where to go next.

Is there a place outside the reach of this vine?
