"A big government can exist only in theory, Just like Karl Marx's true vision of communism can only exist in theory. A big government will always have access to too much power. and when a President can fire a CEO and make decisions of life and death (through healthcare), that is hardly "limited power. " A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have"-Thomas Jefferson" by John Kaduk Added note: It turns out Jefferson was misquoted as saying that, it was Gerald Ford who said that, Jefferson actually said "The natural progress for things is for liberty to yield and government to gain control". Which I believe will happen when liberties are abused.
Notice how he states "big government can exist only in theory" then uses Karl Marx's visions from the 18oo's to back up his statement. Where are the facts? Then he says our President fired a CEO. I think he is referring to GM CEO Rick Wagoner. Obama didn't fire him, he merely told GM if they wanted to get a loan from the government, they would have to replace the CEO. Wagoner in turn stepped down. Then he says our President is making decisions of life and death by trying to get healthcare for every American. That is laughable and ridiculous to say the least. If any President made decisions of life and death, it was Bush when he started a war with Iraq based on lies to help his oil buddies. Then he finished his comment with a misquote from Thomas Jefferson who was an intelligent Republican leader and was our third President 100 200 ago. It was actually Gerald Ford, but I would tell Mr. Ford that a government small enough to give the rich everything they want is small enough to take everything away from the middle class and poor. Correction: I was wrong, Jefferson was President 200 years ago.
