Government will grow unless checked by us

American business is built on competition. If you don't compete well you will not survive.

American government is built upon growth. Government growth is required because the lack of competition leads to exorbitant waste and cost. With growth, our government survives to continue the cycle of exorbitant waste and cost.

When our government officials tell us they have no intent to grow the surveillance of our text, voice and data communications, we need to be very concerned. The government has no choice but to expand surveillance growth. Without growth, it can't survive.

This is exactly why we have our Second Amendment to the Constitution. It states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Note in particular the word "free."
