In reply to Peter Goldmark’s Oct. 9 Opinion column, “Don’t dismantle government,” I say: “Please state who or what is dismantling government.”
Is it those pesky “politicians” who seek to unravel our government, and who are they? Or could it be that it is “cult-like” group in Congress or the “extremists” in the House (per your Aug. 4 editorial); no name calling here? Certainly, it could not be the Obama administration, with admitted Marxists and communists on its staff!
“But trying to take down the system itself.” Who or what? Names will be helpful. You might also look to “who” caused our housing meltdown, government debt, unfunded liabilities and our credit rating downgrade.
Yes, our individual liberties, limited government, and the rule of law were the admiration of the world. That’s “were” (as in past tense)! If you really want to know how to keep this government, you will press for all of these. The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government.
