This is scary stuff. I watched the Presidential Address last night with my usual amount of skepticism anytime he speaks– but this was different. With my skepticism was also horror— that our government has reached so far. It is unrestrained, on the loose… wreaking havoc in America like a beast feeding on the people. And, even worse, telling us it’s good for us. That’s the sickest part of it it all!

It’s hard not to lose hope.

Read Ron Paul’s thoughts over at I can’t help but think about how different R.P.’s response to this crisis would be than the current administration’s.
