We, the people, have been complacent and apathetic too long. Blind
far, far too long. The crisis we find ourselves in today is our
own fault. The peoples’ fault. We forgot to be vigilant. We
prospered, we got comfortable, and we decided to leave governing
to the well-intentioned politicians and ‘experts’ who
knew best how to run the country and maintain our prosperity. At

Webster warned long ago, “Good intentions will always be pleaded
for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say
that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers
of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern
well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters,
but they mean to be masters.” And master they did, but they
were not “masters” of anything except a slow, insidious
destruction. Time to admit and correct the mistakes.
