The mess we're all in

I believe that government is far off its rails in regards to reach and authority. From my understanding of the founders government is to be the guarantor of our freedom and our rights. Sometime in the last 230-odd years the word guarantor lost a couple of letters and the perception of government by both the people and those in government is that government is the grantor of our freedom and our rights. However that happened…whether the ink just wore off the parchment in that spot from exposure or whether someone skilled in calligraphy edited the page, we have made a suicidal turn in our response to it as a people. I cannot say that we’ll ever get back. It’s like we’re all in the same bad dream. We have some idea where we want to return to but every move we make lands us somewhere else.
