Rules, laws better than the alternative


August 18, 2011

For those who feel their liberty and freedom are impinged upon by the local, state, and federal governments, because they don’t like signs, rules, guidelines and laws, what would we have without them? There are such things because people, groups, and corporations have stepped on the safety and freedom of others. Government is there to provide order and protection of all. We all have biases and prejudices. You should temper them with this fact: "Your freedom ends where my nose begins."
