You Be the Judge: When Should Government Be Allowed to Take Your Children?

The government taking children away for not following the standards they have set is just another step in a total takeover of our lives. Sure there are way too many kids obese, but this is not the problem for the government to address by punishment, but rather by education. If this is allowed, just where do we set the boundaries for other matters? Should a family be allowed to travel beyond a certain mile limit because of the cost of gasoline or alleged shortage? How about being told how old you have to be or can be to have children? Where does it end? Are Americans ready to surrender almost every freedom we, once, took, for granted for things? This is the crossroads where our once great bastion of freedom stands. As Obama and his cronies continue to head us toward Socialism, we all might want to remember this moment in history as we watch our freedoms away.

Look at the new national ID system that has been and is being set up here, the way it is going to go if you as much as cross a border without the right ID they can and will put you in jail for it, it is no different over in England with their health care system, except that their system says what kids should weigh at certain ages, if they are over that weight then the government can take the kids away from the parents. The same thing is going to happen here if we are not careful.
