From our own country's history:
" IF EVER A TIME SHOULD COME, WHEN VAIN, AND INSPIRING MEN SHOULD POSSESS THE HIGHEST SEATS IN GOVERNMENT, OUR COUNTRY SHALL STAND IN NEED OF ITS MOST EXPERIENCED PATRIOTS TO PREVENT ITS RUIN " Samual Adams - 1776
I believe that this is exactly what Chuck is talking about. And, it pretty much fits what is going on in Washington today. Our government has way overgrown its intended size, and if we, as patriots, do not "whittle" it down to its original size, it will overtake us completely.
