I've heard my father speak for years about liberty and freedom. One of the reasons I love writing about history is because I can transport myself and others back into an earlier time when life was simpler and there was less government intervention in our lives.
We can learn a lot from history. Unfortunately, people who remember those times are dying daily. My father, for example, remembers when there was no income tax withheld from paychecks. Nothing withheld from paychecks. His father, a railroad engineer, was the first person in Chattanooga to have income tax withholdings. And then, they said it would only be for a short time. The federal government never does anything for a short time. The withholding stuck and has grown ever since.
People today not only can't remember these simpler times when government didn't meddle in their lives, but they don't know what they're missing. This is why I've put together this little video to paint a picture of what a free Constitutional Republic really looks like.
