The Responsibilities and Role of Local/County Governments – why regionalism and Federal overreach must be stopped.
Our guest Jim Carlson will discuss the nature and extent of Federal overreach and the impacts of regionalism in local matters that impact average citizens in ways that would be inconceivable only a generation ago. We are losing our constitutional republic through a form of gradualism and mission creep that threatens to destroy the most fundamental rights of most Americans and our local leaders don’t seem to see it happening.
The Founding Fathers intentionally structured our system of government to be a bottom-up, local control system that was meant to serve the rights of individual citizens and make government the servant and not the master. Sadly, that system is being lost through ignorance and a misunderstanding of the powers and purpose of Local, County, State, and Federal Governments. Money has become the tool of the controllers to effect this ceding of local control to unelected bureaucrats and regional controllers that have no true authority under our Constitution. We are being eaten alive by the cancer within our elected and appointed government…………….that cancer is progressivism, also known as communism, and threatens our survival as a free republic. Join this discussion of why local/county government must return to their traditional role and responsibility as protectors of liberty and the interests of individual citizens.
