Government Run Amok

Given the focus on the current push by the socialists to take over our federal government (a battle which the left appears to be winning handily) it is sometimes easy to overlook the threats to our hard-won freedoms that state and local governments can often pose.

If you have been alive on this rock for more than say, 10 years, you have probably encountered situations where government is clearly overstepping its boundaries. I know I certainly have, and each of my experiences only stiffened my resolve to continue my personal war against government tyranny in any form, and not to go off and cower in a corner somewhere, as far too many Americans seem willing to do these days.

However, I have yet to encounter anything close to the government lunacy that one man has found himself face to face with in Clearwater, Florida.

No American citizen should have to endure this sort of bureaucratic tyranny by any government, not even for a minute.

I don't know what it is about local governments located within the Sunshine State, as they seem to all have a little wider totalitarian streak than many other areas of our nation.
