To The Daily Sun,
Big government gobbles increasing amounts of people's money, freedoms, and opportunities, which politicians use to enhance their power and wealth and to provide privileges to themselves (e.g., Obamacare exemption) and favored special interests (e.g., subsidies, regulations, tax loopholes).
Our nation's founders knew that the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. The Constitution they created, and approved by the people's state representatives, authorized a small federal government with strictly limited powers for the purpose of protecting people's rights, property, and opportunities.
The benefit of this small, limited government was demonstrated during the first half of our nation's existence. We had a real citizen government. Congressmen typically served less than two terms. During that short period of tremendous growth and change, the American people created the largest, freest, and wealthiest middle class in the world.
In the early 20th Century, politicians decided to ignore the Constitution so they could use government to "do good" (especially for themselves). The big government they created (seven to eight times large compared to GDP) has enabled senators and congressmen to become wealthy during long careers in Washington dispensing benefits to appreciative special interests, at the expense of the American peoples' wealth, freedom, and opportunities. The Obama administration clearly reveals the results of big government. Most Americans suffer while the politicians and special interests flourish.
Constitutional conservatives fight to return to the small limited government envisioned by our founders that enable the American people to be free and prosper.
Big government beneficiaries will do anything to protect their wealth and power. By using negative sounding labels (e.g., extreme conservative, hard-liner, inflexible, arch-conservative, extreme right-winger, etc.) to slander constitutional conservatives, they hope to convince Americans to approve of their taking your money, freedoms, and opportunities.
How much/many of your wealth, freedoms, and opportunities, and those of your children and grandchildren, are you willing to give up so the politicians can grow powerful and wealthy? If you want government "of, by and for the people" rather than government "of, by and for the politicians and the special interests," then we need to elect constitutional conservatives.
Ted Cruz is the most consistent constitutional conservative presidential candidate. He has been true to his campaign promises, fought the Washington political establishment, and has been fighting to restore constitutional government.
Cruz is vilified by the Washington political establishments and the special interests because he poses the biggest threat to big government and the wealth and power it bestows on the politicians and special interests.
New Hampshire citizens who want government to work for them rather than the politicians and special interests need to unite behind and vote for Ted Cruz.
