Government “Protection”

Posted by

Government gun control has been the topic of debate in recent months. But government ‘protection’ has resulted in MILLIONS of deaths every year.

From the January 10th broadcast of the Mark Levin show:

Mark talks about DDT and what happened when the EPA got involved and banned DDT despite the positive effects of it. They came in and banned it and did more harm than good. (Since 1999, over 38,000,000 people have died from malaria.)  The same thing with the CAFE standards that the federal government is imposing – making people less safe in their cars. (How many of the annual 42,000 traffic fatalities are the result of CAFE standards?) These are just a few major examples of the politicians thinking they know what they’re doing when it comes to regulating and controlling the individual and the individual’s rights, and it having a very serious and disastrous effect. The push against the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with the mass murders that have taken place, but rather it is the statists, the government and the media wanting to push their own agenda.

Larry Arnn from Hillsdale College:

You know how much government protection we get these days.  It is expensive, and it seeks to make the world safer for all of us. Or so it claims.

In truth the government has many priorities beyond our safety and well-being.  One of those is environmental protection.  This article tells the story about high fuel economy and what it costs in driver safety.  Every year tens of thousands of people are killed in traffic accidents.  That number will rise if we make our cars ever lighter.  Unless, that is, the government becomes powerful enough to repeal the laws of physics.
