Freedom Has a Price

Oh how I hate incessant
Whining and complaining
About that which I can’t change
My only choice is to pick my poison

Oh how I hate
The nanny government
Sticking its nose
In the private and personal lives of citizens

Hands reaching through employers
Offering incentives
Dangling the carrot of money
Hoping we will respond like Pavlov’s dogs

Our government has lost its focus
No longer able to defend and protect
Its citizens against evil
Against people and governments bent on destruction

Freedom always has a price to pay
For me, it’s a little over $1.50 a day
To say “No”, my life is my own
It is to God to Whom I will give an account
