Yes, to those who believe that there should be limits to government power.
It's certainly not surprising or unexpected for those who've been paying attention.
At it's root, the cause is simple.
People want government to provide more and more stuff and do more and more things.
In order to do all that, government must have the wealth and powers to accomplish it.
Because human nature is what it is, giving any person or group that much power insures eventual corruption, and ultimately, results in an authoritarian/totalitarian regime if left unchecked.
It's like gravity, in that one cannot set in place any set of laws/rules/etc to change it. That's why the writers of the US Constitution tried to make as much of government as possible a strictly local matter and leave very little for the central government to do except things like treaties and wars. We left that behind in the early-1900s thanks to Woodrow Wilson, FDR, and the Progressive movement, and haven't looked back.
In order for government to grow, individual freedom, choice, and wealth must suffer, as it is only from limiting/taking the people's wealth, freedom, and power of choice that government is able to act.
Everybody is born free, government can only limit that freedom just as government creates no wealth and can only take it from those who create actual wealth.
More government = less freedom. It's a zero-sum equation. More of one necessitates less of the other.
How much less-free do you want to be today?
Bastardizing or just plain ignoring the Constitution to grow government since the 1950s at a nearly geometric rate to feed the entitlement bread-and-circuses to buy votes and paying for it by enslaving future generations with our bills and loss of freedoms and choices has been working out *great* so far.
$17 trillion in debt and an emerging authoritarian police/surveillance state with thermonuclear/biological weapons and one of the top3, if not the top, military in the world, great.
The world needs to pay attention, because once those in the US government have secured their power here and raped the domestic economy, that military will be sent out to secure more wealth from other countries to feed the beast.
You people in other countries had better pray to whatever/whoever you hold dear that those citizens in the US fighting to try to reduce the size and power of the US Federal government succeed or, and heed my words well, what will be coming your way if they fail will make the Nazi reign of terror and death look like a Cub Scout jamboree and George Orwell's "1984" look like an independent-thinker's and truth-lover's Utopia.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
