Excellent speech with one

Excellent speech with one exception; The better question would be;
Why have we allowed our government employees to violate our civil liberties and take them away? After all, they are actual human beings doing this to us.

You want to win your Freedom and Liberty? Start calling the people you elect to work for you "GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES" ALL THE TIME.

Start putting a human face on all of them. It's really that simple folks.

I DO NOT GIVE MY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES THE RIGHT TO ABUSE ME. GOT IT?
