My father taught me if a bully ever threatened me I should punch them. Great advice in theory, but when the hulking behemoth of a scowling bully is bearing down on you it's hard to curl your fist, rear back and swing. You just have to ask yourself: How much is this lunch money really worth?
It's the same with the government. When government attacks your freedom and your property, you need to punch back. But fighting the big, hulking behemoth of the federal government is even scarier than the playground bully. The stakes are usually a little higher than a few dollars.
Every once in awhile, however, brave people stand up to the playground bully and others, thankfully, stand up and against the government bully too.
