"Do not tread on me"

To the editor and to my runaway government:

Do not tell me what kind of car I will have to drive in the year 2016. I will choose what car to drive in accordance with what I can afford.

Do not tell me that I will be an owner of General Motors or any other sinking car company. I'm sure you will take my taxes and I'm sure you will not be forwarding me dividend checks.

Do not dictate to me the size of my carbon footprint. You see, I want a large one such as that of Al Gore's. I will then know that I am living large.

Do not tell me that my taxes will be going to take care of a nerve-do-well who chooses not to put in a day's work for a day's pay. I will choose a deserving charity I wish to donate to.

These are just a few things which are bugging me today as I see my country tilt toward socialism.

I choose not to be a socialist and "Do not tread on me."
