Dis-Integration of the United States

John Locke wrote “whenever the Legislators endeavour to take away, and destroy the Property of the People . . . they put themselves into a state of War with the People, who are thereupon absolved from any further Obedience.”

Is this not exactly what the U.S. government is doing today?  Tax law is not about equitably raising funds for the needs of the government, but a method of punishing the politically unpopular.  Patent Reform (America Invents Act) is not about protecting property rights, but weakening them for the politically connected large corporations.  TARP was not about saving the economy, it was about taking money from the People to support politically connected Wall Street banks.  Obama Care is not about helping the needy, it is about destroying the independence of the wealth producers in this country.  Has the Government and the politically favored groups put themselves at war with the People?  Is the U.S. on the verge of Dis-Integration?
