Something I like to do now and then is look up the meaning of words. I think that's healthy, because other people try to
game engineer my understanding of some words.
Consider the word: "govern." Here's its definition:
So I ask you...
- to rule over by right of authority
- to exercise a directing or restraining influence over; guide
- to hold in check; control
- to regulate the speed of
- to have predominating influence
Do you expect others to rule over you?
Do you give them the right of authority to do so?
Do you want them to have a restraining influence over you?
Should others have the right to hold you in check?
Regulate your movement?
This is why those who founded this country wanted government to be limited in its powers.
Personally, I don't want anyone governing me.
