"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Fined in America For Growing Vegetables?

Still think government isn't too big? Well, ask this guy how he feeels. He's being fined $5000.00 because he's growing too many vegetables on his property. So why do we allow a government to regulate how much we can grow? That also means they can regulate how much we eat, how much we give away (charity), and perhaps even what we grow! That's not the America we should be living in - sounds more like Cuba to me...

Stand With God, Stand For Liberty!


  1. Self reliance and growing one's own food used to be considered patriotic, in fact a patriotic duty. During WWII gardens like this were called "Victory Gardens."

    This man loves to grow plants, which is wonderful in and of itself. But, as the economy declines, more and more people will be growing food for their tables.

  2. Yeah, and more and more government regulation will occur so they get their "due" in the form of tax revenue if we don't make our stand! This is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion!
