We are entering another election year. Campaigning never seems to end in this day and age, especially with a president who seems to always be in campaign mode. We will be faced with on-going advertisements and promises from candidates. As Nancy Pelosi reminded us all last week, many things are said on the campaign trail with no true intention of upholding those statements or promises once your vote is cast.

This year we are seeing a growing movement from a grassroots nation of frustrated citizens. At the root of the movement is people’s frustration combined in abundant laws of restriction. There is a real awareness government is growing oppressively out-of-control at all levels. This is understandable if we understand the gears driving our societal self.

Inherent within each of us are a natural, commercial, and governing gear. Studying history we find political philosophers across the ages that recognized these inherent gears. As Charles de Montesquieu observed education is a single key factor in determining the type of government a people would tolerate living under. The least educated populations were geared toward tyrannical despotism, known more commonly today as dictatorship, caring for all needs through singular and powerful oversight. Somewhat educated societies were more comfortable giving honor and loyalty to a monarch or oligarch, where kingly or noble heredity knew better what was good for their subjects while a sense of freedom could be felt.
