    Did anyone really believe that the state would stop at controlling only school transportation? Does anyone really believe that the federal government will stop at only controlling our health care? When will freedom-loving, independent-thinking Vermonters take back their power to say “no”? One of the greatest gifts our forefathers gave us was the right to free speech and self-governance. If we continue to allow the erosion of our God-given rights, then we are doomed to failure. Ultimately, we, the people, control our destiny, and state and federal elected officials are only there because we allow them to be. If you’re OK with being led in the direction we are going, then continue to sit back and enjoy. If you disagree, then get off your butt and say or do something to change it because this train is headed for a cliff and we are all in peril.
