Rick Barber's Provocative YouTube Campaign Ad

I caught some of a viral YouTube campaign ad by Rick Barber of Alabama on Bill O'Reilly's Fox News program the other night. It was fairly easy to find it and view the entire clip.

Here it is.

Pretty raw stuff. But effective for putting today's governmental power in perspective, isn't it?

We fought a war to become independent of a government that was less controlling and more responsive than the one we now actually elect.

Something's very wrong with this picture. I wish I could believe electing a Republican majority in the House next November will fix it, but I don't think that is enough. It's going to take non-partisan, citizen legislators and some serious Constitutional re-writing- not just a few scattered amendments- to put the federal genie back in the bottle.
