Government at all levels has grown out of control, not only causing taxes to increase, but they are also taking our Rights away. The federal government has become notorious for the ‘strings’ it attached to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) funds. Many local and state government agencies have recklessly accepted these funds without consideration of the strings, many of which result in a direct assault on our Rights. We need to wean ourselves off federal funding and the strings.
