When is "Enough" Enough?

The Bush Administration was by no means perfect. I can say that without a hedge. But they didn't send us $750 billion into ear-marked debt, which I personally see as a good thing. The Bush Administration didn't try to control the minute details of people's business and personal lives. Again, I see this as a good thing.

I've read a few articles this week that are kind of disturbing, the most recent of which came from my room mate: Obama Wants to Control the Banks. THAT scares me. And THIS article has a point. While dish washing detergent is probably a bit extreme, I agree that the "straw that broke the camel's back" is just that: a straw. Something unimportant and minute.

And, if it comes to something like this, where does that put me, as a christian, in terms of supporting my government, which God says is ordained by him, and supporting my fellow Americans?
