Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s brother made a sobering observation on the power of a vindictive government.

Chuck Heath Jr. posted on his Facebook page Saturday:

Coincidence? You decide.

My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS. In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words “horribly harassed” six times by the agency. They’ve tried to dig up something on him but he’s always operated above board.

Government and politics are ugly. Kudos to the few that are trying to clean it up.

Two quotes come to mind.

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny, Thomas Jefferson wrote. “When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Speaking before a group of Latino voters in the days leading up to the 2010 midterms, President Obama made a comment designed to fire up his supporters.

“We’re going to punish our enemies,” he said in a Univision interview, “and we’re gonna reward our friends.”
