Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" & Washington's Farewell Warning; --"The Ring is trying to get back to its master!" - American Minute with Bill Federer
This was the warning of George Washington, who stated in his Farewell Address, September 19, 1796:
"But let there be no change by usurpation;
for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."
Government agencies that were started for good purposes over time accumulated power to become deep-state entities, often with oppressive political agendas.
