Too much Government is NOT the problem
"We can't win the future with a government of the past."
PRESIDENT OBAMA, in his State of the Union address.
Now the G.O.P. (Republicans) will tell you that Government action is not to be trusted. Government's efforts to correct a wrong will always result in over regulation and wasted resources. And to some extent that is correct. Not be-cause it is a government effort though. Government's flaws are the result of Government's limited resources, humanity. Anything done via humanity will be flawed as an unavoidable result of human fallibility.
A government of the people, by the people and for the people is - to date - the BEST way to get the onerous work of regulation done. Laissez-faire de-regulation is a seductive theory but if our current economic issues, the result of banking DE-regulation, have taught us anything, "We the People" need government's democratically derived authority to REGULATE and thus keep the GREED of "We the People" in check.
To say Government is bad is to say "We the People" are bad. We always need to remember Lincoln's 11th and 12th commandments:
- 11th "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
- 12th "Government of the people, by the people and for the people" is still the best of the BEST, even if it is not perfect.
GOP (Republicans) want to balance the budget ELIMINATE the Bush era tax cuts!!!!!!!!!
I would contend that we do not have any individual rights in this country, "Everybody, BUT the innocent victim, has "ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY"" for the deprivation of rights; but that is another story.
