Knowing that we don’t know anything about what is truly being done by the people in our government and that the way they seem to throw funds around at things that most citizens don’t care about or benefit from makes some of us want to opt out. There are some things that seem beneficial such as maintaining a military for protection, or highways for transportation. Some things however seem a bit over costly. The space program, for instance, should be privatized.
Health care is another chance for people to complain about what the government does, or doesn’t do. If the government took over health care they would screw it up much as they do with most things. If people need health care and cannot afford it the government could loan them money for care that would have to be repaid. This idea of the government providing “free” health care is first not free and secondly would not be as good as care provided by professionals making a living from their work.
Taxes are something that the government needs to do to continue to generate working funds. Tax money should be spent more efficiently. Why do we pay politicians? Is it because WE want them to be around forever, or because they want to continue to milk the system? The federal government is too far removed from most of the country to be able to know what anyone really needs or wants. Let’s pass most of the governing to more local levels, and reduce the opportunity for lifelong representatives in the federal government to grow old in an office that is filled with corruption.
If you agree we would like to hear from you and if you don’t agree we suggest you re-evaluate your position. The status quo has got to go if we are to move ahead toward a more efficient government. Let’s opt out of the BS and send a message to the PIC that we don’t want them reaching our pockets anymore.
Thanks for listening!
