Run it like a Business
So some flounder on the tube thinks we should run our government like a business? And why is that? Take second and consider what is the prime goal of any business...............Go ahead, take your time........I'll wait......
Yeah that's right. Profit. Everything a business does is generally aimed at bringing in more of your dollars into their pockets. Based on the outrageous claims coming from the folks who drool to the Right, they should be happy then. The government is doing just fine picking our pockets just as any business would love to do. What's the beef?
I hear way too much whining leading in with tired old notions like "less government, "lower taxes", blah blah blah.
There will never be less government. That ship sailed long ago. With the population of this country well over 300 million and climbing steadily, any thought to trimming government is folly. And claiming to be for less government when the Republican's actions over the last 40 years have proven this is not the case, they just look like lying hypocritical idiots everytime they whip out their go to slogan of less government.
Might it not be better to shift our goals to ones that might have a snow ball's chance of happening? Like I don't know......Maybe instead of less government, how about we aim for better government. Wasting our time on futile effort only detracts us from making government work better.
Tearing it down is not the answer just as building it up for the sake of building it up is not either. Demand of our leadership better stewardship of the responsibilites we handed them when we elected them. Don't fall prey to empty promises and slogans.
