yes, well, what can I say, the trip to work is like running an obstacle course with a myriad of potholes littering the street some of which could take
out my car!!! I don't see where the gov't would want to take credit for them!!!
you really don't think you need the gov't???
how many people in this nation are working 40 hours a week then coming home and sitting at a table with a meal on it that is at least some, if not
all, purchased from food stamps?? isn't the companies they are working for kind of depending on the gov't to feed these people???
how many kids, and recent graduates are depending on student loans and grants to pay at least some, if not all of the tuition??
how many companies are depending on tax incentives, sba loans, ect. to keep their businesses running or starting them up??
how many landlords are counting on the gov't to pay at least some, if not all, of their tennants high rent??
how many medical clinics are counting on the gov't to pay their patients bills??
how many drug companies are counting on the gov't to buy the drugs for people??
how many stores and businesses are counting on the gov't to give some of the people money to spend at their stores?
I could go on, I really could!!
but, well, like it or not, weather you agree with it or not, and personally I don't!! WE NEED THE GOV'T!!!
to me, it is contrary to the values of our country, and it is leading us all, even those rich successful people, into a state of servitude!! and
well, to be frank, one of the first steps to fixing a problem is to understand what that problem is! and our problem is that the gov't is siphoning
way too much money out of the free economy and picking just who, what industries should be beneficiaries of those funds, and which ones should find
themselves in a famine.
because, dependency will always lead to SERVITUDE!!
if you are one of those successful business men that are offended by what he said, well....
if you are a landlord, lower your rent to a reasonable level...
if you are an employee with a crew of food stamp recipients, pay them enough to buy their own food....
if you are a doctor, go independent and make your fees affordable for the average patient to pay without insurance.
if you know someone who is on the gov't dole, make an agreement with them , you will help them out, if they will drop out of the gov't
eliminate the need for the gov't!
then come back and tell us we don't need it!
