The Problem of Government

Listening to Rush Limbaugh yesterday, my mind was opened to an obvious truth:

Our government acts too much as a "parent" to its citizens.

We are always wanting money, we whine and complain when we don't get what we want, and we have to follow the rules of our government.

Rules are good, but why should we rely on the government to write us a check whenever we are experiencing difficulties? Is it really healthy to be so dependent on something? Maybe it is time to start being more self-sufficient.

For example, look at the $2,000 debit cards that were given to the Katrina victims. It turns out that people were spending them on things like tattoos, alcohol, and sex toys.

I thought the money was meant for immediate emergency need! How silly of me!

At least one person bought themselves something useful, a .45 caliber pistol. Why can't I get $2,000 to spend on guns?

We are all paying for this through our taxes. And this fraud can be seen throughout all situations where the government redistributes income. This is why welfare reform is necessary.

I'm just saying, wouldn't it be better if we could abolish the idea that we need to be dependent on the government, and instead embrace the advantages of self-reliance? (such as NO FRAUD)

It is just an attitude that truly needs to change.
