Why I’m Not A Progressive
Government is not the solution to the problem. Government is the problem.
The government has no business in our bedrooms or our doctors offices and banning the sale of sex toys in this state is just plain silly, but there is a need for government. Competent government.
My dictionary defines government as “the act or manner of controlling or regulating a nation, organization, or people.” The people in Iraq have essentially no government and how many of us envy them? What happened (and is still happening) to New Orleans after Katrina hit was a colossal failure of government. There would be no public roads, public schools, food or water safety standards or law enforcement without government.
In America today, government is not the problem, incompetent government is the problem. Electing new leaders is the solution.
No doubt incompetent government is a problem. But electing new leaders won’t solve anything. New leaders will just specialize in different areas of incompetence. Unless, of course, the new leaders want to strictly limit what the government can do. Less discretion for the leaders means less harm from the incompetence.
