A Penny for Your Thoughts?
Today is “Free Thought Day.”
And my free thought is, “Well, that’s about the only thing that’s still free. Wait a while and someone will want to tax that, too!”
Yes, this is one of those rare serious posts on this blog.
Sometimes it seems that we’re in a sort of endless cycle in our wonderful country. It IS a wonderful country; the government, though, isn’t so wonderful.
Our form of government is fine. There’s just too much of it.
As government has tried to be the answer for every question, it has burgeoned.
As “we the people” have asked the government to provide for us, government has increased.
As politicians have built their own little empires, government has multiplied.
As politicians have created jobs for friends, government has grown.
Each time government grows – with new employees, new programs, new responsibilities, new regulations, new buildings – the amount of money needed for funding has increased as well.
