I detest big gov't. I don;t have a link. I don't have a news article. It is my own personal feelings. The way I see it - having gov't serve the people too much makes people lazy. It's like the parents that spoil a child. The kid never learns to take care of themselves. The old phrase about teaching people to fish and giving them a fish applies too. Someone once said - a gov't big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have. A wise chinesse man once said something about the gov't being more dangerous than the tiger. Based on the history of gov'ts(all of them for recorded history) well, I would have to agree with the above two ideas and I'd rather not repeat history here in America. While I'm socially more liberal, fiscally I'm very conservative. This seems to be a problem for some and I get frustrated that I get pinned with labels I know do not fit me. I like talking politics but I'll probably be a little less vocal here because there isn;t much debate or learning going on here. Just rants and name calling and quotes out of context that just serves to stoke the fires of hate. Either way I'll be voting out Obama and at this point I have yet to find a candidate I really like. Best of luck to you all.
