I have never been in favor of large government, nor in government that wants to caretake its citizens. I want government to handle those things the constitution says the government should handle and stay the heck out of the rest of our lives.
I shudder when I hear Obama talk about increasing the size of government, increasing taxes on businesses and rich people. Who do you think keeps our economy moving? Listening to Obama talk about increasing government to help the economy is so backward it makes my head hurt. Obama has never run a business and has no point of reference for the trials and tribulations facing business owners.
Increasing government is not the answer. Increasing people’s particpation in improving their community is where Obama’s talents lie, and that’s what he should be doing. Empower the people, don’t caretake them.
