Government Spending

Somebody much wiser than me reminded me that the money that the government has is our money. If it’s our money, than we should have a say in how it gets spent. But so often the Government forgets the money belongs to us and they spend it like it belongs to them, and when they run out of money, they ask for more by raising our taxes.

One of the reasons I am a Republican is that I believe in limited Government. The Government needs to provide basic services such as education, public safety – police and fire, and general health and welfare for those who can’t help themselves. The Government also needs to make laws to protect us. But unfortunately there are many people who take advantage of the Government and we continue the cycle of dependency. We must find new ways to help people to help themselves if they’re able and to not rely on the Government.
