Government created the environment we live in today with help from progressives. We live in a day and age of crony capitalism, influence peddling, arbitrary decisions being made by burearucrats that affect millions of people, powerfully corrupt people escaping justice, liberties being taking away on a daily basis, wealthy lobbyists buying votes etc. etc. Why is this happening?

All this was made possible by libs and progressives giving government the control and power to make economic choices for the individual. The individual has lost untold economic freedom of choices that could have enriched their life. Instead, we have more and more people becoming dependent on government, who are vulnerable to decisions made by government and therefore easily scared by politicians trying to get their vote. Thus giving untold power to the political elite to buy your vote.

Politicians, who are more interested in being re-elected and keeping their power then solving issues, and are paralyzed on issues like Medicare and SS, which represents a huge voting block. So, now we are left with debt that will most likely have traumatic impact on millions of lives. Unsustainable entitlement programs with no solution in sight. Anyone with common sense could understand why.

As I have said before, in order for the libs and progressives to maintain their stand on the role of government that has produced the above, they have to completely ignore the Human Condition. Because, once you fully consider it, you realize the fallacy of your beliefs about the role of government.
