You should understand that I believe there are some things that government does very well. Insuring a minimum retirement income is one. Running a single-payer healthcare system is another

Look around you. Everything the government touches turns to carp. Our current economic problems stem from government promises that can not be kept and from the government attempting to do for people what they should be doing for themselves.

Who cares more about you than you? Who knows what you need more than you? Government only has what it taken from others. Why should your neighbor be doing for you what you should be doing for yourself? What responsibilty does the individual have for his/her own well-being?

Leaving aside the philosophical side for a second, I find it hard to beleive that you can possibly believe that government is better able to do for others than they can do for themselves.

SS- bankrupt, Medicare - bankrupt, We're about to bail out the FHA, if you've been following the news. EVERYTHING they touch turns to garbage. It's on the news every day. It is not the free market that is failing us, it is government. How much more clear does it have to be?
