Pick Up Another Case of Government While You're Out!
How much government would you purchase if it was at your discretion? It's like, "Hey honey, while you're at the mall, would you pick up another case of government? 'Cause I just can't get enough! I'm up to like three packs a day." Pick any government project or program. Then ask yourself, "If I had to pay for this with my own money", (because you do), "would I buy this?" If the answer is no, then you need to tell your representatives to vote no. If they're representing you, that would be your vote, right? It doesn't matter if it's a new sidewalk (nice to have), or that ginormous park that's in competition for funds with a much needed county jail. You might have the money to spare, but not all taxpayers do. And every level of government is in such a financial crisis that they really should be asking the tough questions even about legitimate government functions. But they're not, are they?
