All Government is Bad

All Government is Bad
David Schlecht

I’m so sick of hearing this chant from the Republicans. Our forefathers would be disgusted to hear people say that “we the people” is bad. I’m not bad. And if you’re reading this I know you’re not bad because you research the issues. Government is not bad.

But, what they’re really saying isn’t that we should have a weak government but that we should have no government to interfere with the greed of the corporations. Our government is the only way we can stop the multi-billion dollar corporations and CEOs from taking over our country. When they say, “do you want government coming between you and your doctor?” what they’re really saying is “Let the insurance billionaires come between you and your doctor, not ‘we the people’.”

Look around the world and you will find that the most successful and most socially advanced countries have BIG GOVERNMENTS.

Government isn’t bad, lack of “we the people” is a disaster for a democracy.

  1. This is so sick that it makes me sad. How have we Americans come to distrust and hate “we the people”? You are right, our forefathers would be horrified at what the party of hate has become.

  2. The factors that control the balance are obvious. The less power government has the more power the greedy have. Gee, I wonder if it’s the greedy who are arguing for smaller government, the greedy and their brainless tea party followers.

  3. Government is bad only if you’re a business who doesn’t want to be regulated. That’s what a small government is. A government that can’t function for the benefit of the people against the aristocracy and the polluting and poisoning businesses.

    Is that the kind of smaller government the tea baggers want?
