I don’t know much about politics & maybe that’s why I am a strong believer that we need to simplify our politics!
I was recently having a discussion with someone and I said “the government needs to cut spending” and the person I was speaking with said “Oh, it sounds like we’ve got a Republican on our hands”. Again, I don’t know a lot about politics so I didn’t realize that suggesting some spending cuts made me a Republican. I thought that not spending more than you have was more of a common sense statement than a political statement. I certainly don’t want to offend anyone… if, in your opinion, it’s ok to be 16 trillion in debt, that’s your business and everyone is entitled to their opinions, but the more I study the politics of the men who built this country, the more I realize just how simple & powerful their beliefs were.
“The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.” ~Thomas Jefferson
That just seems so simple! Don’t take what I’ve earned from me… and don’t give to me what I have not earned.
The problem with the excessive spending is this… it very simply is not the governments job to take care of us & the more we ask them to, the more they control us rather than ‘We The People’ control them.
Have a great day everybody!
