Only the Government...
"Only the government has the resources capable to educate our nation. Only the government has the ability to provide health care to the nation. Only the government has the ability to feed to poor."
This is a common treatise cited for why our government should act as a savior for the lost. But, this is incorrect. Do you know who else has the resources? The people of this country. The one's who are funding this government. And they can do it better. And definitely more efficiently.
Yesterday, this thought experiment just hit 10,000 page views. I think it makes sense that it should fall on a day where a post makes me look like a maniac. But, thank you very much for your contributions over the last year+, and let's continue to learn so that we can act.
