'Governmental Reliance Syndrome'

Bobby Eberle hit a home run today. His article clearly points to the problem its source and how we are being manipulated. Let me give you a short taste.

Americans Afflicted with 'Governmental Reliance Syndrome'
Posted By Bobby Eberle On April 8, 2008 at 6:25 am

Each time a major event happens in American, whether it happens to be a hurricane, rising gas prices, some housing foreclosures, you name it, the first reaction of the media is "Now that Event A has happened, what is the federal government going to do about it." They expect America's tax dollars to bail out people who spent too much on a house, to be used to artificially change the price of goods, and to "stimulate" an economy that naturally has ups and downs. The problem is that the more the media speaks, the more people listen, and it is becoming alarmingly clear that too many Americans expect government to "solve problems" rather than stay out of the way.

A new survey by Rasmussen Reports shows a shocking level of Americans (63%) feel that "the federal government is not doing enough to address the troubled U.S. economy."

Only 19% hold the opposite opinion. The economy goes up and down, yet nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the government should jump in and try to fix it? This is most disturbing. Why should tax dollars be spent to "fix" something that will fix itself? Why should America borrow money and go into further debt to "stimulate" an economy that is the strongest in the world?

Go Read the Rest.

We need to start taking responsibility for our actions. We/I don't have the funds to bail out every poor decision maker in America. If you make bad choices the consequences can be pretty horrible. This goes for both individual and business decisions. It is part of Freedom.

We don't need more welfare based programs that waste more money then they distribute. If we need to help people than help them succeed at meeting their needs. Teach them to fish as the verse goes.

You hit the nail on the head. Get off your lazy rear ends and work. No more dole/unemployment/free medical/dental/ and any other thing you can get. Other than get a job.

The Government has the authority and the obligation to make it a level playing field. The primary purpose of the Federal Government is to deal with other Governments representating the people of the US.

There attention is needed in balancing the trade with China; And, The southern border is a mess, driven by exploitation of a slave labor force.

Health care will fix it self if the government does its job ... If it tries to fix its own lie, nothing will be fixed.
