Government Should Leave Us Alone

Do you find like I do no matter what level of government that no matter what the issue, they seem to be trying to want to run every part of our lives?  Monte Solberg makes a very good case why government should just leave us alone.
In government, too often inefficient and ineffective programs just get bigger and more intrusive. Why wouldn’t they? Careers and salaries don’t hinge on programs being successful or efficient. Sometimes there are almost no systems in place to indicate whether a program is working.Let’s face it, the government just isn’t very good at doing many, if not most, things. As P.J. O’Rourke once famously said, giving the government more money is like giving 16-year-old boys whiskey and car keys.
Exactly!  Government can't do anything very effectively at all.  Too much bureaucracy, red tape etc.  Government no matter what level couldn't organize a two car funeral efficiently if you let them.

Programs always run over budget, you get fifty different bureaucrats working on the same file at the same time that each one doesn't know what the other is doing. So much redundancy.  They want information from us they actually don't need and when you contact them, they keep giving you the run around.

They try and tell you how to conduct your life. Parents don't need to told how to raise their children. We don't need to be told what we should eat, or to get in the shade, put on our sun screen and drink plenty of fluid when it's hot out.   Stuff like that is just common sense.  We don't need government to tell us what to do.  Government doesn't trust you to do what is best for you and your family or your business. They treat you and I like we're stupid!  We are not children!

Who pays for all that nonsense?  You got it!  We do, the taxpayer!  It's time we came against our governments who impose all this control on us.  We have to restore common sense at all levels of government again.  It's up to us.  We have allowed them to get away with this kind of business for far too long.

Government, at all levels, LEAVE US ALONE!  Take off the shackles and encourage personal responsibility.  Allow private business to do what business knows best,  to conduct business. Free private individuals to create and innovate and they in turn are betters abled to  freely contribute to society, to help those that  need the help.   A freer people, will translate into a free, happy and prosperous nation.   


  1. Unforturnately the majority pay for the stupidity of a few...common sense was used when it was taught from parent to child. Nowadays we have a generation that can't think for themselves because they have been taught that the government will do all the thinking for you. Take away the government control and there would be more than a few that would be totally useless when it came to thinking for themselves.

  2. The people today do not even know that they have lost the freedom of choice. I am 72 years old and get very angry almost daily at the way the system trys to babysit me in to many ways. I hope some crabby old fart like me dosn`t fall off his toilet some day whack his head and die. Cause if it happens the first thing you know we will all have to wear helmets and seat belts every time we go for a crap.

  3. The people today do not even know that they have lost the freedom of choice.

    I agree with you. Sadly too many people have been weaned on the nanny state for the last 40 years and don't know any different. Time to wake them out of their slumber.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
