The World

The problems, my friends, are not being caused by too much government, but by governments doing too little in an inefficient way (see: England, Japan). They are caught, especially here in the United States, between forces that understand the role that government needs to play when things get bad, and groups that want to starve government of its ability to perform effectively. We have agencies that could alleviate some of the suffering in this country, but they have been systematically denied funds and leadership by an ideology that says government is the problem. We are now seeing this repeated throughout the world.

It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. And it is ruining lives.
