The Size of Government

The non-military part of the government is less than a quarter of what the government spends.  Most of the money goes to the military or seniors (which we would spend privately anyway if the government wasn’t).  It is not the fault of the government that the industrial revolution happened resulting in a much more urban/suburban culture and industrialization.  This required the government to greater plan cities, oversee worker safety, empower laborers with management, manage increased globalization, and rule on what we put into the sky, earth, and waterways.

We all want less stressors, but it is human innovation that has dictated the size of the government.  The more problem solving the government does the better it is, no shortcuts. 

A Proactive government is empowering. It means if you do your homework and propose a better way, it will be implemented.  Unfortunately, the burden of proof is always on the non-cynical caring person such as the safety net, taxes, helping other countries, and making peace.

Government Cynicism

If someone asks you what do you “really think” of this stressor?  You are supposed to be cynical but if you want to be anything in life, you will be the one putting stress on others.

If you buy into your family, your holidays will be better.  If you buy into a team, your team will exceed expectations.  If you buy into your government, you will have peace and be able to work positively on things that matter.

Many arguments against the government that take on a cynical tone involve cherry picking, twisting facts, taking things out of context, and making mountains out of molehills. Human beings within the government are as tempted and make mistakes as any of us, but the role of government as the conscience and guider of civilization is extremely important.

The stressor isn’t big government its innovation.  A proactive government is empowering.
