Us “flyover” folks just don’t get how hard running a government is. Really? Tell you what, try running a business with the government on your back and then talk to me. You politicians have it easy.
“For many years now, you and I have been shushed like children and told there are no simple answers to the complex problems which are beyond our comprehension.
Well, the truth is, there are simple answers, they just are not easy ones. The time has come for us to decide whether collectively we can afford everything and anything we think of simply because we think of it. The time has come to run a check to see if all the services government provides were in answer to demands or were just goodies dreamed up for our supposed betterment. The time has come to match outgo to income, instead of always doing it the other way around.”
