Freedom From Choice

Not understanding the basics of economics and government may send us back to a very dark place.

“Now, whether government borrows or increases taxes, it will be taking the same amount of money from the private economy, and either way, that’s too much. We must bring down government spending. We need a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget. It’s something that 49 states already require — no reason the federal government should be any different.

We need the line-item veto, which 43 governors have — no reason that the president shouldn’t. And we have to cut waste.”

Ronald Reagan March 8, 1985 CPAC speech

The more influence we give to government, the fewer decisions we will get to make. The fewer decisions, the less power we have. Do you really want that?
