The government should pay for…?

We need to change the way we talk about government if we hope to solve our national problems.

We must stop saying, “The government should pay for…” and instead say, “You and I should pay for…”

Instead of saying, “The government should pay for XYZ,” try saying, “You and I should pay for XYZ” and see if this changes your opinion.

As a friend of mine noted, “The government does not ‘make’ anything, and it ‘creates’ no wealth. It simply takes from those who labor, and redistributes the wealth to others.”

So let’s be very clear about the fact that the government doesn’t give you anything unless it first takes it from hard-working Americans. The only way politicians get money is to take it from taxpayers. 

Now ask yourself these questions 

  • Do you feel our government is doing a good job at handling our money?
  • Are you willing to give them more and trust them to be responsible with it?
  • Do you think the federal government should be required to live within their means without borrowing money or placing unreasonable tax burdens on citizens?

I am grateful for the efforts of those in government who serve with integrity and try to keep costs down to protect citizens from unreasonable tax burdens.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY, we should realize that civil government comes from God and its sole purpose is to obey Him by administering His Law (Romans 13).
