Just curious about what most here on USMB prefer when it comes to Government in their lives. Thanks.
Much less.. I believe our country is drowning in government intrusion which is destroying the very foundation of our Republic. I also think you're going to get a left and right divide.. left prefers more government while those who lean right or independent prefer less.
Less government is more liberty in my opinion.
The only thing the govt does for me that i can't do for myself is maintain the roads I drive on....and my fuel taxes pay for that . And they maintain a military to defend us.
Maybe they do other things for me too but I can't think of them, maybe a pro-large govt person can challenge my statement and make me think more.
more more more GIVE ME MORE!
Well said. Thanks.
Would be nice to have an efficient one, I submit that in so doing, it can help but do both things be less intrusive and also be helpful not only to the citizens that it exists for, but also foster environments for business to thrive, as well as defend this nation. Call me nationalistic if you will, but I tend to believe that an efficient Govt. works well for everyone and by everyone, I mean Americans.
I think if our govt did get efficient we would, as a result, have less govt than we do now. Do you agree?
Pilgrim, I was basically saying the same thing, except your's was much less wordy. LOL so yes I agree. You know me when it come's to DOD purchasing, and how to make it more efficient , I must have 500 posts on the subject, lol and can think if no better example of that.
I would like to know what it is that you cannot do......or are forced to do......by "big government" that you were allowed to do or were free not to do 10, 20, 30 years ago?
All of this whining about government intrusion seems to have little basis in reality.
The poll is stupid, of course. Americans, in general, are not in favor of being told what to do or what not to do. That goes for "liberals" at least as much as it does for "conservatives".
To the dude who said he only needs roads and the military....................you are funny.
Our Freedom & Liberty has been steadily eroding for the last 40yrs. Government is getting bigger and more dominant. That's just reality. Look around,i mean really look around. You have far less freedom and rights than you might think.
