In the last analysis, employment and prosperity are the function and responsibility of private enterprise. It is government’s responsibility to end the harassment, roadblocks, regressive taxation and to offer, wherever practical, tax incentives that will help to provide jobs and a friendly business climate.

Trust in Values October 20, 2009

My view of government places trust not in one person or one party, but in those values that transcend persons and parties. The trust is where it belongs—in the people. The responsibility to live up to that trust is where it belongs, in their elected leaders. That kind of relationship, between the people and their elected leaders, is a special kind of compact.

“We the people” tell the government what to do, it doesn’t tell us. “We the people” are the driver, the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast.

So, as we begin, let us take inventory. We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth.

We have long since committed ourselves, as a people, to help those among us who cannot take care of themselves. But the federal government has proven to be the costliest and most inefficient provider of such help we could possibly have.

Government – any government – has a built-in tendency to grow.

Sadly, eight Republicans voted for the American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009 (HR 2454) causing it to pass yesterday.  They are:

  • Bono Mack (CA) 202-225-5330
  • Castle (DE) 202-225-4165
  • Kirk (IL) 202-225-4835
  • Lance (NJ) 202-225-5361
  • Lobiondo (NJ) 202-225-6572
  • McHugh (NY) 202-225-4611
  • Reichart (WA) 202-225-7761
  • Chris Smith (NJ) 202-225-3765

We cannot let them be re-elected.  They failed to check the socialist advances of President Obama, and the result will be disastrous for the economy and for our children’s future.

There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.
