Dangers Of Big Government

Big government takes away your freedom.  People who love big government usually hate big business. 

Big business has never slaughtered its people like big government has done {Hitler and Saddam Hussein,  for example}. 

Big business doesn't take away your money unless you want to give it to them like big government does through taxation.  

Big business doesn't make more and more laws taking away your freedoms like big government does. 

Big business doesn't waste your money in places you have no desire to spend it like big government does. 

Big business doesn't dictate to you how to educate your children like big government does. 

Big government can kill me, Coca Cola can't. 

Big government can take away my property and children,  Apple can't. 

For those of you who think big government is a good thing, I hope you will reconsider.  Ken and I walk past a government run elementary school every day.  The rest of our walk, we walk through housing tracts and apartments.  The housing tracts and apartments are very well taken care of whereas the school looks terrible. 

Most things that the government gets its hands into deteriorates. The quality becomes poor. Take for instance public schooling and health care.  Why people can't see this is beyond me.  As Dennis Prager says,  "The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen."

The king by justice establishes the land,
but he who exacts gifts and tribute overthrows it.
Proverbs 29:4
