The government shut down over the weekend and this morning, the sun still came up. Will we ever learn that shutting down the federal government is not the catastrophe the media leads us to believe?
Far too much of the federal government is duplication and bloat. Far too much of what the federal government does are things that you and I, as individuals, and our communities can handle. Far too much of what the federal government has taken upon itself is NOT mandated in the Constitution. Far too much of what the federal government does are things that We The People have abdicated.
For these reasons, we must elect a different kind of person to represent us. We need people who are willing to make the hard calls, cut spending and show the American people HOW they can fix things themselves. We need people who are NOT looking to make a career in politics but understand that it is a privilege to SERVE.
