Grouch at Right Truth

For me it's pretty simple. The roll of gubment should be:

1. Print Money

2. Defend the shores.

That's about it. They suck at #2.

I'm afraid GWB would not want to hear what I have to say to him.

Hi Debbie, Fed govt. seems to muck up whatever they stick their noses into. I am definitely for Less is More. My vote is going for whoever I think will be the strongest on our National Defense and crush Islamofascism worldwide.

After that I want my candidate to be one who will keep their hands off my liberties, especially in education and the way I choose to raise my children.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comment.

blessings,
Kristee

I just got back from polipundit's blog. I live about 5 minutes from the Ft Bliss gate and hadn't heard anything in the local media about the 12 illegals working on post.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Debbie

Paul: Glad to share the information. That's what blogging is all about.

Kristee: I agree with you. Grouch says, "the less the government does, the better it is for Americans."

If they would do jut ONE thing completely right, like keeping us safe, I'd be happy.

Getting their nose out of how we raise and educate our children is a high priority for most of us.

Thanks for visiting Kristee, and I think you do a great job at your place. I'm a fan of Fred Thompson also.

The federal government's responsibility is a little broader than Grouch says, but not too much. No matter what anyone thinks, it costs money to provide services, including defense. That leads to taxes. Taxes are necessary evil. The methods of taxation are open to debate.

Additionally, beyond defending the shores, there is defense of the homeland. And then there is law enforcement (there has to be a federal element to that).

Also, there is a question of support of science and technology, especially at the very basic problem solving level.

Of course, we can argue from now til the end of the next election and still not agree on whether any other responsibilities are federal and not state/local.

I see a couple of my friends on that list of bloggers with GWB. The blogging influence and element is greater than I ever expected it to be a few years ago.

Tiers of influence...

I expect the government to provide for the health and safety of the citizens of the good old US of A.

Delineating how far that goes would take far too long.

Terri

I'm w/ "Less is More".

Less is better. Limit the money the feds get and you will limit their ability to waste. The military budget should be what is necessary to maintain a military without going to war. Congress should have to approve and add funding to go to war.

Tammy Brewer

I agree with some of what your saying.
Yes: The government should keep their noses out of the way we raise and educate our children. But if they did it very much, there would be a LOT of beaten, hungry, and helpless children out there.
Yes: The government should protect the citizens better but on the other hand people are always complaining about taxes. People need to decide, do you want the amount of taxation that is required to support the cause, or do you want lower taxation with less protection.

Yiming Zhang

Isn't the role of the federal government defined in the US Constitution? I can't find this anywhere in the Constitution. This is unbelievable!
