I said it in anoter post. This government that wants to bring down health care costs is the same one that spent five grand on a hammer. Comrade Obama brought up the Post Office. I started thinking about other things the federal government has screwed up, like medicare, social security. Then I decided it would be easier and shorter to list the things the government has done right. Here’s my list.
- Created the world’s greatest military to protect our freedoms from foreign threats (who will save us from the domestic threats in Congress and the White House?)
- Defeated the Nazis
- Toppled the USSR without a shot
Other than the military, which is awesome–despite the government’s waste even there–I can’t think of one program it has created or one bureau that is efficient. It has the anti-Midas touch. Everything it touches turns to crap.
No thank you. I’ll take my chances with the insurance companies. At least I know what their intentions are. And despite how much they might make off of me, I know they don’t have the power to legislate my rights away in the name of the common good.
