Ronald Reagan Said......

Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem.

-Ronald Reagan-

The finger prints of government meddling in the economy are all over the current financial crisis. Where we will fail going forward, is that the people now expect the government to solve these problems that these clown created. The only way to solve the risks facing us today is to completely defund the government and remove all of these things from the portfolio of government involvement. Last year, the Federal Government spent over US$ 2.5 trillion of your money.

A federal government has 5 main responsibilities:
1. National defense
2. International diplomacy
3. A system of law
4. A monetary system
5. Protecting interstate commerce
The rest of government responsibilities are the portfolio of the States.

If anyone says that the States can't afford the balance of the responsibilities, then they should be shot. The Federal Government has squeezed States on their ability to fund through onerous taxes and have hamstrung State initiatives through massive unfunded mandates.

Time for a civil war.
