AlterNet: "What Government Does for You"

What Government Does for You | Alternet

The better question I believe should be what government should be doing for the people and this is an area where. As a Liberal I tend to disagree with Progressives, Neoconservatives and Libertarians on, even though Liberals and Libertarians both believe in Limited Government but Libertarians would go even further. Then that and they believe in Small Government but what government should be doing for the people, is what the people can't do for themselves or can't do for themselves as well. That individuals should have the freedom to chart their own course in life and then government can come in, when people slip. And need a hand up, not a handout to get themselves back on their feet but that the people should be able to run and control their own lives, as long as they aren't hurting innocent people with what they are doing. And then be held accountable, good or bad for the decisions they make with their choices, that tax payers shouldn't be subsidizing bad decisions of individuals but then when we need help, for no fault of our. Own, should be able to get help when we need it.
