Wow I actually agree with Alex Jones on something as it has to do with the NSA spying and how that is a problem. To say the least as it relates to our fourth amendment and our civil liberties. And that is as far as I would go as far as this video goes and I no way endorse his conspiracy theories. But the whole NSA spying issue is something that definitely that needs real Congressional oversight both in the House and Senate and maybe they could do it jointly. To try to get this under control and then stopped.

I don’t love it, but I do find it amusing, even sadly so when I hear people who call themselves fiscal Conservatives, who claim government is too big and spends too much money. And yet they spend taxpayer dollars on bills that if they don’t know that they’ll get thrown out on constitutional grounds, their lawyers at the very least are smart enough to know that. And yet taxpayers still have to pay for the costs of them writing their bills and paying for staff’s work and everything else. North Dakota and their anti-abortion bill, that bans abortion after six-weeks of pregnancy, is a perfect example of that.
If you can forget about the unconstitutionality and big government aspects of the bill, with the state stepping in to make health care decision for competent women, you can also dislike the bill for the waste of tax dollars that come with it. Money that could be used to pay for schools, roads, hospitals, law enforcement, jails, prisons, or lowering property taxes. Is being spent to pass a bill that will eventually get thrown out. And that is before you add up the costs of what it will take to defend the unconstitutional law in the first place. But this politics and politicians don’t take positions too many times to be consistent and accurate. But to meet short-term political goals.
If there’s any good news about all of these so-called scandals that are going on in the Obama Administration. Is that it gives critics about big government and I’m one of them a chance to not only examine the Federal Government but a chance to say look. We’ve been telling you people who want a big centralise Federal Government that this government is simply too big to manage and. Mistakes like this are simply going to happen that this is a consequence of having an Internal Revenue Service. The size of a mid-size city with the budget of probably a major city and a tax code that’s probably the largest book in the world. And that Uncle Sam’s workforce and budget are simply too big and as a result mistakes like this are going to happen. Because its simply too much for any one administration to manage by themselves. But that making the Federal Government smaller both financially and in workforce is simply not good enough either. If that it doesn’t come with serious reforms to make the government better and more efficient by doing less. And by doing what we need to do, doing those things better.
The reason why I’m in favor of limited government rather than having a government that can try to try is the key word here. To do anything for us whenever it becomes popular, is that when government is limited to only doing what we need it to do. Rather then what we want it to, we meaning popular opinion is that government can then concentrate on only doing the things that we. Need it to do and we simply do not need a Federal-workforce of eight million people roughly the population of New York City and North Carolina. When you only need the Federal Government to defend us, protect us from terrorists and criminals who operate in multiple states. Regulate the economy to protect workers and consumers from predators and represent us in world affairs. And then things like managing public-infrastructure and prioritizing roads and bridges that sorta thing. So we can get around the entire country in an affordable and efficient manner. And medical-research but the rest of the Federal-budget with a lot of it in the tax-code does not need to be there.
If we were really interested in balancing the budget as a country the Federal Government would be a hell of a lot smaller. And the tax-code would maybe be a hundred pages if that something that could be read and understood within hours instead of having most people never able to read the whole. Book because most if not all of the breaks would be gone from the tax-code and no taxes wouldn’t be higher. Because we could bring those down as well with a much leaner government and tax-code.

All of these abortion restriction laws are coming in red states that like to complain about big government. And government interfering in our lives and so forth and yet they write laws that do exactly that. And interfere with the most personal of decisions that Americans will ever make which get’s to our healthcare. In this case women’s healthcare and who decides whether women give birth or not after being pregnant. Apparently big government in red states is government they do not like mainly as it relates to the economy. But big government that they do like as it has to do with our personal lives is okay, because, “it’s in our national interest to have government making these decisions for us. Rather than individuals have the freedom and responsibility to make these decisions for ourselves.” And then you get to the constitutional and legal aspects of this where these laws will be ruled unconstitutional. Because of the rock solid pro-choice majority on it. And you have states defending laws in court with taxpayer funds that will be ruled unconstitutional. Money that would’ve been spent for other things that would not get thrown out.

Imagine if President Obama said he wanted more Americans on Public Assistance. Instead of in Higher Education, imagine how the Right Wing would’ve reacted. They would’ve called Barack Obama a Socialist, see we’ve been right all along. Barack Obama is a Socialist. He wants more people in America dependent on government. Instead of taking care of themselves, he wants to transform America into Europe.
Rick Santorum and the rest of the Right Wing can’t have it both ways and be credible. If you believe Higher Education and being Self Sufficient is the right thing. Instead of being dependent on Public Assistance. Something they’ve been saying for eighty years if not longer. Then you can’t say well thats a bad idea now, just because someone you don’t like agrees with you. What you should be saying instead, is that Government Dependence is bad and we need more people working. In America paying their own bills, instead of living off of people who do. Even Barack Obama understands this, we’ve been right all along.
People simply for the most part unless they are an athlete or entertainer. Can’t make it on their own in America, with just a High School diploma. Are economy is just too advanced now, people need Higher Education. And get those extra skills just to have a good chance of getting a good job in this country. Which is something that President Obama was acknowledging and Rick Santorum doesn’t understand.
