I've always believed "that government is best, which governs least." The state should punish fraud, keep us secure, and get out of our way. It's why I vote for conservative candidates. That, and the fact that Barack Obama is the Beast arising from the sea foretold by the prophet John, who will persecute the faithful during the coming tribulation. It's just good common sense.
My liberal friends want the US Treasury to provide a social safety net - to care for the sick and the poor. This is well-meaning of course, but naïve. Federal programs punish work and contribute to a cycle of poverty. Plus, they give the president power to make everyone receive the mark of blasphemy so they can join him in the fiery pit at the end of days. Unintended consequences, people.
Markets are the most efficient and ultimately most humane way to distribute goods and services. They allow for freedom of choice and they maximize growth. Everything else is straight from the mouth of the False Prophet. And it's socialism.
Overregulation kills private industry, which depresses employment, and it shrinks the wealth of our country. This hurts everyone. Some people think the state is the only actor in the system that can guarantee you won't be harmed by the products you buy. President Obama seems to agree, but he also wants to use his office to seize the throne of Jerusalem and crown himself Messiah in a dreadful parody of our Lord. And that wouldn't be right. Companies have a powerful incentive to provide value, and they won't have you tortured and killed for being a Christian. Let them do their business! We'll all benefit.
I believe hard work and free enterprise made this country great. We shouldn't let the government interfere with that, especially since it wants to confiscate our guns and plunge us into a nightmare world of totalitarianism and despair, before the return of Jesus and the triumph of those who are washed in the Blood of the Lamb. These are the kind of sensible ordinary principles that founded America.
And you know I'm not the only one who thinks this way.
