Too Big

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” Gerald R. Ford

I don’t normally write much about government and politics, but the events of today have gotten me thinking a bit. Our government is too big and they are getting into things that are really none of their business. Too many people are looking to the government to take care of them, which just encourages the government to be too involved in people’s everyday lives. Think about it…

As a child grows the caring parents teach the child to be responsible and self sufficient, so that when they are adults they will be able to get a job and care for themselves and their families. Isn’t the government doing the opposite? They are trying to get people to depend on the government and not be independent. I wonder why they are doing that…?

I wish that people would wake up and see what is happening before it is too late.

My one comfort: God is in control of all things.
