But let us remember, at the same time, government is sacred, and not to be trifled with.
Our citizens are tired of big government raising their taxes and cooking up new ways to micromanage their lives, our citizens are tired of big government killing jobs with their do-gooder policies. In short the people are Fed Up!
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.
One side of the American psyche wants smaller government, lower taxes, and more choices for individuals, even if those choices increase risk. The other wants a strong social safety net to protect the weakest among us, even if it costs more to minimize risk.
