Reagan Was Right

In his first inaugural address, Ronald Reagan discussed how our overgrown government has become a bigger problem than our government not doing enough. Here is some of what he said.

"You and I, as individuals, can, by borrowing, live beyond our means, but for only a limited period of time. Why, then, should we think that collectively, as a nation, we are not bound by that same limitation?

"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem.

"So, as we begin, let us take inventory. We are a nation that has a government--not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our Government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed."

I say it is high time we listened to the Gipper, and cut some fat! We must do away with bloated government bureaucracy and control before it does away with us.
