The natural progress of things is for government to gain ground and for liberty to yield.

- Thomas Jefferson

Problem: Anything. Solution: Government!

Every step along the way, the government has said they are the solution, the only solution, the primary solution.

When we had the great depression, the government was not really the solution and we came out the other side with a citizenry very responsible with their dollars. The citizenry learned valuable lessons. They knew a day may come when they have to take care of themselves. This is no longer desirable, as any discomfort must become the government's responsibility so their power grows and your freedom shrinks. The great depression, as with our economic downturn, is a byproduct of a wondrous and prosperous free market--a market no current politician believes in because it diminishes their power.

You can look away, and look at the government for the solution, but know that you are creeping toward solialism, where mediocrity reigns supreme and opportunity is diminished by all.

Yeah, we know, "It's sooooo harrrrrrrrrrrrd." Socialism is easier, and poisons the soul and spirit while diminishing the possibility of man.

It is your choice, but if you keep making the "easy" choice, do not be so surprised when there are no choices left.

"But it's sooooooooo harrrrd."

Yeah, we know. Now suck it up and learn to handle your finances, responsibly.

With problems in the credit and housing markets worsening, the Bush administration now seems to favor a larger role for government...

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said administration officials are "beginning to put their toe in the water when it comes to government involvement to help the economy. The bad news is they're going to have to do a lot more than that to address the problem."

Is there a difference in parties when both think government is the solution?
