GOVERNMENT AND YOU

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 7, 2021

         RATINGS FOR CABLE NEWS NETWORKS ARE DOWN, INCLUDING FOX NEWS. THE REASON? PEOPLE HAVE GROWN TIRED OF POLITICS.

         AND WHY SHOULDN’T THEY BE? POLITICIANS MAKE PROMISES THEY DON’T KEEP AND WHAT THEY DO NEVER SEEMS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS OR IMPROVE LIVES. THINGS, LIKE THE NATIONAL DEBT, ONLY SEEM TO GET WORSE.

         HAVE YOU NOTICED THE BIGGEST EMPLOYER DURING THE PANDEMIC WHICH SHUTDOWN BUSINESSES AND CAUSED MASSIVE UNEMPLOYMENT WAS GOVERNMENT? TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE EMPLOYED BY FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WHEN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO KEEP THE COUNTRY AND ITS BOOMING ECONOMY OPEN.

         WHAT DOES GOVERNMENT DO, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS, THAT WE CAN’T DO BETTER OURSELVES? WHY IS NO PROGRAM OR AGENCY EVER CUT? WE ARE ALWAYS ADDING MORE AGENCIES, PROGRAMS AND DEBT, NEVER CUTTING THINGS THAT ARE INEFFECTIVE OR OUTMODED. GOVERNMENT HAS REPLACED GOD AS OUR CENTRAL FOCUS AND WE ARE SEEING THE CONSEQUENCES, JUST AS THE ANCIENT ISRAELITES DID WHEN THEY WORSHIPPED FALSE GODS.

IF WE ARE TO TURN THINGS AROUND WE MUST START WITH WEANING OURSELVES FROM BIG GOVERNMENT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
