Let's Talk Albuquerque!


"The Government isn't the Solution to most Problems, it very often is the Problem."

"The Government isn't the Solution to most Problems, it very often is the Problem."


Political affiliation aside, maybe the next elected official who utters this sound-bite, "the government isn't the solution to most problems, it very often is the problem" should step down.  Frankly it is an admission thet he is a FAILURE.  And there is a lot of that to be passed around in our current government.

Maybe it is time for us to fire all of those who espouse such an idea. In basic Macro-Economic we were taught that government assumes Large Capital Intensive Projects that provide public good, partly because of its  power to tax and raising money through the issuance of bonds.  The government raises capital through the issuance of bonds and through taxation for public utilities, roads , highways, dams, etc to further our development.

What has happened in this country is that the "corporations" have corrupted the government and has gamed the system where they are taking over the role of the government.  Using such phrase like "the government is not the solution to most problem," is trickery to the populous.  Often times we are blind-sided by the outcomes.

Let's look at "Security Contractors" for example, do you think they are more effective than our military? Let me ask you, where did they get their training from?

I would submit to you that this is more about money, power, and influence than anything else.  It is a corporatist agenda, plain and simple.  

I do not think we need a big government.  I think we need a right-sized government. A government that will not be a party to the corporate scams;  A government that is not wasteful; One that will enforce our laws; one that will stand up the the archetects of fascism, stare them dead in the face and order them to take their ideas to somewhere else.  

So for all those who utter the sound bite, "the Government isn't the Solution to most Problems, it very often is the Problem," let me suggest that you consider this idea, "follow the money" and start doing some research on Andrew Jackson...I think he makes a lot of sense.

So long as you count unions in there and what they have done by corrupting government, then I can go along with you. We need to get back to some Jeffersonian thinking. "Some people wake up thinking the world owes them a living. They are wrong. You have to go make it."Not Thomas Jefferson… My dad who brought with him from the old country that inner drive that helped found our country. Remember that the Declaration of Independence states life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It doesn't guarantee happiness. It says that you have the opportunity to pursue it. We have become a country, I am afraid, that thinks happiness should be dropped into your lap.

C Lloyd,

                  You are right on the money; I have to disagree with Rick, unions were put in place for the very reason you stated corporate scams they were abusing their employees and sub standard conditions. I have a very good friend who is in the airline business. If you knew how short of man power they worked under; how one long time employee was fired for no good reason. It has been the union helping them in trying to get appropriate man power and oh yes the employee was re-instated. I used to feel the way Rick did but I have seen the union do many a good thing!

I agree with the comment that we need the 'right size' government.  Of course, there are many useful purposes for government.  The problem is that it has mushroomed in size during recent decades and does not always make an efficient use of the money that it is entrusted with.  Too much debt and not enough results.

Good Evening C Lloyd, the first sentence of your post say's it all.  The government must stand tall and provide leadership in the future.
