Reduce government intervention

File under: government, less government

From: Jonathan V., San Antonio, TX

Too often, a question of what can or should be done to address an identified problem implicitly places the burden on the collective -- and by extension, our government. This is seldom a legitimate approach. We have to take control of our own lives and families. We need elected officials who understand that, despite good (sometimes) intentions, our government has done great damage to our general economy and way of life. It has penalized industriousness and subsidized idleness for generations. So changing our mindset is the first and most critical step toward reducing poverty. Get government out of the equation, and we'll put ourselves back to work.
