Bigger Government

Can our government get any bigger? At this rate we'll need a sponsoring country soon, perhaps more than one. We are a rather large and needy society with a government that has a voracious appetite for power and the inability to self-sustain. Our Congress keeps telling us how much they want to do for us, but the reality is the pharmaceutical and insurance lobby, along with big business in general, have a greater influence on Congress than we the voters, ever will. Our President appears to be determined to provide us with a government that will oversee every area of our lives and he seems to believe he should be quite influential internationally as well. I don't know if all this hunger for power is his personal trait or just goes with living in the White House. I do think if the men living in the White House want the rest of the world to answer to them, they need to remember, governments that cannot sustain themselves tend to run out of power when the support beneath them, gives out.
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. a Proverb of Holy Scripture
