  • The gov't has produced several good things. Social Security, welfare, head start, medicaid, food regulations, water regulations, freedom, de-regulation of monopolies, etc.

    The problem isn't that the government hasn't produced anything good. The problem is when the people start taking advantage of the things put in place. And when the people in office become corrupt.

  • before anyone says welfare is bad let me say that no one was ever intended to live on welfare permanently... citizens taking advantage. But also, congressmen weren't meant to make it a career, some govt corruption.

  • the issue I have is the government rarely produces anything for the right reason. This is why everything is corrupt. Nothing is truly created with the sole purpose of helping. There is always some backdoor hidden agenda.

  • i think the anon. at 6:56 is full of it, and people on PA would never say that. i was going to say government cheese. but seriously, do you like your libraries, fire stations, EMT, health dept, schools, ROADS, retirement, police, the fact that kids have to get a licence to drive... it goes on but i will stop there, i am as mistrusting of the gov as anyone, but that doesnt mean i dont appreciate what they provide, that essentially make the difference between a first and third world country.
