Weak government can sting - George Pyle | The Salt Lake Tribune
"Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." — Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address
I don’t think this is what the Gipper meant. But some good digging by The Salt Lake Tribune’s crack staff in just the last few days turned up at least three cases where government was, indeed, the problem. Not because of what it did, but because of what it failed to do. ...
Some clients say DWS workplace woes also affect them.
Fire has grown to 9,000 acres, forced evacuations.
... Of course government at all levels can be too big, too nosy, too much in everybody’s way. It is still a human institution, after all, and falls far short of the glory of Plato.
But when our politicians get ahead by demeaning and belittling the very idea of government, it can become a horrible self-fulfilling prophecy.
