Why do we ask government for help?


The point of The Constitution was to restrain the power of government. Today we want to give more power to the government. Really the more power we give them, the worse things get for the people. I am curious, why are people still looking towards government for solutions? Government solutions cause more problems. The problem isn't the corporations, it is the govt helping the corporations. Corporations are the ones who write the regulations. Corporations benefit from regulations because it eliminates competition, thus all the problems we see. Then govt explains, we need more regulations.

    It isn't the federal governments job to help us find jobs, provide welfare. If anything it is up to the individual or at the very most state government.

    Yep, and they aren't the first government to do it. I think it sounds more like robbing peter, keeping most of the money, and giving a small portion to Paul. Seems like it's working, ha!.

    The regulations are written by the corporations to eliminate competition. The real monopoly is is government helping big business. Government looks out for their pockets not the public. Welfare creates more people to be dependent.

    Interesting, I feel we are moving to the nanny state as well. People are taught that they are entitled to these services. Your right we are taking less responsibility, but I feel the govt forces it on us. They want our tax money.
