Do you have faith that your government can provide your needs?
Let's face it, every administration promises better life. Do you think your current government can deliver?
No, I don't believe they can, I also do not believe they should.
If the pilgrims had believed that the government was responsible for them having a "better life" we would not have the great country we have today.
If we don't straighten up and take responsibility for our own lives, we will not have this great country in the future!
I don't believe my government should provide my needs. I do believe that I paid into Social Security and Medicare for most of my working life and I do believe I deserve something back from that. Otherwise, the government is simply running a Ponzi Scheme to beat me out of my money that I could have invested for myself. The government wants people to be dependent on it...dont' fall into that trap if you can help it as it is an absolute ticket to socialism in this country. What we need as citizens is the opportunity and the space to provide for ourselves...get the damn government out of our way. WB
Not at all, not any administration, and not any government.
I will supply my own needs and fulfill my desires. ALL that I ask of my government, is that they leave me alone while I do it.
My efforts should be enough, make it or break it..........do not tax my work to support those who will not work.
don't even bother to tell me about the " jobless", tho it is a sad state, there is plenty of " WORK" to be done ......every day. Far too many say it is 'too hard', 'too noisy', 'too hot' etc..........they put too much emphasis on why not to WORK, than they do on the work at hand.
Let the government leave me alone, and I will see after myself and those in my house.
I am responsible for providing for my needs.. All I ask is that the social security I PAID in for all of my working life is there for me at 65--I don't think it will be though.
Government's job is not supposed to be providing for us--it is to run the country. Personal responsibility is not only a wonderful things...but rather rare.
Absolutely not. I work long hours to supply my needs. Our government only helps those who are too lazy to help themselves
Government providing your needs? Hmmm... I think I can provide for my OWN needs!!
Why would I want the government to provide for my needs? Who is the government besides a bunch of strangers who feel they are somehow granted divine authority to tell me what to eat and to stick their hands down my pants when I decide to board an airplane?
Why would anyone want a tyrant like that to provide for them?
Is there a woman on earth who would think it right that her husband told her what she should eat, searched her for explosives and weapons every time they got into the car, and whose husband wanted to put cameras on every street corner "just in case" she might be cheating who would want that man in her life?
Then why is it ok for the government to do it to us? Why would we want "that" to even think about providing for us?
The government always promising that things will be better reminds me of an abusive husband:
"Here honey, here's some flowers. I promise things will get better. I'm really trying to be more trusting and more understanding. You know I love you. You'll be out of this hospital in no time. Please forgive me, won't you?"
I don't know about 'needs' - like the other people who've answered, I usually provide for those myself - but I know that the UK government doesn't usually deliver on any of its promises, no matter which party gets in, and I'd guess that most governments the world over are much the same.
Maybe someday..lol...but now I dont think they could!! We both know our government is getting worse...do you agree with me?...
We are having another federal election in Canada. 4th election in 7 years. I do think that the government can provide for my basic needs. The always seem to spend lots of money on the military and other extras that we don't really need. We have a great health care system that doesn't cost a lot for families or individuals so that is nice. We pay a bit more for taxes for that service though.
Why would you want an intrusion like that in your life. I don't want them to pick my dr. tell me what to eat and what to do.
So no, the gov't needs to its job, protect and defend. And I'll do mine, - taking care of business.
ALL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS TO DO IS PUT BACK IN THE GLASS- STEAGALL ACT and stop giving big business the people tax money. I know that they not for that how they get there money to run for there office

Due to Obamacare, I am now on Medicaid, along with thousands of other newly eligible adults in my state. For the last three or four years, the large pharmaceutical company that makes my medication had a program where they provide my meds for free (for people with very low income like I have). My...

George Will - "Steady 5 percent growth probably won't happen. Also, his pledge to get federal spending down to 18 percent of GDP is very hard to do with an aging population and a welfare state that exists to transfer wealth to the elderly."A lot of people, myself included, believe in the...
