Big Labor Unwittingling Hits the Nail on the Head of What is Wrong With this Country

John Gage, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, said today (among other things):

“People are going to say, ‘Huh? What have the Democrats done for us?'”

He may not realize it, but he has said exactly what is wrong with this country now.  I have a wake-up call for everyone, government isn’t supposed to do anything for us except protect us from foreign threat, domestic threat, and preserve our rights.  Basically they are supposed to make sure you are safe, have a fair shake just like everyone else, and make sure that we stay friendly with as many foreign countries as we can.  Read the constitution folks, it’s all there.

Do you really think that Kennedy said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” because he thought it would sound cool years later?  He was one of the few politicians in the last 100 years or so that believe that government wasn’t the solution to all our problems, and responsible for taking care of everyone.  The government is not supposed to take care of you, they are only supposed to make sure you have the same opportunity to take care of yourself that everyone else has.
