When my parents were kids, the government provided unparalleled force projection and huge improvements in infrastructure, all with a balanced budget and then some as the economy grew and diversified.
Now, the government does none of the above or even performs competently at those objectives, the budget is housed, and my parents never got any freer or more equal even as they now approach 70 years… of living in the progressive eschaton. And the only way I, their child, have exceeded expectations, is by the grace of God and their innumerable privations as private citizens.
Why can’t government be like that again? (And before anyone says something smart about racism, I think ‘nigger’ would be an improvement from some of the outstanding things people have called me.)
