Government In Our Lives
One of the most encouraging developments in American politics that I have seen in a while is the increased interest and participation by many people all across the country. In a way, it is unfortunate that it took the combination of bail-outs, excessive spending, global warming taxes and regulations, and government-run health care for so many Americans to rise up and take action. But they have, and it is a good thing.
The increased political involvement has slowed the pace of the liberal agenda. It also provides an opportunity for all of us to think deeper about our constitutional system and the role of government in our lives. The question is not just whether this proposal or that one is a good idea. The issues go back to our nation’s founding and involve the inherent tension between the quest for equality and the desire for freedom.
