Thoughts of the Day - I'm from the government and I'm here to help

The government wanted to tackle education. We are now drowning in student debt. We spend more per child, but still get no measurable increase in academic scores.

The government wanted to tackle drugs. Incarceration rates skyrocketed, but the drugs remained. Cartels are having big success in Mexico. This has led to an massive spike in illegal immigration.

The government wanted to tackle recessions. The creation of the Fed has led to more severe recessions and depressions. And there have been more recessions after than before the Fed.

The government wanted to tackle terrorism. The Middle East is completely destabilized. ISIS is booming. This led to the Europe refugee crisis.

The government wanted to tackle health care. Insurance rates skyrocketed. People lost their coverage and their doctors, spending more for less services. Nutritional guidelines made us fatter and sicker. The VA health system is a mess.

The government wanted to tackle income inequality. The rich got richer. The poor got poorer. The middle class evaporated. The jobs went out of the country.

Entrepreneurs and small businesses wanted to help. They built America, made some wonderful inventions, helped human civilization reach new heights. And now, they'll help fix government.
