When Big Government Doesn’t Let Us Help Ourselves

As a conservative who believes in the power of individuals and private charities to transform lives, I’ve been told the same lie again and again: “That’s all good, but only government is big enough to take care of us all.”

But what if that’s not true?  What if government has simply barged in, taken from us our ability to help ourselves and crowded all competitors?

The so-called government “shutdown” (really a “slim down” as 83% of the government is still functioning) has been instructive. Again and again, the federal government has not only closed its doors but it has actively prevented citizens and states from stepping in to fill the void.

See how recent political shenanigans have shown us this is a Big Lie.
