The answer is demanding TAX CUTS. As Milton Friedman points out, the politicians will ALWAYS spend more than they get and should be kicked out of office for doing so. Getting and keeping taxes low will lower the level of their mischief and will allow our country to thrive economy.
I wish I had some wondrous insight on how to get the government to be smaller.
Well, actually I do. As always it’s through God. People underestimated God while overestimating the government. We’d need a revival that would make the Great Awakening look like a sleepy slap at an alarm clock.
I used to be skeptical about hell fire approaches, and am not quite so much any more, but what really stank about the way that was used at the Great Awakening was that it was tied to a do-you-feel-lucky-punk human-philosophy Calvinism. And that hobbled the results greatly. We need a biblical God-is-love faith to cut past all the spiritual B.S. The best chance for it will be through evangelization of exactly that kind. As close to Jesus-like preaching as we can possibly get. We don’t know what kind of people God has prepared, but we can’t just lay back lazily and assume the worst either.
