The recent disclosure that computer hackers from China have successfully hacked the system of the federal government and may have obtained personnel date on all 2.1 million federal employees provides for us a lesson we really ought to pay attention to. Remember, this is the government that wants to control our healthcare. And this is the government that’s responsible for Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service. Over the last 44 years Amtrak has received a whopping $45 billion is subsidies from the federal government. Yes you heard that right. $45 billion.
And the U.S. Postal Service operates with is annual subsidies calculated at $18 billion each and every year. Simply put: Our government is trying to do too much—and it it’s not doing it well. This is the government that wants to do more? The American people ought to be demanding competence on the things that only the government can do and, on other things, we ought to be saying loud and clear: “Thanks, but no thanks.”[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/210498847″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
