A government that is big enough to give us everything we want;
is also big enough to take everything away.

Thankfully, the government can’t give me what I want (Matthew 5:6). The great thing about that is that they can’t take it away either.

I agree with you though, from a political perspective. I just wanted to offer the perspective which gives me peace despite economic (and political) hardship.
