trying to destroy America
You have some serious Bush obsession...and not the good kind.

If you think that G.W. Bush is not relevant to the GOP's current problems, you have a problem.
I really don't care whether you deal with that problem or not.

The limited role of government described in this post is what our Founding Fathers knew was best and what our society was based on. Our world has seen big governments before and we have seen what happens when they become more powerful than the people. We have seen what happens when the government and businesses are playing games behind the scenes and putting the people on the back burner. It never ends well and this “change” we are seeing today will not end well. Businesses will become more and more frustrated that they cannot make a profit especially when they are competing in a global environment where other countries do not have these political burdens. This frustration will lead to more and more “creative” (illegal or quasi-illegal) methods of making money in order to survive. The public will continue to be outraged by the “evil” corporations and demand the government passes more regulations to punish them which will make the situation worse. We are seeing this trend now. Instead of blaming the source of the problem (government) we blame the businesses for doing what they need to do to survive in this rigged game that is the economy. Then we give the government more control which was the problem in the first place. This cycle only leads to bigger government, a weaker business sector and, in turn, a weaker economy. If today’s economic situation isn’t proof enough for this argument, research some history and use some common sense and you will see more than enough evidence to understand that we are headed in a bad direction.
