I read an interesting article about helping America return to more Conservative values. This guy is trying to sell a book, but he suggests a "blueprint" of values can be created by asking 6 questions about any government action or policy under consideration. I believe these questions can just as easily serve as a litmus test for how "involved" government is in our lives socially. Here they are:
1. Is it the government’s business?
2. Does it promote self-reliance?
3. Is it responsible?
4. Does it make America more prosperous?
5. Does it make us safer?
6. Does it unify us?
I believe Liberals and Conservatives alike can agree that these questions are good ones to ask before we give the Fed the right to make policy.
I will comment this blog and list existing policies which I believe should get a resounding "NO!" to these questions.
