No Government Bailout for Me!

I read this quote “Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.” Barry Goldwater as a post from @grandnewparty on Twitter. It really got me thinking about this.

I’ve always been conservative and anti-big-government, but I must admit there have been times that I’ve thought and even said outloud, “I want a bailout for me!” or “Real Estate agents should get a piece of the bailout pie” or even worse, “Show me the money, Honey – er umm…I mean (almost)* President Elect Obama!”
