Cheap Country

I do think that our government is dysfunctional. This is a trait I share with many conservatives. I pin the reasons for that on different things, however. Partly, I think the trouble is that we're too cheap to actually pay our taxes.

Part of the reason I support the government, at least to a greater extent than conservatives do, is because I like the infrastructure it provides. I like public education and of course, I support a safety net and public healthcare. I think the government is probably the best tool for these things, because each citizen ostensibly has a stake in it.

I just think that the government doesn't work if we don't put in the effort or cough up the money to pay for it, and that's where we are lacking as a society.
